Matt Mays – Coyote (Sonic / Warner Music Canada)

It has been a long time since we’ve heard new music from Halifax’s Matt Mays; a really long time. Thankfully his newest record Coyote sounds as though Mays hasn’t missed a beat in the four-plus years since his last record Terminal Romance. Mays has built his reputation on writing solid rock n roll songs and holds true to that vision here, writing arena-ready anthems like first single Take It On Faith and Drop The Bombs with startling ease.
