FM Static started out as a side project for Thousand Foot Krutch frontman Trevor McNevan and drummer Steve Augustine, but as the project started growing wings they focused on this more. “My Brain Says Stop, But My Heart Says Go” is FM Static’s fourth studio album and it’s being released by indie label Tooth and Nail Records.
When you start the album you get hit with their signature pop punk right away. The first track, which is the title track for this album, is poppy and fairly catchy. The rest of the album though is pretty much a carbon copy of the songs before it. “F.M.S.T.A.T.I.C” doesn’t do much but just showcase their endorsement for cheer squads. It’s a fun track but that’s really about it.
I’m not sure what else I can write about this album. I’m sure this is a great album for a 15 year old girl who just wants to bob her head while searching for nude Justin Beiber pics on the internet. Other than that it’s your standard pop punk record with very little thought. Nothing ground breaking here just good time hooks and summer anthems. Let the good times roll.
“My Brain Says Stop, But My Heart Says Go” comes out April 5, 2011 on Tooth and Nail Records
