ALBUM REVIEW: Grumpster – Grumpster

Contrary to popular belief, Pop Punk and Emo are far from dead and buried. There are tons of true-school cool pocket scenes all over with great bands and fans supporting the hell out of them. One of best bands that have come from the underground recently to earn props is Grumpster from Oakland. Always a legendary place for Punk (thank you East Bay scene, 924 Gilman Street), but has had more than a few killer bands of late too. Continue reading

ALBUM REVIEW: Neck Deep – Neck Deep

There’s no question about it; if you follow modern pop punk, you know what a massive influence Neck Deep has had on the scene for the past decade. Ever since they made Life’s Not Out To Get You, one of the best pop punk albums of the 2010s (dare I say, of all time?), the British rockers have been a prominent staple in pop punk history.

ALBUM REVIEW: Tijuana Bibles – Free Milk

Tijuana Bibles play an explosive style of rowdy post-punk flavored rock. The Glasgow-based band takes you back to a time when punk sprang from the seedy intersections of rock n’ roll in the early seventies. These guys are forward-thinking and time and dedication went into Free Milk (Button Up Records). It is thought out from a production and songwriting standpoint without feeling like the danger was edited out in the mix. Continue reading

ALBUM REVIEW: Atreyu – The Beautiful Dark of Life

With music festivals leaning into the resurfacing of Myspace-era nostalgia, it is not surprising these guys have a new album out. Atreyu’s newest effort The Beautiful Dark of Life (Spinefarm Records) not only revives the head-banging brand of emo your “top 8” friends were once into, but it picks up where they left off with 2021’s Baptized. Continue reading
