Dance Gavin Dance will always hold a special place in my heart. Downtown Battle Mountain I was an explosive screamer and really showed what Jonny Craig is capable of, shenanigans...

Get in on the post-hardcore, screamo scene before the bands decide to channel their music more melodically, and more "intuitively." One of my friends jested as we sat listening...

First off, this isn't a slam review. I give everything a fair chance (Patrick Stump, now and forever). But honestly, please tell me how a label like Epitaph associates itself...

Some albums register on a level that stays with you for decades. For a lifetime, in fact. Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation is one of those for me. I've touted it up here...

From New Found Glory to Marilyn Manson. From Further Seems Forever to Jack Off Jill. Like Amanda Jones, South Florida is no minor leaguer, especially when it comes to turning out...

Trust Fall’s debut LP Secret Keeper opens up with a sound that is doomier than any of their other works. The album leans more towards the style of their split with Thanks than...

Kyle Durfey's always written gut-wrenching and emotionally turbulent songs to cope with his father's death. He's given me some of my most connective tunes to date. In essence...

Xerxes showed immense potential in the past. Our Home Is a Deathbed was one of 2012's more underrated records and whatever they put out after (in small doses I might add) seemed...

The first track to Louisville, KY's XERXES sophomore album Collision Blonde starts where the A side to their Would you understand? 7-inch from last year ends. Literally. If you...

About thirty seconds into From Parts Unknown, the seventh full-length from Buffalo hardcore outfit Every Time I Die, it's obvious that this is not the album expected from such...

The album’s title was initially inspired by a term used by wrestlers to increase their mystique, From Parts Unknown ultimately references the more hopeful mood that creeped into...

Goodtime Boys have always been one of the underdogs at Bridge 9 in my opinion, which doesn't take away from the music they made. They were always decent but were missing something...

Frameworks is a band who has blown us away constantly and Loom will do just that to you. Produced by Jack Shirley, these 11 tracks should be listened from start to finish, then...

Punk News review

I love it when a band comes at you with a bold, daring, zero-fucks-given attitude. Frameworks is just that. With Gainesville churning out pop-punk, indie and emo acts, it's a nice...

The Used are a polarizing band. Bert McCracken usually finds himself writing about love, drugs and a bunch of things you'd think an adult would be able to sift through a little...

What It Is To Burn was one of my high-school records that would rarely leave the player. I distinctly recall Finch, Taproot and Glassjaw being the thing of dreams back then - the...

The Michigan post-hardcore band serve up a concept album about the collapse of a co-habiting couple

The Line of Best Fit review

La Dispute's third record may tread a similar path, but also represents a pinnacle of the sound the Michigan band have been toiling at for a decade.

The success of A Day To Remember's new album, Common Courtesy, is an interesting reflection of the music industry's current state. Following a lengthy battle with Victory Records...

When it comes to Dance Gavin Dance, the argument, more often than not, boils down to your preference for whichever vocalist they're employing. That's the gist of most fans from my...

Deaf Havana formed in 2005 while the members were still in college. After two successful U.K. releases, the band is nwo ready to make an impact across the pond. Old Souls will be...

Insound review
14.01.14

Expressionistic, sophisticated, evolved, overflowing, pitch-black. Just a few words, and a desperate attempt to properly approach Animale(s) , the fifth full-length record from...

Punk News review
15.11.13

When looking at screamo, post-hardcore and black metal, one probably thinks that meshing them all into one may be a difficult balancing act. Listening to so many bands try this, I...

XLR8R review

At this point in his young career, it's probably not worth trying to categorize New York City's Gobby; after all, his output to date has exuded such an array of influences that...

Rise Records gets its fill of melodic, easygoing pop-punk from A Loss For Words. On 2011's Sanctuary, it was apparent that there was something unexplored that if unleashed, could...
