AP.net Feature Article: Pop Punk's Not Dead

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (10/23/11)
Today, we have a feature article up about the Pop Punk's Not Dead Tour and New Found Glory. I was lucky enough to interview This Time Next Year, Man Overboard and The Wonder Years in a round-table discussion on an off-date show in Jacksonville (full interview to come Wednesday) and New Found Glory (interview Thursday) later in the week via phone call. Please check out for your reading pleasure: Alive and Kicking: The Pop Punk’s Not Dead Tour and Why New Found Glory Refuse to Let This Genre Sink. Topics range from the tour and the pop-punk community to New Found Glory's leadership in the genre and everywhere in between.

Soupy is such an insightful dude. Most of what he says in interviews is pure gold.

This wasn't a personal thing, I just didn't get any interest from them in doing an interview and without quotes it's hard to fit the band into the article - especially when you have some good quotes like that from the other groups.

I know it's your first day, but I hate you already. If you think that about a genre of music, there is no need for you to come in and comment about it.

Now, now. Okay, it might not be dead, but crippled - this isn't 2003. Trust me, I was there when it was dominating.

Hate's pretty strong, brother. I am but just another faceless poster in a music forum stating my own opinion.

And it is on its way back up. There has been a resurgence of great pop-punk bands in the last 3 years, or so. There is no denying that it is coming back full force.
