Free Download:Davey Jone’s Locker-Healthy People Prepare To Die

Davey Jones Locker Healthy People Prepare To Die

So Davey Jone’s Locker is this wild Pop Rock/Screamo/Progressive Rock band from Norway. I first heard about them over at Indie Vision Music, and I was impressed by their ability to keep things very melodic while keeping it very out of control. They arnt as hard to listen to as I am making them out to be, but they definitely have alot of energy element behind them. The best way to try to describe them was if Panic At The Disco and Fall Out Boy were all in the same band. You have the weird, off the wall quirkiness of Panic, and Fall Out Boy‘s energy. There I tried.

Healthy People People Prepare to die is the band’s first EP from 2005. While it is defiantly a less refined version of what the band is today, it has some killer songs, and properly showcases a band that has something special. Oh yea, and its free….

For fans of: Panic At The Disco, Motion City Soundtrack, earlier Relient K
