Rob Gore (frontman): “The thing I value most in music is when an album
expresses some sort of pain or frustration, or hope that I also feel. I hope
this album makes people feel like something within themselves is reflected
in the wider world, and I hope that makes them feel less alone.”

CLASH Magazine says:” ‘Great American Painting’ is a record that is strongest for its instrumentation, featuring The Districts’ typical cross-streams of guitars that amply lamenting vocals, intriguing listeners by making reference to social issues within America. The Districts paint a Great American Painting that taps its toes in the pool of social justice without feeling overbearing or holding the holier-than-thou attitude we’ve come to know of some rock bands’ reinventions.” Full review here. Score: 7/10.

Turn Up The Volume: I love this band. They proved over and over again that they can write sonic anthems with big sentiments and big guitar-driven orchestration, and they do
it again here. With a more refined sound now – think Band Of Horses – they’ve constructed several tunes where riffs, hooks and licks fall into place like pieces of a puzzle. Touchdown!
