Album Review

Nashville, TN-based post-grunge/emo/alternative outfit Framing Hanley’s sophomore effort is a less metallic beast than 2008’s The Moment, but what Promise to Burn lacks in speed it more than makes up for in melodic angst. Anthemic and mostly miserable, the album sports its fair share of open highway, “nobody understands me/can’t we make this work” pity jams, but when they are as catchy and streamlined as “War Zone,” “You Stupid Girl,” and “Back to Go Again,” it’s easy to forget you're listening to some dude read from his tenth grade diary.

Long Awaited

I anxiously awaited this release. I think the album delivers in a way that is totally unexpected. While it veers from the sound of their debut, this sophomore effort is filled with relatable, deeper songs. This band is deserving of a much bigger following and a larger commercial success. A Promise to Burn will give them that opportunity to break through and gain a new following. I particularly love the tracks WarZone and Photographs and Gasoline. The ending to Photographs and Gasoline is freaking amazing. The entire album is epic. Regardless of whether or not you like The Moment better than this, Framing Hanley does not disappoint. And they are one of those great bands that not only deliver great recordings, but they are also absolutely amazing live. I love this album!


I've been a huge Framing Hanley fan, before the whole Lollipop scene. I've never missed a show when they were in town and I listened to the first album religeously! "A Promise to Burn" has no balls to it. It seems That FH has gotten sucked into the void of crappy pop music on this album, wanting to get more mainsteam radio time for fame, then sticking to the sound that got them their TRUE fan base. I am sad to say that I think I'll skip out on their next show when they come around. All I have to say it that although Lollipop was a cool song, I knew that was going to be the beginning of the end of a band that has so much potential. Framing Hanley, I hope you guys go back to the roots of your first album, cause A Promise to Burn is not Framing Hanley.


Every penny in today's music selection. Framing hanley is so badass.

Pretty faces was worth the wait to be recorded.

Embers Fade retreated to Vest's basement to write songs and create demo records, which they later used to solicit help from former Creed bassist Brett Hestla. Impressed...
