The Honorary Title

If the thought of Jeff Buckley fronting The Promise Ring gives you the good kind of goosebumps, then The Honorary Title is worth your download time — even if you’re on dial-up. Jarrod Gorbel has the vocal acuity of the late-great Buckley and a Rufus Wainwright-esque flair for drama that both merges with and hovers above the bounce and retreat of Aaron Kamstra’s lovely arrangements. Go ahead and sing along silently.

  1. They are going to explode onto the music scene in North America. "Bridge and Tunnel" will be playing on radio stations everywhere in due time.

  2. just saw them at the switchfoot/the honorary title/the format concert and they rocked. like…rocked my socks off. peace.

  3. first saw them on the dive via fuse…they rock! then of course i bought the cd! don’t wait to get it, these guys are gonna be huge ^.^

  4. This is a decent song, although I enjoyed other tracks off 'Anything Else But the Truth' more, particularly 'Revealing Too Much' and 'Snow Day'. I think the CD itself is pretty damn good and definitely worth buying. Some of the songs, however, are too accessible (which is not always a bad thing). But it is inevitable that the mainstream media will get their greedy paws on them, ignore the real talent that shines through, and market Mr.Gorbel off as an 'indie heart-throb.' It's fine to have the majority of the public (who always seem to be in the dark about good music) exposed to music such as this, but the real problems arise when the band begins to comply with the standards of the mainstream industry and end up being a highly popular, yet horribly different version of their original selves.
    But I think these boys can withstand that, eh?

  5. Love these band..I saw them live in west hollywood twice and I just have to say that I appreciate their hard working , attitude and their workds. I hope they keep up the good work and come out with their new cds soon…Will be seeing them again for sure in April.

  6. I <3 Honorary Title! I first saw them on Fuse & couldn't not stop listening to "Bridge & Tunnel". They've also come on Fuse's 'Steven's Untitled Rock Show' & played some songs on there. Great, also seen their latest video (forgot name) but its awesome.

  7. the honorary title is my favorite band ever! Go buy their cd and listen to everythig i once had and cut short! you will fall in love!
