Summer Years Debuts New Single, ‘The Picture You Paint,’ Companion Video

Pop punk band Summer Years debuted its new single and companion video this week.

The band premiered its new single, ‘The Picture You Paint‘ and its companion video Friday. The single is the second single from the band’s forthcoming EP, You Can’t Live There Forever. The band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘This Light‘ June 15. The EP’s official release date is under consideration.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘The Picture You Paint’ is a catchy, upbeat composition. It will appeal to fans of works from bands, such as Blink-182, All Time Low, and New Found Glory.

The lyrical theme featured in the new single delivers a contemplative message, which band member Mike Liorti discussed in a prepared statement.

“The Picture You Paint’s’ overall premise is dealing with doubt,” said Liorti. “As musicians, we kinda live a life of constant Show & Tell to our fans, friends, and family. These days, especially, even the most passionate/understanding supporters & teammates can quickly lose touch of the artists’ vision/potential and basically dismiss them entirely. The smallest comment/action of doubt can be very potent and contagious (sometimes even making its way into the artists’ mind), so the song is coming from a Relic/Lifer’s evolved mindset of understanding the bliss/oasis that comes from creating art for nobody but themselves and letting the dominoes fall as they may.”

Additionally, Liorti talked about the song’s video in the statement.

“The video is a compilation of the post-pandemic live shows we’ve been so honored and lucky to play and capture thanks to the help of our extremely supportive local scene,” he said.

Summer Years Offers Message Of Hope In New Single, Video

Courtesy: ENCI Records

Pop punk band Summer Years is offering a message of hope in its new single.

The band premiered its new single, ‘This Light‘ and its companion video last month through ENCI Records. The song is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming EP, You Can’t Live There Forever. The EP’s official release date is under consideration.

Front man Nick Lanari talked about the the EP’s creation during a recent interview.

“Moving forward with a project like this was intimidating because there was no clear future set before us, no shows or tours to work towards or any inkling of what the future of the music industry will be like,” said Lanari. “It was just us in there getting it done with a lot of uncertainty in our future. It was really cathartic at the same time because we felt really fortunate to be able to do what we love during these times and to be able to be creative and expressive is a healing force.  The word perseverance really comes to mind with this EP, and it’s really fitting for walking through the last year and a half.”

The song’s musical arrangement is a catchy, upbeat composition whose melodies and vocal delivery style lend themselves to comparison to works from bands, such as All Time Low, New Found Glory, and others of that ilk.

The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement reminds audiences that they can make good things happen in their lives and to not give up, no matter what.

Lanari additionally discussed this detail during the noted interview.

‘This Light’ is about the idea that it’s not too late to pursue what you have always dreamed of, and battling the idea of ‘I’ll start working toward it tomorrow’ but tomorrow never seems to come,” he said. “Live your best life now. Today. Find your way to thrive. Failure is not eternal, pain is not eternal, your past doesn’t define you, you can’t live there forever.”

The video for ‘This Light’ pairs footage of the band performing its new single in what resembles a rehearsal space and footage of people (including the band) enjoying some time on a beach and its boardwalk.

Lanari also talked about the video during his interview.

“We filmed some drone shots at the very end of the day, and none other than Tom Delonge drove by us in his big Ford Raptor in Encinitas,” he said. “It was epic. A good omen even. We just wanted to kind of say, “Hey this is who we are, and this is what our world is like. This is Summer Years.” and I think we captured that really well.”

Chaser’s New LP Is A Real Contender For Any Critic’s Year-End “Best Of” Lists

Courtesy: Thousand Islands Records/Soundspeed Records/SBAM Records/Pee Records

Less than a year after releasing its latest studio recording, Look Alive, surf punk rock band Chaser is scheduled to return with another, longer record this week.  The band is scheduled to release its new album Dreamers Thursday through Thousand Islands Records/Soundspeed Records/SBAM Records/Pee Records.  The 13-song record is a presentation that will appeal widely among the band’s established audience base and to surf and pop punk fans alike.  That is proven in part through the recording’s musical arrangements.  They will be discussed shortly.  The lyrical content that accompanies the record’s musical arrangements play into the album’s appeal in its own way.  It will be discussed a little later.  The album’s production puts the finishing touch to its presentation and will also be discussed later.  When it is considered with the record’s overall content, the production in whole becomes a record that is certain to appeal to lots of listeners.

