Onward Soldiers CD release, Hammer No More the Fingers

When: Thu., Jan. 26, 9 p.m. 2012

Wilmington's Onward, Soldiers are quickly distinguishing themselves as one of the more restless rock acts in the state. Their 2010 debut, Ghosts in this Town, showed them to be an amped-up Southern rock outfit, pairing Avett Brothers-inspired rave-ups with swampy Creedence Clearwater Revival riffs. The new follow-up, Monsters, alters their palette considerably. It's a dark, mercurial ride, shifting from twisted Tom Waits folk rock to bouncy piano ballads and on to slide-powered honky-tonk. It's a tad scattershot, but their mastery of multiple styles is impressive. Hammer No More the Fingers opens. —Jordan Lawrence
