Prosevere at the New Daisy Theatre

The brand of commercial hard rock/alt-metal played by young local four-piece band Prosevere has never been exactly my thing, but it's hard to miss the enthusiasm and command with which the band approaches the genre. After their debut EP, Versus, in 2008, the band returns this week with the five-song follow-up, Burn the City, where grinding, crunching guitars set up catchy choruses sometimes leading into flashy solos or growling vocal changes (or both). As a genre calling card, it's a good one, with all five songs seeming to have single potential. Led by energetic, engaging frontman Gary Segars, the band's charisma and radio-friendly sound make them a breakout contender.

Prosevere celebrates the release of Burn the City on Friday, February 25th, at the New Daisy Theatre, with Sore Eyes, Inner 61, Haven Hill, and This Tragic Day. Doors open at 6 p.m. Admission is $10.
