The Ending Is Just The Beginning Repeating

The biggest band in the land, THE LIVING END return with their new album “THE
ENDING IS JUST THE BEGINNING REPEATING”
“Six albums. Each one, a milestone: The time we thought we were indestructible. The time
we lit a fire under the establishment. The time we wondered if it was all worth it. No.6, if we
put it under the microscope, is the album that hunts down the truth, asks the big questions
and demands answers”. THE ENDING IS JUST THE BEGINNING REPEATING is THE
LIVING END's most honest album yet.
Chris Cheney, Scott Owen and Andy Strachan have always forged their own path, irrespective of passing fads, haircuts, and
any vogue for keytar-wielding debutantes. Their songs require of the listener a social conscience and mosh pit stamina, and
give in return a visceral experience that's flawlessly executed. It's this attitude that's earned the band platinum platitudes.
Winding up the tour cycle that followed 2008's “WHITE NOISE”, Cheney went to New York to buckle down and write, before
the songs were jammed out organically in a South Melbourne rehearsal room. Finally the demos were taken to 301 Studios
in Byron Bay and Chris' Red Door Sounds Studio in Collingwood for a reworking with producer NICK DIDIA — who has put
the Midas touch on records by The Living End-approved Bruce Springsteen and Rage Against the Machine — imported
especially for the occasion from Atlanta. BRENDAN O'BRIEN (Pearl Jam, Powderfinger, AC/DC) took the reigns as mixer.
The results are astonishing.

Performer Notes
  • Australian trio the Living End have been mining the territory between pop-punk and rockabilly for well over a decade now, and their experience shines through in the slick musicianship of their sixth studio album, The Ending Is Just the Beginning Repeating. Opening trio "In the Morning," "Heatwave," and "Machine Gun" kick the album off at a blistering tempo, with echoes of Bay Area heroes Bad Religion and contemporaries Bayside flickering through alongside upright bass runs and wandering guitar licks. Curiously, the album becomes somewhat flat from that point on. Meandering radio ballad "For Another Day" is the first offender, marrying tepid instrumentation with bland, ambiguous lyrics, while "Ride the Wave" and "Resist" offer little more than reverb-soaked guitars and irritating clich?s. "Away from the City" brings back the rockabilly swagger but falls down on a dull chorus melody, and it's only closing tracks "Universe" and "The Ending Is Just the Beginning Repeating" that save the album from becoming a total write-off. The title track (co-written by the Hold Steady's Craig Finn and a wise choice for the lead single) is a particular triumph; with thoughtful lyrics and an instantly memorable hook, it's everything a pop-punk anthem is supposed to be. It's just a shame there aren't more like it. ~ Dave Donnelly
