This album is full of heartfelt lyrics, melodic riffs, and bouncy, upbeat pop-punk beats. The album is reminiscent of early to mid-2000's pop-punk bands like Boys Like Girls, All American Rejects with a splash of the emo-ness of Dashboard Confessional thrown in for...

With over a decade of touring and albums under their belt, as well as adding jobs and fatherhood to the mix, the seasoned trio shows no signs in letting up anytime soon recently opening up for the likes of newcomers to the punk rock world The Masked Intruders.

Their first single WEST COAST GIRLS is reminiscent of the early 2000's Alkaline Trio where at points in the tune you almost mistaken lead singer Andy for Matt Skiba. Combine that with the grit of indie punk rock artists like Elvis Costello, Billy Bragg and earlier...
