Main Line Riders - Shot In The Dark

Houston, Texas based, Main Line Riders is the type of band whose fans go to their concerts and afterwards all hang around, sweaty and smiling, talking about how Main Line Riders is the next great rock band. Can't really blame 'em either...when you see MLR, you get the feeling that you've just discovered something really amazing and special, that you're "in on it" just before the rest of the world catches on. Consider this your only warning: rock-n-roll has returned...not with a whimper, but with a resounding hinge crushing, door smashing bang. As if they were poised and ready to take over the Sunset Strip in the late 80's, Shot In The Dark provides a healthy dose of classic rock jams that never cease to please. With every song employing huge, anthemic hooks, cleverly mixing snarl and attitude, the band has no problems paying homage to their musical rabbis, AC/DC, Hanoi Rocks, Guns-N-Roses, early LA Guns, 70's Kiss, Kix and Skid Row, while appealing to fans of modern day hard rock bands like Vains Of Jenna, Buck Cherry and Poets & Porn Stars. MLR's appeal is in no small part to vocalist, Mikey Mayhem, whose vocals give a nasty attitude and confidence that matches the intensity of the music, not to mention helping the band fulfill (and even exceed) the immense potential of this, their debut release. Shot In The Dark is full of brilliant moments, all held together by heavy harmonic riffs blasting from the guitars. "Throwin' Bones To The Wolves" boasts a guitar solo that would make Stryper's Oz Fox grin. Shot In The Dark is the aural thunderclap that is Main Line Riders. It's an unapologetically anthemic hard rock album, with 9 shout-along, swaggering rockers. Be sure to catch these guys on tour beginning June of 2008.

Get on the Main Line

Formed in early 2006, the Main Line Riders immediately began a process born from a collective desire to bring an older style of hard rock music to an uninformed population. A year later, the group emerged from the process and set about putting the results of that process to tape. Produced, engineered and mixed by Caleb Keiter, the group's 9-song debut is the first true album-rock disc released in more than 20 years. Each and every song is a bona-fide AOR hit. Highly recommended for all Hard Rock and Sleaze Metal fans.

Fast paced unapologetic rock!

Great album! Enough said!