Chaser’s new forthcoming album Dreamers is a powerful new recording that will appeal widely to punk fans in general.  That is proven from beginning to end of its 38-minute presentation.  The appeal is due in part to the album’s featured musical arrangements.  The arrangements are important to note because while Chaser is generally classified as a surf punk style band, the arrangements featured here also exhibit some pop punk influence.  The surf punk influence is evident right from the album’s outset in ‘Fight of Our Lives.  However, it does not take long for the noted pop punk influence to come into play.  It shows up in the album’s third entry, ‘Good Times.’  The arrangement here immediately lends itself to comparison to pop punk acts, such as New Found Glory, All Time Low, and Sum 41 to a slightly lesser degree.  That is made clear through the harmonies and melodies in the pairing of the bass and guitar, and the catchy melodies in the vocals.  The stylistic approach changes just enough from one song to the next, to ensure listeners remain engaged and entertained.  The energy never lets off too much from one song to the next, either.  The whole makes the record’s musical content (and its related sequencing) a strong starting point to the record’s presentation.  It is just one of the elements that makes Dreamers a positive new offering from Chaser, too.  The lyrical content that accompanies the album’s musical arrangements adds to the record’s appeal in its own way.

The lyrical content featured in Dreamers because of its variety.  Some of the lyrical themes featured in this album are familiar social commentaries presented in easily accessible fashion.  Other content is meant to uplift listeners.  Case in point is the theme of the album’s title track.  The band explained the concept within ‘Dreamers’ in a prepared statement.  The statement reads in regards to the song’s lyrical theme, “It’s a dedication to those who have persevered through personal struggles and misfortune to continue chasing their dreams. Influenced by our loved ones, it’s an appreciation of how much they have inspired us to grow and to do better in our own lives to keep a positive perspective.”  That is evidenced right from the song’s outset which states, “No one said life would be fair/Could only promise I’ll be there/Through the thick and then/With God as my witness/Testament of bravery/Redefining tragedy/Despite the odds/We’re never giving in/You taught us not to be afraid/You proved that love would never fade/The answer was always your gift…I hope that every day you choose to live.”  That powerful lead statement in itself is certain to resonate with any listener.  The same can be said of the song’s second verse, which states, “Through the darkness you have grown/Conquering the world you know/Traveled on the roads with nothing but your faith/Searching for your destiny/Chasing all your wildest dreams…And now we’re out here on our own…I hope every day you choose to live.”  Not all of the lyrics can be deciphered here without a lyrics sheet, but the overall message is clear.  It is a message of support, hope and optimism.  It is something that again, will connect with a wide range of listeners.  When that positive message is paired with the song’s equally catchy pop punk musical arrangement, it will resonate with listeners even more.  It is just one example of what makes the album’s lyrical content important to examine.  ‘A New Direction’ is another key example of the lyrics’ importance.

‘A New Direction’ takes the more noted socially conscious approach in its lyrical content.  Originally featured in the band’s 2018 album Sound The Sirens, this song’s lyrical theme is one of those familiar songs that calls for social action.  This is evidenced in the song’s lead verse, which states in part, “Society is coming unglued/We’re ticking time bombs/Long overdue.”  The mentions in the second verse of “mind slavery” and feeding “the wolves their own agendas” is a powerful statement in itself.  The cry in the chorus, “Take the reins/This is your tomorrow/Be the change/be the one we follow…we are in for one hell of a ride” adds even more to that statement.  The added note that “you have a purpose in this life” will motivate listeners even more.  Between all of this and the rest of the song’s lyrical content, the noted call to action becomes increasingly clear.  What’s more, it avoids coming across in any preachy fashion, but rather in an infectious, encouraging fashion.  When that powerful message and presentation is paired with the song’s equally powerful musical arrangement, the song gains that much more impact.  It is just one more way in which the album’s lyrical themes prove so important to its whole.  ‘Always With You,’ which come late in the album’s run, is one more example of what makes the album’s lyrical content so important to its whole.

