In the few short weeks following the debut of 'Anywhere But Here', Gainstrive recieved in not one, but TWO write ups in publications around the world! Rock Arena's online music magazine, which is based in the UK, featured our new record on their upcoming artists page which was very humbling. A week later, Overdrive Magazine did a review of the EP and gave it an 89 out of 100!
Here is a short excerpt from the review:
"REFRESHING AND ENJOYABLE GAINSTRIVE’S LATEST ALBUM, CONSISTING OF ONLY FIVE TRACKS THAT DON’T EXCEED ANYTHING MORE THAN 4-5 MINUTES IN DURATION IS SUCH A SWEET LITTLE ALBUM HOLDING UP TO THE OLD SAYING “GOOD THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES”. ‘ANYWHERE BUT HERE’ IS WELL DEVELOPED AND POSSIBLY THE PERFECT TASTE TEST OF THIS BAND, IT’S JUST WHAT WE NEED IN THE ALTERNATE-ROCK SCENE, AS AN INDEPENDENT BAND FROM PHILADELPHIA THEY HAVE NOT DISAPPOINTED THEIR FANS WITH THIS NEW ALBUM RELEASED ON THE 17TH OF MARCH 2018. WITH LYRICS THAT HIT DEEP WITHIN YOUR CORE, YOU CAN’T HELP BUT FALL IN LOVE AND FORGET YOUR SURROUNDINGS. IF YOU THOUGHT THEY WERE ALREADY AMAZING, WELL YOU’D BE CORRECT."
It has been a tremendous honor to receive such a raving review from these great publications, not to mention the great feedback we've been getting online from our growing fan base! We're humbled that people are listening to our EP not only in the states, but all over the world!
Many great things are in the works for us, and you can expect to hear a HUGE announcement in the following week for all new and exciting content! STAY TUNED!
