Fans can expect a more cohesive sound from Plunge, a young rock band scheduled to perform north of Boonsboro on Friday.

The five twentysomethings from the Timonium, Md., area are scheduled to perform with The Grilled Lincolns at Stinger's Sports Pub & Grill.

The band has just finished recording tracks for its second full-length album, "SuperHuman," which is scheduled for release next year.

The rockers are now sifting through more than 50 new songs, trying to determine which to keep for the new record, said the band's frontman Mike Ruocco.

"If it was my choice, we'd cut a 50-song record," said Ruocco, 23.

Finding a musical focus has become easier, Ruocco said, since the band formed in 1995. Ruocco said prior Plunge albums - the group's six-song EP "Understand" (2000) and full-length "Hometown Hero" (2004) - were disjointed, ranging from pop-punk to "Top 40-ish."


He described the band's current sound as "American rock 'n' roll, where Aerosmith meets Bon Jovi meets Plunge."

The band's MySpace page has leaked songs from the to-be-released "SuperHuman" (the address: Fans can view photos of past shows at Plunge's homepage,
