EP Review: Heroes Like Villains – Amends

There’s nothing that helps an excruciatingly terrible day like some classic pop-punk, and Heroes Like Villains provides the perfect distraction with Amends. This Columbus group, heavily engaged in the local scene, is actually opening for Four Year Strong in a sold-out show when they come through town – and they’re ecstatic about it. If you’re not going to that show, be sure to check out where else they’re playing soon, and until then, check out Amends! … More EP Review: Heroes Like Villains – Amends

Album Review: In Our Bones – Against The Current

I’m always into new and exciting pop-punk, especially when there are daring females involved. Against The Current, with badass-yet-still-adorable lead vocalist Chrissy Costanza, fits this description to a T. In Our Bones, their latest (and debut full-length), is classified as pop-rock, but every song has a little bit of a punk twist. Too often, vocalists can … More Album Review: In Our Bones – Against The Current

Album Review: For The Night To Control – Electric Century

Often compared to artists like twenty … More Album Review: For The Night To Control – Electric Century

Album Review: Never Happy, Ever After – As It Is

Having played every date on Warped Tour 2015, As It Is has a number of achievements already, despite having only been signed to Fearless Records in 2014. Interestingly enough, frontman Patty Walters was also a somewhat successful Youtuber during the band’s origin days, but announced an indefinite hiatus in 2014 in an attempt to focus … More Album Review: Never Happy, Ever After – As It Is

Album Review: Frank Iero and the Patience – Parachutes

Frank Iero is back again with his second album, but nothing is the same in Parachutes (out next Friday, October 28). In fact, the new album stands in such stark contrast to Stomachaches that Iero felt he needed to change the band’s name. Despite (thankfully) no lineup change, The Cellabration has been transformed into The Patience, and their sound underwent a major … More Album Review: Frank Iero and the Patience – Parachutes
