    On their third full-length, HERESY & THE HOTEL CHOIR, Milwaukee's Maritime hit their stride with a blast of pop-punk tunesmanship that updates singer-guitarist Davey Von Bohlen's same work with emo pioneers the Promise Ring, adding fuzzier distortion and Strokes-style minimalism. All second acts in emo-life should be this catchy, danceable, and confident.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.120) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he chiming one-two punch of 'Peril' and 'Pearl'...recall LIFES RICH PAGEANT-era R.E.M."
    Alternative Press (p.160) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Von Bohlen has once again hit his stride as a songwriter....[With] more expansive songs that are upbeat and even borderline aggressive."
    Magnet (p.99) - "[With] guitars stabbing and chiming through songs that are as melodic as they are muscular."
    Kerrang (Magazine) (p.49) - "These are some subversive elder statesmen."
