Flee the Seen's just-released debut full-length, Doubt Becomes the New Addiction, opens with the 45-second track "Celebrate the Static," all air-raid guitars and aggravated-banshee wails. Its live sets often start with the same song, during which band members jerk their bodies in a violent yet austerely angular manner, like possessed androids. After the initial jolt, Doubt delivers ten uniquely melodic, uniformly hopeful hardcore tunes, with singers Kim Anderson and R.L. Brooks swapping screamed encouragements. Onstage, the intensity never wavers, because the band's constant motion (especially Brooks' unhinged guitar-slinging) ensures even its catchiest, sweetest-natured songs get sweaty.
