State Champs – Overslept EP

  Here we have a new release from pop punkers, State Champs. Now, to be honest, I’ve sort of strayed away from the ‘new’ pop punk scene recently, but I’m always open to checking out bands that have been getting some praise like these guys have with this EP. Right away, I was unimpressed. The […]

Hit The Lights – “Invicta”

Hit The Lights have been one of the more popular bands in pop punk over the past several years. They burst onto the scene with This Is A Stickup… Don’t Make It A Murder in 2006, which is still considered a favorite by many fans. The first song I heard by these guys was “Bodybag” […]

Such Gold / A Loss For Words Split

Such Gold / A Loss For Words Split

  Two of my favorite “up and coming” bands decided to get together and create a 4 song split (each band contributing 2 new songs). For those unfamiliar with the bands, Such Gold is pop punk with a hardcore edge. Watch their music video “Sycamore” for a general idea of their sound. A Loss For […]

Fireworks - Gospel

Fireworks – “Gospel”

  Fireworks has been my favorite pop punk band for some time now. I got into them in the summer of 2008, starting with their EP, We Are Everywhere, which I still consider to be my favorite EP ever. They really emerged as one of the top bands in the genre with their first full length […]

Pop Punk's Not Dead Tour

Pop Punk’s Not Dead Tour – Minneapolis

I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Minneapolis stop of the Pop Punks Not Dead tour. Months ago when the tour and lineup was announced, I thought to myself: Can a tour really get any better than this? Headlined by veteran pop punkers New Found Glory with support from 4 of the biggest […]

The Copyrights – “North Sentinel Island”

These days, it’s hard to stand out as a straight up punk band. Basically every chord progression has been done to death and it’s hard to write simple melodies that don’t remind you of someone else. While The Copyrights definitely stick to that punk rock formula, they’ve also managed to stick out and become one […]

A Loss For Words – “No Sanctuary”

While getting lost in the shuffle in the resurgence of pop punk over the past few years, A Loss For Words has always been one of my favorites. Their 2009 release, The Kids Can’t Lose, was one of my favorite records of that year, plus the fact that I’ve seen them live 3 times in very […]

This Time Next Year – “Drop Out Of Life”

This Time Next Year has been a fan favorite in the pop punk scene over the past several years. They first released two EPs, A Place For You and The Longest Way Home in 2007 and 2008 respectively. They were both pretty highly regarded in the scene, but fans wanted more. In 2009, they announced […]

The Offseason - "Pride and Progress/Goin' For Broke"

The Offseason – “Pride and Progress/Goin’ For Broke”

Earlier this week I received a package in the mail. When I saw that it was from Barrett Records, I got excited. I had been waiting for a copy of The Offseason’s release entitled Pride and Progress/Goin’ For Broke. I’ve heard lots of great things about this band and was excited to pop it into […]

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. Their last release, a compilation called The Last Thing You Forget was absolutely incredible, and probably one of […]
