If you ask frontman Ciaran O’Reilly, there are three things a man needs to make it in this life…Strength, fight and hunger. It’s those truths that push The Petty Saints. The San Diego quartet delivers earnest working class anthems, with the heart of the Boss and the scrappiness of Strummer. Ciaran’s lyrics weave tales of heartache, triumph and the longing for more than what the 9-5 grind of the working man has to offer. Added with guitarist Brett Reeves’ soaring leads, bassist Dan Rucker’s booming and intricately laced lines, and the thunder of drummer Chaz Riley’s backbeat the band packs a solid left hook and paints an honest portrait of the “everyman.”
