I could never get into them.

So that leaves 2 popular Australian pop punk bands?

Birthdays still the greatest track

That's a bummer, I just reloaded my MP3 player with their albums the other day, and was hoping they might have something new coming out soon.

I was surprised with how much I enjoyed this band when I heard of them. Interested to hear that last EP for sure.

I saw this on Built on secrets FB today. Apparently this band has had like 5 releases but I've never heard of them til now. Any good? RIYL?

Sad to see this band go. Really liked them.

This news devastates me. Finders Keepers was a really good debut album.

Tonight Alive and Heroes For Hire are probably the only big ones left... but bands like I Am Villain, Monuments, Colour The Sky, The Decline, Chris Duke and The Royals are all really good Aussie pop an/or punk bands.

Devo as well!!. I only really rated them and Tonight Alive as the only good new wave pop/punk in Aust.
Finders Keepers was one of my fave CDs of last year

Maybe Heroes for hire can step up now they have Steve from NFG doing their newie

Maybe Bodyjar and one dollar short can make new songs seeing they did reunion tours

Finders Keepers should have made waves for them. I'm really excited for Heroes For Hires upcoming album it is shaping up pretty well.

I would love some new music from One Dollar Short. I think their singer actually did guest vocals on Finders Keepers...

RIYL: Early New Found Glory with an Australian accent. It's hard to think of anything besides Pop Punk as a recommendation, it's just good.
