5 Days Ahead – As Life Passes You By

Pennsylvania has been slowly turning out some great bands these past few years and The Starting Line, The Prize Fight, and Don’t Look Down are a few bands that have done the state proud. Well, fasten your seatbelts because 5 Days Ahead are heading in that same direction.

As Life Passes You By combines emo, pop-punk, and scattered screams that add to a new brilliant sound. The various influences of the band are all poured into one on this album; the vocal harmonies are incredible and the lyrics bring you on a musical trip from friendships gone bad to heartbreak to the small things in life that make us smile. The songs are very catchy, yet they all can stand alone. 5 Days Ahead have progressed tremendously since their debut independent release, through hard work and honesty, they have a great CD to show for it.
