Leafeater are a Bradford 3 piece and have been playing up and down the country for what seems like ages now (5 years to be exact), twice going on tour with Terrorvision in the late 90's, and they are still unsigned. So they decide to release this 10 track Album, Transit Days, on their own record label GAK Records. And what an impressive album it is too. There are moments on this album that are truly spectacular. Their ability to create catchy, sing along choruses but still keeping that punk element is clearly in effect here.
They have often been compared to punk bands such as Green Day, but they are so much more. They have created their own style. Tracks like Another Night, Its Our Turn and This Love just simply have you reaching for the volume control. This whole album needs to be played at a high level. There is one quieter moment on this album, in the form of One Fine Day. This shows a completely different, softer, side of Leafeater that rears its head sometimes. But punk rock is where their sound lies. And that's a good thing. This album has cemented their claim to be Bradford's Premier band.
