When I look back on this past year in music I took into consideration the albums I was looking forward to, the albums I didn’t see coming, and the songs that got stuck in my head all day. It’d really hard to do a retrospective but after serious consideration I finally got the the list right. Enjoy.
A few weeks ago I got the distinct pleasure of catching up with Andrew (Vocals) and Casey (Guitar) of hardcore group Comeback Kid. The interview took place in Chicago on the rooftop of the venue they were playing at while on tour with Four Year Strong. To say the least I had a great time and we had a few funny drunk moments. Enjoy!
Bursting at the seams with a vibrant energy and overall positivity comes the Orange County sensation STICK TO YOUR GUNS, who’s newest offering, The Hope Division, is the soundtrack to the new hardcore/punk revolution. Visionary Jesse Barnett (vocals) was originally inspired to form a band that would provide him with a medium to project his view points and reflect his musical influences and he continues to do just that to this very day bringing a new stable of accomplished musicians on board. STYG blends melody, heaviness, and sincerity into one solid sound that will cater to fans of Comeback Kid, Ignite and Rise Against.
STYG are currently in the midst of a headlining North American tour dubbed, “The Faith In The Untamed Tour”, with As Blood Runs Black, Attila, For The Fallen Dreams and Close Your Eyes. Be sure to head over now to www.myspace.com/styg