The lyrical theme featured in ‘Always With You’ is another uplifting message.  Right from the song’s outset, it states, “The best is yet to come or so they say/And I become even  more proud of you with every passing day…we’ll take this  ride together through the lows and highs…Do your best…just know I’m with  you until the very end/This is your time…Just know you’ll make a difference.”  Some of the content here is, again, difficult to decipher.  That aside, the overall message is clear.  This is, again, a message of support from one person to another.  It is a message that a parent can use for a child.  It is a message that a friend can use for another friend.  It can even be used for one spouse to another.  That is how far-reaching it is and how positive it is.  It is another wonderful, uplifting statement that shows once again how much power is in the lyrical themes in this record.  When it is considered along with the other themes noted here and the rest of the album’s lyrical themes, that overall lyrical content here leaves no doubt as to its importance.  When all of that content is considered along with the record’s overall musical content, that mass makes for that much more appeal.  It is collectively just one more way in which the album proves itself such a welcome new offering from Chaser.  The record’s production puts the finishing touch to its presentation.

Dreamers’ production is important to discuss because of its impact on the record’s general presentation.  Considering how much is going on in each of the album’s featured songs in terms of instrumentation and energy, it would have been easy for the album to get bogged down in itself.  The vocals and instrumentations could easily have gotten lost among themselves, ergo losing the impact and sound.  Thankfully that did not happen here.  Rather, it is clear that the utmost attention was paid to each song to ensure every element was balanced.  That time and effort paid off from one song to the next.  The result is that the songs’ arrangements are expertly balanced.  What’s more, the subtleties in the stylistic approach and sound from one song to the next are just clear enough to create its own appeal.  The end result is a record whose production gives listeners just as much to appreciate here as in the record’s overall content.  All things considered, the production and content collectively makes Dreamers a welcome return from Chaser and a valid candidate for a spot on any critic’s list of the year’s top new albums and rock albums.

Chaser’s new album, Dreamers is the kind of presentation of which any rock fan dreams.  Yes, that awful pun was intended.  That is proven in part through its musical arrangements.  The arrangements in question give listeners the best of the surf punk and pop punk realms.  Every song is comparable to works within both subgenre’s realms from so many other listeners.  That familiarity is certain to engage and entertain listeners in its own way.  The uplifting and socially conscious lyrical themes that accompany the album’s musical arrangements add their own appeal to the album’s presentation.  The record’s production puts the finishing touch to its presentation, bringing everything together.  Each item noted is important in its own way to the whole of the album.  All things considered, they make Dreamers a work that will appeal to any punk rock fan and a work that will hold its own at year’s end when critics put in their “best of” lists.  Dreamers is scheduled for release Thursday through Thousand Islands Records/Soundspeed Records/SBAM Records/Pee Records.

The band debuted its new single, ‘Blood in the Sand,’ Friday, along with the song’s video. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album, Mid-Century Modern, which is scheduled for release in June through Wiretap Records and Disconnect Disconnect Records. The album’s exact release date is under consideration.

The track listing for Mid-Century Modern is noted below.

2. Blood in the Sand

3. Crisis Actors

4. Warmest Condolences

5. Sorry, My Mistake

6. Syntax Error OK

7. Up to No Good

8. Too Many Problems

9. The Ballad of Jack Nance

10. Lame Duck

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Blood in the Sand’ is a catchy, up-tempo pop punk opus. The infectious choral element and guitar arrangement pair with the solid but simple time keeping to make for plenty of appeal. Fans of bands, such as Jimmy Eat World, New Found Glory, and The Dangerous Summer will especially enjoy this musical presentation. The song’s lyrical theme makes for its own interest.

Front man Chris Veinot discussed the song’s lyrical theme and its video during a recent interview.

“The lyrics recount the plot of a non-existent delinquent teen movie I dreamed about during a full moon, something from the mid-to-late 60s that could’ve been directed by Al Adamson or Ray Dennis Steckler,” he said. “The title doesn’t sound like what the song sounds like, but it was the name of the picture in the dream. We might have destroyed the fabric of space & time if we’d changed it, y’know?”

“The video has nothing to do with the song and everything to do with the fact that we are still under lockdown and all we have footage of is cats,” added Veinot. Sincere apologies to all the dog persons.

Courtesy: Wiretap Records

Independent punk band Taken Days is giving audiences their first preview of its debut album.

