Customer Reviews


I've waited ten years for this album. I must say it was worth the wait. Hopefully it won't take another decade to follow this one up. Now to go find my old united by fate t-shirt and rock it proudly.

Rival Schools where have you been? Read this!

Rival Schools returns some 10 years after united by fate with a very good cd in Pedals. Although not perfect(but what is), this cd is a great refreshing change from over produced trash like nickleback. The song writing is as cool as ever as Walter's voice sounds just as good as it did 10 long years ago. What I love about Rival Schools is you must listen to the entire song to really get it, and appreciate the beauty of their songs. Nothing is as it seems with them, and the sounds they produce are some of the coolest today. A lot of poor radio bands should listen to them as they are as far from mainstream as you can hope for. If you like strange, gloomy at times music, this is your rock band that leaves you feeling like a warm fuzzy inside. I live in Dallas, Tx and must hear the worst radio station on earth, 102.1 the edge, as they play the same garbage each day, and call it new music(rage against the machine, beastie boys, nickleback, red hot chillis to name a very few, and if you like these bands great but they are not new MUSIC!!! This is the new music right here. Small Doses, Racing to red lights, wring it out, paranoid detectives, shot after shot, you should have hung out, and eyes wide open are some of the highlights.."Floating in space, the ghost is out there" sums up their great writing abilities on the ghost is out there. Check this band, and cd out. Good effort boys!


start to finish, this is a perfect album (even the added b-sides). definitely worth the wait.

Born out of a hearty hardcore pedigree, the members of Rival Schools stepped to the plate with a phenomenal history and the qualities that would point towards an amazing future. Singer and guitarist Walter Schreifels began making waves as the guitarist for '80s hardcore pioneers Gorilla Biscuits and then went on to influence the entire post-hardcore movement with his influential work in Quicksand, as well as production for acts like CIV and Hot Water Music. Drummer Sam Siegler has seen almost as...
