The Expendables – One More Night

Note: The original video is no longer available. This official audio version has replaced it:

I fell instantly in love with One More Night from The Expendables which appears on the band’s 2007 self-titled long-player. It’s not a flawless performance, but the imperfections in the vocal delivery make it feel more real and more heart-felt. Don’t get me wrong, their is nothing unpleasing in the vocals, there is just a rawness, an edginess an emotional honest delivery. 

Playing a blend of folkish surf-rock and full on harmonic rock, The Expendables have been making great music since 1997. During the first seven years of their existence as a band, they created three long-players (No Time To Worry, 2000, Open Container, 2001 and Gettin’ Filthy, 2004) without the benefit of a label, supported only by the band’s own tireless touring and performance schedules while gaining a following up and down the California coast. The Expendables signed on to Stoopid Records, an independent label founded by fellow performers Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty of Slightly Stoopid in 2007. This relationship fostered the self-titled long player from which One More Night comes and 2010’s Prove It. The Expendables released their sixth long-player, Gone Soft, in 2012, apparently just digitally (see i-Tunes link below).

Check out this amazing, resilient and talented band, by visiting their web site now, and consider a purchase of one of their great long-players. All of their physical CD’s are available for a lousy $10 from their store link and are chuck full of music or you can purchase all digitally from i-tunes.
