SoCal pop-punk outfit Unwritten Law fired longtime guitarist Rob Brewer final week following an onstage fracas that left frontman Scott Russo with one much less tooth. They may potentially have been accused of failing to strike whilst the iron was hit, leaving it till 2002 to return with a fourth album – ‘Elva’ – but the time they spent realigning their punk rock sound, making it more accessible and hard rock-oriented, paid dividends as they made TV appearances and saw their single ‘Seein’ Red’ high the US modern rock charts.
Pat “PK” Kim, previously of Sprung Monkey , joined as their new permanent bass participant and the band launched into the Vans Warped Tour , which took them throughout North America , Europe , and Australia In Australia the band developed an enthusiastic and dedicated following, and they might return there over the subsequent few years and release several singles and dwell recordings exclusive to the nation.
Russo does not have fairly the same vitality on stage as he did in Unwritten Legislation’s heyday, but tonight the group is doing all of the work for him. Unwritten Law spent much of 2006 recording a “better of” album entitled The Hit Listing , which was released on January 2, 2007 by Abydos Information.
In 2003 the band was invited by VH1 to film an episode of the stay acoustic sequence Music in High Places The invitation occurred considerably by accident, as the station was hoping to draw Jimmy Eat World but contacted Unwritten Law’s management by mistake.
