The Future Freaks Me Out
Don't Call it a Comeback

Anyone who knows me knows I have been preaching this band for about the past year. Their EP blew me away. Some of the catchiest songs I have heard, think Get Up Kids only more rock. Those 5 songs stayed in constant rotation in my CD player until the release of their first full length came out a while after. I've been impressed with EPs before only to buy the full length and be disappointed because of lack of energy, but MCS is definitely an exception to the case. The full length is even better than the EP. Catchier tunes, better lyrics, and most importantly more than 5 songs. "The Future Freaks Me Out" is easily my favorite track on the CD, but every track is amazing. You can order the EP from http://www.interpunk.com/ and get the full length from their website. If you're still hungry for more MCS just be patient. They recently recorded new versions of "Throwdown," "Capitol H," and "Back to the Beat" for a split release with Shatzi on Redemption Records
