James Durbin, the man who
brought heavy metal to ‘American Idol’ last season, has
released the new song ‘Stand Up,’ which is featured on
the ‘Official Gameday NFL Music Vol. 2' EP.
It’s quite a stadium-ready
anthem. Not so much in that Durbin could and should fill arenas at
this point, but that this song should be blasted through any and all
baseball stadiums throughout October for the MLB playoffs or at football
arenas until the Super Bowl gets here. It’s adrenalized, fist-pumping
Thunderous, chunky rhythms propel the song and Durbin’s got
total control over that wild voice of his! Durbin attempts to rouse
crowds by singing, “It’s time to see you stand up
/ Let me see your hands up / Want to hear you shout it out / Tell
me that you’re ready to go.” Can’t you just
imagine rows full of fans in ball parks doing the wave to this song?
It’s a big,
bold, riff-fattened anthem, steered down the fast track by the Durb’s
high pitched wail. He’s got the young Rob Halford thing down
pat. Durbin’s rock ‘n’ roll career is a powder keg
and it’s ready to blow, courtesy of ‘Stand Up.’
He’ll will release his debut album via Wind-up Records in November.
