Though part of me wishes they would keep their foot more firmly planted on the distortion pedal, there’s no doubt that Bully In The Hallway belt out a solid slice of rock with some serious potential. With driving guitars reminiscent of that classic Chicago punk rock sound and sweetly tortured vocals a la Murder City Devils, it’s quite clear that this is a band hellbent on creating a name for itself in the competitive rock world of the Windy City. They’ve already made the rounds playing everywhere from the Museum Of Contemporary Art and House of Blues to Elbo Room and Silvie’s Lounge — and seem poised and ready for more audience Bullyin’ in ‘08. Word has it that the band hit the studio in late February, so plan on a new batch of smart, at times melodic and in-your-face rock to come.
