Since there seems to be more and more interest in talking about this band -- I figured I'd start up a thread!

For the uninitiated, these guys are a pop-punk band with male/female dual vocals that will probably appeal to fans of: Lemuria, early Blink-182, the Menzingers, Motion City Soundtrack, Dillinger Four, Broadway Calls, and/or the Lawrence Arms. And they're about to hit the road with Daytrader and play a show or two with the Wonder Years.

Into it? Right on. They have free music available at Death to False Hope Records:

Maps (full-length LP)
Thoughts About Growing Up (EP)
Castle Songs (EP)



Now. Discuss!

Start with the full-length. That's the most "diverse." The other EP is all fast songs--and the single isn't a very good indicator of their overall sound, haha.

They also have a new Web site where you can buy stuff. Not the least of which are these sweet mesh basketball shorts that seem to mock the Man Overboard logo. It says "I'm sick of everyone" on the bottom.



Or something like that.

It's my first official thread! Haha. I still need to snag a t-shirt and the "official" physical release of Maps, but I own all of the vinyl. As for Living With Lions? They're a pretty awesome live band! I've only seen the Wonder Years once, but for my money? Living With Lions are the better live band. But that's just one man's opinion.

I'm not sure why that hasn't gone down yet. And to be honest, I'm surprised they haven't been officially signed anywhere yet. That's my guess as to why Maps hasn't been released that way quite yet. But then again--they've been a band for barely a year. We'll see what 2011 brings! Already, they seem to be touring more...

and with bigger bands! but yeah, hopefully they put out another full-length eventually. i like the e.p.'s and all, but i also like albums over 2 minutes long.

"And If We Both Fail?" is one of the most heartbreaking songs i've ever heard.
