A good ol' Rock 'n' Roll album with an exhilarating element of fun scattered throughout.

I was sent this album with the promise from our Reviews Editor that this would "get me up and air-guitaring" – he certainly wasn't wrong!

Seemingly a few years in the making, Anglo-American We Are Harlot (or simply Harlot for short) are a "super-group" of sorts. Though initially viewed as a solo album project, vocalist Danny Worsnop left U.K. Metalcore band Asking Alexandria as it became obvious Harlot was growing into something much more when Worsnop joined forces with former Sebastian Bach guitarist Jeff George and Revolution Renaissance drummer Bruno Agra; bassist Brian Weaver (Silvertide) joined later. Roadrunner Records came on board and Harlot's first ever live performance was 2014's Rock On The Range festival.

Citing Aerosmith and Van Halen as inspirations, Harlot's sound harks back to the glory days of eighties Stadium Rock 'n' Roll but combined with a thoroughly contemporary commercial Pop/Punk appeal that brings to mind the likes of Foo Fighters and The Offspring. It offers a raucous and in-your-face approach that's infused with an insane sense of melody and achieving the perfect balance of heavy and catchy. Worsnop's Metalcore past occasionally resurfaces with old-school grunting and growling, most notably on 'Denial', 'Flying Too Close To The Sun' and the utterly brilliant, riff-driven, blistering Rocker 'One More Night', but these are few and far between and not enough to disrupt the enjoyment. George is also given the green light to shred to his heart's content – which he does in spectacular style but without overplaying his hand.

The Hard Rocking 'Dirty Little Thing', 'Never Turn Back' and 'Love For The Night' rub shoulders comfortably with the more melodic singles 'Dancing On Nails' and 'The One' (the latter accompanied by a great fun video) and the summery sounding 'Easier To Leave', while the raucousness nature of the bulk of the album is offset by 'Someday' and 'I Tried' – two ballads that wouldn't sound out of place on a Hinder album.

A good ol' Rock 'n' Roll album with an exhilarating element of fun scattered throughout, a million miles away from what you would expect from this vocalist. Roadrunner are anticipating big things from this band, it's easy to see why.
