Piano driven alternative rock and grunge tendencies makes a perfect formula if you ask Abandon Kansas, their new album "Ad astra per aspera" is a real nice combination of atmospheric rock and Chris Cornell-like vocals. Their debut "You build a wall, I´ll build a ladder" from 2008 was quite impressive and the band doesnt disappoint with the new album either, if you want a taste of what this band is all about, you can download a free 4 song EP on Amazon featuring 2 tracks off the new album along with 2 non album tracks. This is great music ,dear friends, just listen to "Heaven come my way" or "Liar". Songs made for the arenas.
