Pop-punk is a tough genre to be in right now and an even harder one to stand out in, but I think Seasons Change have a good chance to make a name for themselves. Bringing in the west coast sound that bands like The Story So Far and Forever Came Calling have begun to really trademark, this band is going to make a mark in the pop-punk world. Listen to "Not Sorry" on the band's AP.net profile or in the replies.

Boysetsfire will release their new album (and first since 2006) later this year on Bridge Nine Records. They are currently in the studio recording the effort.
BoySetsFire has been a band for nearly two decades. In that time the band has played hundreds of shows to anyone that would watch, from basements to festival audiences. They've lived through the terror or rap-rock, the tyranny of nu-metal, and the dark days of pop-punk. They were around before the internet. They made demo tapes. They recorded 4 LP's, EP's, Cd's and even a cassingle. They have played the song "Rookie" over 1,000 times. They have fallen off more stages than most people have stood on. They have been signed...
