Hiya. The record's been out a few weeks now and the reviews have started trickling in. Copied a few below in case anyone's interested.

I reviewed the band's last album and described them as like the Gin Blossoms and this full lengther, due to be released on Bombed Out later this year, solidifies that opinion. While the vocals are a bit more 'throaty' and less polished than Gin Blossoms, there's a definite Replacements or even The Gaslight Anthem vibe to this band and this album. And it means this record is crammed full of huge singalong songs - from the opening 'Sudden Glow' right through to closer 'For The Children Of Judas' the band write catchy tune after catchy tune. What I like about this album is that it is well written, mixes up the pace but remains interesting and catchy throughout. The slower songs such as 'Feeling Nothing' allow you to get your breath back ready for further huge singalongs. Tracks like 'Static on the Dial' and 'That Summer' just have awesome riffs and beg to be sung along on a hot summer's day. Peachfuzz manage to bridge the gap between pop and punk perfectly and should draw in fans of both genres in equal measure. If there's any justice, 'Everything Takes Forever' will get a stack of rave reviews. 4/5 PUNKTASTIC

Peachfuzz are all about nostalgia - and it's self-confessed. The Bridgend trio formed over mutual feeling that no one was writing the songs they wanted to hear anymore. Evolved from the Northern punk scene, Peachfuzz offer up big, melodic choruses powered by chugging guitars and gruff yet charming vocals. The elements all pull together on their sophomore effort - think Gin Blossoms jamming with Pollen. You'll think you've heard it before and it'll remind you of a hundred summers. Costing the princely sum of £350 to record, this is the bargain of the season and it'll be fuzzing round your brain long after it's faded. ROCK SOUND Magazine

Oh man this just blew me away; totally awesome Indie Rock, big on the ROCK, in a Lemonheads (Ben Deilly era), Teenage Fanclub and Replacements style. This is the stuff I could listen to all day long, 10 tracks and everyone a scorcher and an album that gets stronger with each passing track it seems. The production is spot on and those "whoa whoa" back ups slay me! Great lyrics and very nice layout/artwork. Last song but one "Are We Broken?" is an acoustic track with a melancholy violin sounding so good and it breaks things up beautifully before "For The Children Of Judas" finishes it off so well in maybe a Buffalo Tom kind of way? And then I play it through again. The mighty Bombed Out Records have done it again, Cliff bless 'em!!!!! SUSPECT DEVICE Zine

Bouncy power-pop from Welsh trio Peachfuzz with gruff vocals and a 90s American indie-rock feel on their sophomore album; they verge on pop-punk at times but have a rockier edge. The album begins with the fast paced ‘Sudden Glow’; a great riff and nice harmonies bringing to mind early R.E.M. slightly. ‘Let’s Get Healed’ is jangly and indie in a Sebadoh kind of way, even perhaps a bit reminiscent of Shudder To Think at times (occasionally they bring to mind The Manic Street Preachers too; but that’s mostly due to the vocal tone). Peachfuzz are more pop-punk though and all the way through this record there are danceable tunes that are great to sing along to. Adam Jones gruff vocals are emotive and a great counterpoint to the poppy tunes and his guitar work is solid and concise. Their sound is quite bass heavy and Lewis Kreft provides meaty, sometimes complex bass lines. The 90s influence is quite obvious but you can’t really pinpoint it to any specific bands most of the time, there’s just an underlying feeling of nostalgia which pervades every tune with the odd twang of a slightly familiar riff, but these are often fleeting and quickly get swallowed into the whole. ‘Static On The Dial’ is particularly fuzz-soaked and the vocal harmonies and juicy bass makes it particularly memorable. Adam often sings about music shows, memories and small town living. ‘Yr Sons And Daughters’ is one that combines all of these and lyrically it has quite an impact. Much of the album does and luckily they have the melodies to back it up. This is a really solid record; great tunes, bouncy rhythms courtesy of Jon Roche’s drums, an honest feel and a nostalgic 90s twang which nicely counteracts all the dreadful 80s sounding rubbish that’s around at the moment. 10/13 ROOM THIRTEEN ZIne

The second album from Bridgend-based Peachfuzz arrives louder, harder and better than their 2008 debut, ‘So Here We Are Tonight’. A crisp production (rumoured to have cost a ludicrously low £350) allows the group to let rip across 10 tracks of jagged riffs, layered lyrics and singalong choruses. On the surface, these are feelgood songs about raw human emotion, but look beyond all the talk of hazy summer days and epic small town hedonism and you will find a darker heart beating away as the album focuses on a single night on the town which spirals out of control and is revisited through the songs by those who witnessed it, those who perpetuated it and those who must endure it. ‘Everything Takes Forever’ is an uplifting, refreshingly honest record that doesn’t condescend its subject matter or sell the listener short, and for a relatively unknown group, Peachfuzz have delivered a seriously good album that is tight with the kind of tunes, insight and contemplative songwriting that has already made stars of lesser bands.

Hope you're all well!

Hey all! We have just installed the bandcamp app at our Facebook page. This means that by clicking on the music tab at the bottom of the list to your left (the one with the little blue chevron next to it) you can listen to pretty much everything we've ever recorded here at this site. For those who may be interested there's also a link for a free download of EP1, which is an acoustic EP that Adam put out via Bombed Out earlier this year. We hope you'll find something you like amongst all that stuff. In the meantime we are working hard on record#3. Here's a taster in the form of the opening track Down To Me. We hope this message finds you all happy and well. Rock'n'roll forever!

Bombed out records have both Cd's for 3 quid and 5 quid respectively, or you could get their stuff from their bigcartel page, I'm sure shipping to Australia wouldn't be massively expensive.
