REVIEW: Seaway – ‘All In My Head’ EP

Artist: Seaway
Album: All In My Head
Genre: Pop Punk

I love a good album as much as the next person, but there is something far more exciting about stumbling across an almost perfect EP. When you only have four or five songs to work with, every note of every song matters. These releases can make or break careers, and in the case of Seaway’s latest release it seems an extended play may be just what the band needs in order to reach the next echelon of pop-punk popularity.…

REVIEW: Forever Came Calling – ‘What Matters Most…’

Artist: Forever Came Calling
Album: What Matters Most…
Genre: Pop Rock, Pop-Punk
Label: Pure Noise Records

Forever Came Calling‘s sophomore effort, What Matters Most, is a blistering and dynamic effort of pure emotion — a testimony delivered by a band that deserves to be the next biggest act in pop-punk.

The record could easily be categorized as a form of lost art, a beginning-to-end piece of balanced work that fails to lose momentum or vigor throughout its entire duration. It’s the type of record bands in the scene were producing years ago. It’s not laced with singles and …

REVIEW: State Champs – ‘The Acoustic Things’ EP

Artist: State Champs
Title: The Acoustic Things EP
Label: Pure Noise Records
Genre: Acoustic Pop-Punk

After every solid full-band release comes an internal, unspoken desire for an entirely acoustic follow-up of said solid full-band release. The whole “how could this have sounded differently?” mindset comes to play within the corners of the non-audio engineer’s brain. Whether or not this is actually executed (and executed well, at that) is only a matter of the band’s ability to deliver the same solid content without the help of aggressive percussions and tasteful bass guitar riffs; two of the key elements to a …

Gnarwolves ST

REVIEW: Gnarwolves – ‘Gnarwolves’

Artist: Gnarwolves
Album: Gnarwolves
Label: Pure Noise Records

Let’s be honest, it’s pretty hard for a pop punk band to climb out of the grave that the “Defend Pop Punk” movement has become. A name like Gnarwolves backed up by images of pizza slices and skateboards can either serve as a calling card to invite new listeners into something they already know they’re going to love, or as a warning sign for the bored and weary to stay as far away as possible.

Yet Gnarwolves are more than just another skin-deep act — or at least that’s what one would …
