You can read PureVolume's recent chat with The Wonder Years' frontman Dan Campbell here.
These songs are small pieces of a personal puzzle that equate to a cathartic hole—and that hole I feel can be generationally applied so on that small scale it's a really personal record. Lyrically, it's about me. It's about my life, and this idea that I tend to make excuses for fear of failure. I had to make excuses about why I wasn't going to get any better, why I wouldn't do anything bigger, why I was okay with being okay.

It's 5 o' clock somewhere.
Jake DenningI know it's not very "punk" of me, but I've really been enjoying Kenny Chesney's new album, Life On A Rock. Also, I've been listening to Memphis May Fire and To The Wind quite a bit this week.
Dre OkorleyStrongly recommend Chance the Rapper (think Kendrick Lamar, Kanye, Andre 3000 and Frank Ocean wrapped all into one w reggae, gospel, old school hip hop and southern rap...or hell just listen to it because he actually has his own style) and I've been jamming to Chunk! No Captain Chunk lately cause they're just fun.
Cody NelsonThe wonderful new BriTANicK video reminded me to go back through their backlog of hilarious content. Also, the BBC America TV...
