CD Review: Transit Wants You To "Listen" To Their Rise Records Debut

Boston rockers Transit are preparing to release their Rise Records debut entitled "Listen & Forgive." The band evolved from their punk rock beginnings to a more polished alternative, indie rock band and the new album reflects that.

The album starts off with the punk rock drumbeat of "You Can't Miss It," but swiftly moves to a more mainstream alternative rock sound as in "Asleep At The Wheel." Transit show their roots in the up-tempo punk-style of "Cutting Corners," which actually shows more of an edge to the band's sound then that of "I Think I Know You" which just sounds too polished. The mainstream rock sound of "Don't Make A Sound" and "Over Your Head" should give Transit the popularity that this album deserves.

Transit will be on tour with Bayside, Saves The Day and I Am The Avalanche until mid-November. Then the band takes off for Europe for the remainder of the year. The new album will be available October 4. For more information, please visit the band's myspace page (
