Style: Hard rock; compare to P.O.D., Project 86, Underoath

Top tracks: "There Must Be Something in the Water," "Withering," "Our Love Saves Us"

After a four-year hiatus, Blindside returns with a new record label and energized approach to its already aggressive blend of alternative rock and hardcore.

Amidst that onslaught is a more mature outlook on life, including thoughtful musings on family and fatherhood.
