    Best New Band. Period. They are 18-20 yrs old just got a record label. Just heard them Monday on the radio. And I'm thinking who the Hell is this. Amazing. Sorry I do not know how to post videos. If someone could. I appreciate. "Highway" song and "Safari"

    The lead singer sounds a lot like Robert Plant

    Don't hardly ever listen to anything but the local oldies station and have not listened to much of the "new" music. I have to say these kids defiantly have a old school rock look and sound. I like it.

    I've been following them for a while now, they are definitely old-school with their sound, but its a sound thats much needed IMO. I started telling friends about them a while ago when I stumbled across some videos of them live in some deep dark corner of the interwebs. Told everyone who'd listen that these guys were going to be the next big thing in rock ,and it appears they inching closer to just that. They played in Cincy about a month or so ago and I thought about going. Show sold out in about ten minutes and tickets hit the secondary market for over 10x face value. I'd say the secrets out.

    Here's my personal favorite, and its them doing it live no less.

    I love them, definitely sound like Zeppelin. Also check out Highly Suspect, Kings of Leon, Volbeat, heck even Billy Idol's new stuff.

    First time I heard them A couple weeks ago I thought someone had released some Led Zeppelin unrecorded stuff.It was definitely Robert Plant in my sound.

    The best part is that these guys are all cool in real life. All four of them were students in my English class, and they DEFINITELY respect their roots. We had conversations about the old stuff almost every day. Nice kids and I certainly hope they make it! It looks like they're on their way.

    Good to hear for a change, somebody new that can play their instruments.
    Guitars reminded me of ZZTop a little bit, not quite Billy Gibbons yet but better than most.

    I like em! When I first heard them on the radio I thought they had a led Zeppelin sound too. Good to hear a new band with good musical sound and talent.

    Yea!! The world needs more young rockers! I love rock, but damn I’m getting tired of listening to the dinosaurs while waiting for their replacements.
    I like them!

    Well Well! I thought I'd be turning it off with 10 seconds but man, I just couldn't. Finally, musicians that did something about the inability of others for so long to create something remotely as good as so many hugely successful bands of the 70s did. I hope they get better and better.
    No wonder I love V8Buick so much. Thanks for posting scubasteve455

    There's the funny thing - Plant was 20 when Led Zeppelin formed in 1968. At least these guys had Zeppelin to get their inspiration from.
