Half Hearted Hero – Whatever

Well, here is my first album review of 2013. This one I was REALLY excited about, as they are arguably my favorite “up and coming” pop punk band right now. I absolutely loved their full length (Defining. Refining) and latest EP (Running Water), so this new release was high on my list of most anticipated […]

Hostage Calm – “Please Remain Calm”

  Hostage Calm’s last album was good, not great. It had some jams on it, such my personal favorites “Ballots/Stones” and “Rebel Fatigues”. However, this album is going to be the one that propels the band to new heights. They’ve always been a band about progression, and it seems as though they’ve found their niche […]

The Offspring – Days Go By

I was very skeptical before I listened to this. The Offspring will probably go down as one of my all-time favorite bands, as not only do they have some of the best early pop punk albums ever, but they paved the way for so many bands after them. However, their musical style and direction has […]

Hawthorne Heights – Hope EP

I absolutely hate the term “emo”, but Hawthorne Heights has always been the poster child for that genre. Throughout most of their discography, you’ll find a lot of dark lyrics and just downright haunting songs… but things seem to take a different turn on this release. I won’t use the word “poppier” to describe it, […]

Pennywise – “All or Nothing”

Pennywise. No, not the clown. I’m talking about one of the most popular and influential punk bands in punk rock. But if you’ve never heard of them, let me give you a little history lesson. They are one of the very first bands credited with starting the whole “it’s cool to listen to punk music […]

No Trigger - Tycoon

No Trigger – “Tycoon”

Back in late 2010, the hardcore punk band No Trigger released this video, announcing that they were getting back together to write a new record. Before this, their last full length album (Caynoneer) takes us all the way back to 2006 so at this point, fans of the band were just dying for new material. […]

The Menzingers - "On The Impossible Past"

The Menzingers – “On The Impossible Past”

The Menzingers are a band I associate with beer, raw, gruff voices, and just plain fun times. A dream tour I just thought of that would actually work: These guys + The Flatliners + Against Me! + The Gaslight Anthem. I’m pretty sure that would be the greatest time of my life. Anyways, onto this […]

Hit the Lights - Invicta

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” […]

Anti-Flag – “The General Strike”

You know, I’ve never really been one for political music. And to be honest, I don’t even agree with a lot of what these guys have to say. But still, Anti-Flag has remained, to this day, as being one of my favorite bands. You can’t NOT appreciate the honesty in their music, and the passion […]

Troubled Coast - I've Been Thinking About Leaving You

Troubled Coast – “I’ve Been Thinking About Leaving You”

Not often to I check out a band I never heard of before and get blown away like this. Troubled Coast is one of those bands. These guys bring me back to when I was first getting into alternative and hardcore punk music. But the difference with this band is how huge-sounding they are. Every […]
