Sure....I guess? Why not. (I don't know their music but I've heard of them before...)

Obviously its way to early to assume anything, but of any bands to come about recently I think they have the best chance of become something very different and special.

One of the more solid rock bands to debut in recent years. Give them another album or two, & see where they stand.

One of the more interesting things about the rock acts, post-2000, will be how any future body of voters grade the bands. I was thinking about it while looking at a baseball show, that talked about how pitchers may no longer be judged by 300 wins in the future. The logic of "250 wins is the new 300" may come into play regarding acts from 2000 onward, in some capacity. They might just set a new curve of sorts, in order to judge these bands properly.

Just listened to their self titled album. Very impressive. New player on the alternative scene.

Hope to see them at Bonnaroo. They would fit in well there.

Saw these guys at Bonnaroo! Was right down front for their set. Boys from Kentucky played before a massive crowd at Which Stage. Lead singer is a freak! Must use 5,000 calories at set. It was fairly hot, around 430 pm, and he comes out in some kind of gold lame top that was probably used in a Star Trek show. Danced & strutted for 3/4 hour in that before ditching it. Had multiple technical difficulties during show that caused them not to be able to play their last song (which I'm sure was 'Always Something', as that was the only hit they hadn't played). Mr. Schultz commented during one of their holdups for the technical issues 'Well, I'm going to fire my entire crew after this set, so I got that going for me'. He crowd surfed multiple times while singing a song and stood on people's shoulders & belted out his hits. After one crowd surfing escapade, he remarked 'for future reference, I don't keep my wallet in my crotch'.

See these guys in concert! IMO, starting their trip to The Hall one day.
