We all had our gateway drug into punk rock. For me it was MxPx & Green Day. It hooked me, so I got into a lot more punk rock, finding other bands of the era, I found Rancid, Bad Religion, then got deep into the roots & discovered The Ramones & The Stooges. But when it came time that I started my first band, we tried to sound like MxPx & Green Day, because that’s what hooked us. It wasn’t for everyone, but it’s what we liked.

I have a feeling these guys heard Good Charlotte & Enema of the State era Blink 182 at a crucial moment of there music development & it stuck with them. Maybe it’s what you grew up with & love as well, & if you did, you definitely should give this band a listen.

Lyrically, it’s the perfect break up song. If you’re heart has ever been broken, & you’re down on yourself & everything you probably did wrong to sabotage your own happiness, you’ll feel what the writer is feeling. It’s a bit emo lyrically, but we’ve all been there, & it has been perfect therapy for generations. Musically, it’s the bridge, the rock & roll breakdowns are great, & I’m sure a blast to play.

It’s music, not everyone will love the same things, but if this was your era, I see the appeal. Go give it a shot. If nothing else, a few streams on Spotify will help a band trying to breakout, so go support their dreams!

This is a heavy hitting EP of anthems for the bad days.  The title track Misery-Punk Ruined My Life is a fist pumping way of saying, “me too.”  We’ve all had those days where we want to get the words to come out right and it doesn’t work and we end up miserable.  Mornings and relational trepidation are the themes that round out the EP. When you’re questioning if there is more to life than this, this is the music you put on.  By the end I was ok with it all and you might say happy. I can’t wait to see what is ahead for this quartet from Scotland.