The band unveiled lead single ‘How’d It Come To This?‘ from its album Every Second… Friday along with the song’s video. The album is scheduled for release March 19 through Wiretap Records.

‘How’d It Come to This?’ is a catchy pop punk style composition that will appeal to fans of more well-known pop punk acts, such as Blink-182, All Time Low, and New Found Glory. The song’s lyrical theme focuses on the all-too-familiar topic of a broken relationship.

The video for Taken Days’ new single puts the band into a recording studio, performing the song for what is supposed to be an uptight record executive who initially lambasts the band. The portrayal itself makes for its own entertainment. The band’s own performance leading into the song will make for its own laughs, too.

Record Thieves Debuts New Single, ‘Sacrifice’

Courtesy: Thousand Islands Records

Punk rock Super Group Record Thieves debuted the lead single from its new album this week.

The band debuted its new single ‘Sacrifice‘ Wednesday. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming debut album Wasting Time, which is scheduled for release Nov. 24 through Thousand Island Records.

The song’s musical arrangement is a stark departure from the sounds created through the band members’ original bands — Allout Helter, Authority zero, and Boldtype. Rather it is more akin to works from the likes of New Found Glory, Millencolin, and Rise Against. That is evidenced through its pop punk style sound and stylistic approach.

The song’s lyrical content comes across as one of those familiar inner ruminations focusing on the topic of facing everything happening in the world and standing up for one’s beliefs. That familiar lyrical topic couples with the song’s accessible musical arrangement to make the work in whole a work that will connect with a wide range of listeners.

Punk, Pop Punk Fans Will Agree Mercy Music’s New LP Deserves Its Own Time In The Light

Courtesy: Wiretap Records

Independent pop punk band Mercy Music released its new album this week in the form of Nothing in the Dark.  The 10-song record is short, clocking in at only 26 minutes, but despite that short run time, it proves itself a positive new offering from the band.  That is proven through its musical arrangements and lyrical themes.  This is proven right from the album’s outset in the form of its single ‘Living With a Ghost.’  This song will be discussed shortly.  ‘Even If I’ve Lost,’ the album’s closer, is another of its high points.  It will be addressed a little later.  The album’s title track, which comes just past the record’s midpoint, is another key addition to its presentation.  It will also be discussed later.  When it is considered along with the other two songs noted here and the rest of the record’s works, the whole of that content makes this album a work that will appeal to any pop punk fan.

Nothing in the Dark is a record from which no pop punk fan has anything to fear.  That is proven from start to end of the record, which clocks in at less than half an hour.  That is proven right from the album’s outset in the form of ‘Living With A Ghost.’  The song is a strong start to the album.  That is due in part to the song’s musical arrangement, which exhibits a wide range of influences.  On one hand, the infectious guitar riffs couple with the bass, drums and vocals to make for a composition that lends itself to works from the likes of All Time Low.  The guitar solo in the bridge is immediately comparable to those of Dropkick Murphys.  On yet another hand, one could just as easily compare this song to works from New Found Glory.  Keeping all of this in mind, it goes to show just in this case what makes this song stand out among the album’s entries.  It shows the wide appeal of the album’s musical content.  Of course, the song’s musical content is not all that is worth examining.  The song’s lyrical content adds to its appeal in its own right.

The song’s lyrical content delivers an uplifting message that couples well with the upbeat sense in the work’s musical arrangement.  Front man Brendan Scholz delivers the message right from the song’s opening as he sings, “Only going up from here/Broken in a brand new year/But it’s alright/Something good will come around/Put all their faith in me/In the red with mouths to feed/I fight/They fall and break/I play pretend/I see it/Won’t leave it alone/Believe this or so I’m told/Don’t/But I need to/And it’s okay/Take it from me/Are we just fucked/To live and die unknown/Living with a ghost.”  This verse in itself delivers a seeming message of perseverance, accepting one’s situation, but making the best of said circumstances.  That message continues as Scholz sings in the song’s second verse, “Honestly I’m ruled by fear/And losing all that I hold dear/But it’s alright/Something good will come around/This idiotic make believe/That I’ll be the man I want to be/But it’s alright/The light is gone/Too weak/I need a friend/I see it/Won’t leave it alone/Believe this or so I’m told/Don’t, but I need to/And it’s OK/Take it from me/Are we just fucked to live and die unknown/Living with a ghost.”  Again, that message of accepting the situation but seeing that proverbial light at the end of the tunnel is echoed, just in a different way.  That uplifting message couples with the song’s equally upbeat musical arrangement to make clear why this song is such a key addition to Nothing in the Dark.  It is just one of the songs that makes the album stand out in this year’s field of new punk and pop punk records.  ‘Even If I’ve Lost,’ the record’s finale, is another example of the album’s strength.

