The Everymen, a dual vocal fronted powerhouse hailing from New Jersey return with “These Mad Dogs Need Hero’s.”  We came to find The Everymen when Foley texted me after spending time on Bandcamp, and commanded that I stop what I was doing to experience the opening track “Co-Dependents Day.”  I’ll admit I wasn’t prepared for the sonic pop onslaught that prompted me to throw the track onto our Volume 5 Apple Playlist.  “Co-Dependents Day” brought images of Chrissie Hynde fronting the Cruisers, a beautifully haunting homage to when melody and darkness wrapped up in each other perfectly.  The strongest points of this record are absolutely the marriage and rediscovery of horns that would make the E-Street band proud.  The Everymen and “The Mad Dogs Need Hero’s” in particular are a much-needed shot in the arm to an organic roots rock and roll that has seen the sterilization of pop for far too long.  Outside of the opening track, to me, the strongest tracks are “Oh Sweet Lucia,”  “I Woke up” and “My Pretty Green Eyed Carolina Girl.”  So, do yourself a favor and find this release, buy it, see The Everymen live, and give this release your full support.
