Pittsburgh pop-punk trio Eternal Boy have recently launched a Kickstarter to fund their untitled, upcoming album.

The album in its entirety is rad. It has all of the right elements of nostalgia as well as the band's influences coupled with their own sound and persona.

THE WORLD OVER's has music history carved into their core as it is lead by Tiaday Ball, granddaughter of Ernie Ball (ya, that same one.)

Pop-punk/easy-core at its best. I've said it before in the past, and I'll say it again, I'm a huge sucker for synth and vocal harmony and they nail it.

Together for less than a year, the Liverpool, UK quintet OVERSET dives head first into the scene with their debut EP "Waiting for the Rain to Stop."
