The Modern Medieval is the sound of a band that’s fiercely opposed to doing things by halves. The album features ten songs that defy conventional pop-rock formula while doing nothing to dampen their anthemic potential.Music Feeds

This is the sound of a band whose members have thrown down the gauntlet to each other…  to create a towering edifice of song that is held together with crackling energy.  The songs on The Modern Medieval push and pull internally and up against each other as if they might simultaneously implode and explode.  There’s enough combustion on this album that you can sense its tang as you listen. The Modern Medieval is a fecund, sumptuous buffet for lovers of Something For Kate that is sure to win them new listeners- Around The Sound
