Album Notes
The genre-blending music that Battery Life creates on "Shotgun Loudmouth" is a reflection of its heritage. Here's what it takes to get a band that rockets effortlessly between roots, punk, country, pop, rock and roll:

* Singer/guitarist Paul Almanza from the highly regarded Million Six ("Musically, these guys show up their peers with balls the size of cantaloupes" - Grid magazine) and suburban punk pioneers Mad Parade (" real catchy stuff with the right blend of powerful guitar sound and melodies. " - Flex!).
* Bassist/singer Mike Lawrence from Lucky (alt-country with Wednesday Week refugees), Action Now (Paula Pierce's pre-Pandoras power pop band), Haymaker ("3 punk rawk toe tappers...pretty rad and catchy"- Flipside) as well as Mad Parade.
* Also from Action Now is Scott Hillman, who plays drums informed by Keith Moon and Sandy Nelson.

Battery Life's music (written by Almanza and Lawrence) is aggressively melodic with heartfelt lyrics that are uplifting and inspiring-think in terms of Social Distortion without the cynicism, early Soul Asylum and the first two Rank & File records. The comparisons are only valid in the broadest terms. These musical touchstones are quickly forgotten when "Shotgun Loudmouth" invades your eardrums.

Anchoring all this is a blistering live show that ends in everything from bloody faces to broken instruments.
