ABSOLUTExclusive: Shut Up And Deal

Posted by - 08:06 AM on 05/08/12
Whenever I talk music with friends who remember the "good old days" when Tell All Your Friends, Sticks and Stones, and the like ruled our CD collection, we would then get sad because it's hard to find bands carrying the torch of that older sound. However, after being sent this track from Shut Up and Deal, I knew that it would be perfect to debut on AP.net. If you love dual vocals, tales of heartbreak, and a driving chorus, then I implore you to head to the band's AP.net profile and take a listen. Leave your comments in the replies.

This song is so good. Gave me such an old school vibe listening to it.

The way the second verse begins is just so Taking Back Sunday, and I know that probably doesn't make a lot of sense. But fuck, this is awesome.

I'd say their voices do sound more like FYS (and strikingly similar now that you point it out), but that's about it for me.

These guys are the shit! I got to chill with them at Warped this past year and they're all really nice. They were on the Kevin Says Stage so no one really got to see them, but their energy was amazing.

Yeah I'm getting much more of a FYS vibe like everyone else. If you're craving that TBS sound, check out Stateside.

Second singer sounds like both FYS singers combined. Yeah, sounds like a mix of TBS and FYS because of that, IMO.

good to see a good Connecticut band (at least a member or two) still going at it. Good song.

Pretty sure I have a few EPs from these guys that I bought at Warped a few years ago. Funny how bands just pop up like that. Definitely hear the vocal similarities to FYS, but they still have a great sound.

I heard these guys at Warped Tour 2 years ago, and instantly bought both of their EP's. They're so good...

Nothing about this stuck out to me. Then again, if Tell All Your Friends came out tomorrow I probably wouldn't enjoy it nearly as much as I did in high school...that record still gets play, but it's mostly the nostalgia factor that makes me belt the whole thing out in my car.
