Smoke or Fire - This Sinking Ship

I forget where I first heard them, but it was a few years ago and I can't believe that I haven't posted this yet. I've had this band on rotation for a couple years now, partly because they're what I grew up listening to and every time I put it on, it's like a throwback to the olden days. It's basically punk rock with a melodic hook, a la Rise Against or newer Anti-Flag. Full choruses and harmonic riffs keep the record focused around the vocals, while the beat plow a path of energy throughout the entire album. Amazing, amazing record.
