Now Hear Diss: The Millions

Chicago's powerpoppin’ metallists The Millions have minted a hard-driving followup to their debut album, Million Dollar Rock. In Disrespectfully Yours, due to drop this Tuesday, the band fashion song after song of high energy rock and roll – yes, I said rock and roll – that readily reflects their disparate influences: The Wildhearts, Mötley Crüe, Sugarcult, Marvelous 3, Kiss, Tsar, Butch Walker, Cheap Trick, The Darkness, Sum 41, and Velvet Revolver. Guitar flash and lightning drum fills quickly alert you to the fact that this is not precisely your pop’s pop – though he'd be shaking the Spandex and bobbing the bill-up ball cap to channel the Crüe and the Trick. Anyway, I’m grateful to Matty Favaza of Curly Red PR and Chicago’s fabulous The Krinkles for the headsup and permission to post the title cut and one other from the new, highly entertaining album. Flick your Bics, poppers.
