Rushing to the shops


READING'S The Rushing release their debut this Monday that should have hard rockers rushing to the shops.
Summon The Heroes, as the name implies, has a feel of the classics about it - most obvious points of reference are Pearl Jam, Metallica and Our Lady Peace, and Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins and Queens Of The Stoneage are all cited by the band themselves.
However the album does raise itself above simple homage.
Here huge sounding hard rock numbers abound, that make up for what they may lack in killer hooks with stadium-filling ambition.
A straight rock album, Summon The Heroes goes straight for its target, and hits.
