Review: Abandon Kansas “Abandon Kansas” [EP] - FREE

Abandon Kansas is a modern rock quartet led by powerhouse rock vocalist Jeremy Spring, who sounds a bit like Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) and Damon Johnson (Brother Cane). This new self-titled EP follows another one called “We’re All Going Somewhere”, and even contains two songs from it: “Months And Years” and “Close Your Eyes”. The first two songs, “Heaven Come My Way” and “The Golden State” are from their upcoming album, “Ad Astra Per Aspera” (due March 8).

I would describe the music of Abandon Kansas as moving rock and roll – reflective lyrics, soulful delivery, and thick hooks. “Heaven Come My Way” is an upbeat tune perfect to play to start your day on a positive and inspirational note. “The Golden State” is a slower premonition of a tune centered on California. For those who missed them on the previous EP, the final two tracks are also noteworthy modern rockers. This EP is currently available for FREE on – don’t abandon it.