‘Even If I’m Lost’ clocks in at just above the two-minute mark.  To be precise, its run time is two minutes, 14-seconds.  In that short time, the band manages to impress just as much here as at any other point in the record’s run.  That is due in part to the song’s musical arrangement.  This full-throttle work is comparable to works from Pennywise, Rancid and plenty of other punk bands in terms of its sound and stylistic thanks to its guitar riff, precision time keeping and vocal delivery.  Working through this song without a lyrics sheet to reference, the lyrics are difficult to fully decipher.  What can be deciphered without lyrics is that the song seems to deliver a message similar to that of the album’s opener.

One can hear at least to a point, Scholz making statements about things not getting any easier, but trying “even if I’ve lost.”  There’s also a mention of recognizing how “everyone around you betrays” and “the biggest detriment” being something having to do with “common sense.”  Again, not having a lyrics sheet to reference, some of the words get lost amid the instruments.  However, enough of this is decipherable to know that the song seems to deliver another uplifting message, this time of not giving p, despite the situation.  To that end, if that is in fact the message being delivered, then message and received and appreciated.  Together with the song’s positive vibe and fiery energy, the song in whole proves in its own way why the album is worth hearing.  It is just one more of the album’s most notable songs, too.  The record’s title track does its own part to exhibit the album’s strength.

‘Nothing in the Dark’ offers audiences an acoustic performance from Scholz.  It is just him and his guitar here, which makes for its own impact.  The song clocks in at just over two-and-a-half minutes, but even in that short time, the emotion delivered through Scholz’s vocals and guitar playing translates well.  Together with the lyical content, that impact increases.

Scholz sings in the song’s lead verse, “I’m still awake/Eyes are bleeding/Pain I never wanted to know/You’re finding peace/Sweetly Sleeping/but you know how this one goes/When I go out I’ll be sure/That I go out alone/We can be two lonely people/the way it was before/My body shakes/Not f****** dealing/Wait for me to go…but you know how this one goes/When I go out/I’ll be sure/That I go out alone/We can be two lonely people/The way it was before.”  The rest of the song continues in similar fashion with the noted statement about an obvious breakup between a couple.  There is a certain intensity in Scholz’s voice as he sings some of the lines.  When it is juxtaposed against that simple approach to the song’s arrangement, the emotional impact makes for that much more strength.  Considering that impact, when the song is considered along with the other songs noted here and the rest of the album’s works, the whole makes the album a record that is sure to appeal to any punk and pop punk fan.

Mercy Music’s new album Nothing in the Dark is a work that punk and pop punk fans alike will agree is worth hearing at least once.  That is proven through the album’s musical and lyrical content.  As evidenced here, the musical arrangements are catchy and infectious while the lyrical content is accessible in its own right, adding even more to the record’s appeal.  All thee of the songs addressed here serve to support the noted statements.  When they are considered with the rest of the album’s works, the whole becomes a work that punk and pop punk fans will agree deserves its own moment in the light.  The album is available now.  More information on the record is available along with all of the band’s latest news at:

Another Year Unknown Debuts New Single, ‘A-TT-I-C’

Courtesy: Earshot Media

Pop punk band Another Year Unknown debuted its latest single this week.

The band debuted its new single ‘A-TT-I-C’ Thursday.  The song, available to stream and download here, is featured in the band’s EP Stymie.  It presents a sound that will appeal to fans of bands, such as Sum 41, New Found Glory and Blink-182.  Its lyrical theme presents a coming-of-age story of sorts.

The band talked about that theme in a recent interview.

“When writing A-TT-I-C we wanted to write something that gives that iconic early 2000’s summer pop-punk feel with our own style,” the statement reads.  “Our goal was, if we had a chance to write a song for ‘American Pie’ back in the day, what would it be? Well it would be A-TT-I-C.”
