ABSOLUTExclusive: Traditions

Posted by - 07:04 AM on 01/28/14
Pop-punk has been such a hard genre to define over the past few years. It's taken on many sounds, shapes, and forms but one thing is undeniable - when a band does the genre justice, nothing else matters but the music. Today we're extremely excited to premiere the song "Progression Regression" from New England's Traditions. My initial take was the music of Real Friends meets the vocals of Valencia. The track comes from the band's upcoming EP Cycles out on March 11th. Listen to the track in the replies and it is available for pre-order.

I'm really diggin' this song, it reminds me of all the pop punk bands that ruled the scene back in 2008-2009.

Glad I'm not the only one raising eyebrows at that sentence.

Valencia, Hit The Lights, Four Year Strong, and The Wonder Years (just picked 4 random pop-punk bands off the top of my head) are all classified as pop-punk and they're all VERY different bands.

I agree with you. None of the "pop-punk" bands in the past (I think) 5-6 years have truly embodied "pop-punk" that excelled from late 90's to about '05.
