“Too Little Too Late” marks the return of a part of A Skylit Drive that remained dormant through the band’s underwhelming journey through the city of Adelphia. Reminiscent of the many shining moments of the band’s full-length debut Wires (And The Concept Of Breathing), albeit with a cleaner approach, “Too Little Too Late” displays a less spastic approach than it’s predecessors. Sadly, the band’s first and hopefully last attempt at a concept album resulted in the band being tied up in the story, ultimately leaving musicianship on the backburner. Lucky for fans, the band have returned full circle with the release of their latest single. Perhaps the most notable aspect of this latest effort is the massive improvement on the vocal front. The song finds front man Michael “Jag” Jagmin finally displaying competence vocally, which is a welcome change from the drone shrill that plagued the entirety of Adelphia. Bassist Brian White’s growls, as always, provide the perfect contrast to Jag’s highs and boy they have never sounded so menacing. Contemporaries beware, if “Too Little Too Late” is merely a taste of the greatness that’s to be found on Identity On Fire, the post-hardcore bar just got set a bit higher.

A Skylit Drive is a six-piece post-hardcore band from Lodi/Galt California. They released their first EP, titled She Watched The Sky, with Tragic Hero Records in January 2007 and the follow-up full length album Wires... And the Concept of Breathing on May 20, 2008. Now signed to Fearless Records, the band has released their second full length, Adelphia, on June 9, 2009.
