Bands You Need To Know- Run, Forever

Run ForeverThere really isn’t a good reason why Run, Forever shouldn’t already be your favorite new band. The Pittsburgh, PA-based trio has found their stride playing tunes that blend the folk-rock sounds of early Against Me! and The Sidekicks’ ‘90s emo-pop homage to create a sound that should be welcoming to anyone that appreciates anything that falls under the blanket term of punk music. The band’s debut full-length The Devil, And The Death, and Me is beautifully morbid and insanely poppy, and their recently released split 7” with Atlanta’s The Wild takes from the most intense, driving sounds of their full length and turns it up a notch. If you want to check out a band that in a couple months/years will have you can saying “I knew about this band before they got huge,” then go listen to Run, Forever pronto. A band this good cannot go unnoticed for very long.

Bands You Need To Know- Turnover

Demo, Shows, Record, Tour. Turnover has made it through the gauntlet of goals that claims the lives of so many other bands. With a sense of community and lack of bitterness for the world, these barely legal VA beachers are in the mindset of a fully developed idea. This is very apparent on their S/T debut forBroken Rim Recs. A 5 song EP about uncertainty of the real world and the girls that rule it, these songs speak to both pop punk and hardcore kids alike. Keeping the new wave of melodic punk alive while still contending with bands like Crime In StereoTitle Fight, and Protagonist these kids are coming up! Before clenching a couple high school diplomas, Turnover plan on going out on a couple weekend benders as well as a three week winter tour. A Split LP is also on the horizon and can be expected early next year. Its hard to say where these kids will end up after gaining legal status but, its always mind blowing to see when such a young group of friends can get it together and be on the same page.


Bands You Need to Know- Iron Chic

Have you recently spent some time in Tampa, Gainesville or Chicago? Did your time in these cities include attending punk shows and visiting dive bars?

In short, Dan Sapp is a man who likes good bands and knows how to party. It was Dan Sapp who told me to check out Iron Chic. Dan Sapp told me about an upcoming show they were playing and you know what I did? I fucked up and didn’t see them.

Bands You Need to Know- We Were Skeletons

If Ampere decided to find some middle-ground between having a regular tempo and no discernible tempo at all, the result might have been remarkably similar to We Were Skeletons, a chaotic three-piece screamo band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The band adds a mathy twist to many of their songs, and it’s always smartly integrated, briskly played, and typically utilized as a series of transitions into angry, full-on blasts or subdued moments of restraint. Dual vocals often overlap in a tag-team manner reminiscent of early Twelve Hour Turn.
