Title Fight - Shed

Title Fight – “Shed”

Title Fight is a pop punk/indie/hardcore band from Kingston, PA. Over the past few years they have absolutely blown up in the scene, which is even more impressive considering these guys are now barely into their 20’s.

Banner Pilot - Heart Beats Pacific

Banner Pilot – “Heart Beats Pacific”

Banner Pilot is a punk band from Minneapolis, MN. Midwestern punk bands always have a place in my heart, and add these guys to the list. They remind me a lot of The Lawrence Arms (Chicago), with raw vocals and music that doesn’t let up. This is their third full length release, the others being […]

Restore - Wanderer

Restore – “Wanderer”

Restore is a post-hardcore band from the Chicago area. Having no idea what to expect, this album immediately got my attention from the get go. My ears were immediately under attack the second “Blinded” began. Excellent vocals and heavy, heavy guitars. But they also maintain that very melodic aspect, which usually is the deciding factor if I […]

Late In The Playoffs is a  pop-rock band that hails from Chicago, IL. I was very excited when I was asked to review their recently released an EP titled “Everything I Know”.

Transit - Listen and Forgive

Transit – “Listen & Forgive”

In the recent emergence of the pop punk scene over the past few years, Transit has stuck out. And being from Boston, a city known for churning out tons of punk and hardcore bands all time, that’s not an easy thing to do. Rarely do you see a band progress THIS much from album to […]

New Found Glory - Radiosurgery

New Found Glory – “Radiosurgery”

It’s weird to think of New Found Glory as “veterans” of pop punk. I’ve been listening to them for over a decade now, which actually makes me feel old. I saw them live in 2001 (still the only time I’ve seen them live, but I do plan on hitting up their headlining tour, Pop Punk’s […]
