“….BNL proved it can still thrill. Ed Robertson (vocals, guitar), Kevin Hearn (keyboards), Tyler Stewart (drums) and Jim Creeggan (bass) remain exceptional players, providing plenty of muscle and silliness to its catchy, pop songs." - Boston Herald

The band's first Vanguard release marked their first top ten debut since 2003 and fourth top ten debut overall. The Huffington Post cited “…on the just-released Grinning Streak, BNL sound as fresh and focused as they did in their late-'90s heyday. A collection of infectious melodies, clever lyrics and hopeful sentiments, Grinning Streak brims with the kind of playful energy that's always been the band's best asset.”Thealbum’s breakout success showcases the new single Odds Are, which shot to #2 on the iTunes Rock Songs Chart. The band recently performed the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. You can view the performance here and check out the lyric video here.
