As one of Drive-Thru Records' initial signees, Allister had the distinction of being one of the first in a long line of bands that assisted in introducing the new era of the indie-label craze that SoCal pop-punk helped create (we all remember Epitaph's early success). Their debut, Dead Ends and Girlfriends, is a classically-themed pop-punk album that paid homage to both pioneers like Descendants and modern-day prophets like blink-182. Before their 2007 demise, Allister continued to grow as snot-nosed pop-punkers who loved to play loud & fast, sang about girls (and why they suck) and even alcoholism. If you were a fan, come share your memories with us, and if you're new to Allister, feel...

Below is an update from Allister regarding their recent van accident and how it will effect their upcoming dates (if at all).

Allister Says "Wear Your Seatbelts!I've been getting a bunch of emails about the crash so just to clarify things we did not crash with the fold. They slid into a ditch at some point during the night and we hit a patch of black ice after the minneapolis show and flipped our van and trailer totalling both. We are hoping to not have to cancel any shows as we are trying to get back on our feet financially asap... meaning being able to get a van and trailer to get to our upcoming scheduled dates with catch 22 on december 27-30.

PS everybody is 100% ok .....
