Departures

Here we have another band from Jersey already making some waves in the punk rock community. They formed in 2009 and since then have gone to tour with the likes of New Found Glory and Crime in Stereo, two very big names in that category.

The band also recorded an EP with John Naclerio, who is known for working with Polar Bear Club, Brand New, and My Chemical Romance. If that’s not credentials for you then I don’t know what is. I mean, this band are already halfway there and with the aforementioned EP ‘Without Fear” out now for purchasing, I’d say they’re well on their way getting on some more sizable tours, venues, etc.

If you like any of the bands mentioned at all then there’s no reason not to like this band. They’ve got great songs, a great punk rock ethic meshed with the more modern deliverance of that style of music. They’d be a perfect band to enjoy in the early stages of a Warped Tour gig. They can get the crowd going and are really upbeat but can get down and dirty if they have to.

Here are a few links for you to check out. Please do because I feel like we might hear more from these guys in a few short years.

They also have a facebook page for you to check out as well. Out of all the bands so far, these guys are the only one’s who are expressing serious interest in a possible interview date. For all of you who have contacted me or haven’t contacted me yet, if you guys want interviews and the whole nine yards, i’ll do what I can to give it to you. All you gotta do is ask.

Until next time,

Luke Helker
