Following an incredibly busy year of shows in support of their debut record Hard Feelings, Major League has returned with a sophomore album that defies any pre-conceived notions and defines their next evolution as a band. With guitarist Brian Joyce now helming vocal duties, backed by Matt Chila (guitar/vocals), Kyle Bell (bass) and Luke Smartnick (drums), the band emerges with a new sense of identity, a renewed focus and an abundant amount of energy for their most personal recording to date.

For their latest effort, Major League worked with esteemed producer Will Yip (Title Fight, The Wonder Years, Balance and Composure) at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA who helped steer them in a new direction and further explore their internal boundaries as a band.

There's Nothing Wrong With Me as a whole dives into the deepest depths of my person and lays it all out,” explains Joyce. “While recording with Will there were many times where I was self conscious about certain subject matter on the record, things I wasn't sure I was ready to talk about. It was very emotional experience and at times nerve wracking to talk about. But ultimately it's what made the record who it is and gave it the identity we feel we've lacked in the past.”

Blood, sweat and tears in the studio paid off as the band came away with eleven brilliantly written tracks that run a gamut of emotions with thoughtful versus and intoxicating choruses. Song’s like “Pillow Talk,” are brought to life with massive riffs and driving rhythm that reveal a vulnerability and sincerity not heard since Jimmy Eat World got Clarity.

Major League will take their new record on the road this fall for a U.S. tour with Mayday Parade and Tonight Alive.

My brother, who doesn't really listen to pop punk, loves these guys. I don't get it.

This song is really boring compared to everything else they've released. I still have high hopes for this album though.

Those lyrics were pretty cringe worthy. Not really feeling this.

If this song is any indication of the rest of the record, I'm okay with it. Loving the guitarists vocals. Nick leaving may have been the best thing to happen to them.

Song's pretty solid. Hopefully anyone who wasn't into Hard Feelings gives this a shot. I think the new singer is an improvement.

This is actually really bad. The lyrics are subpar, the vocals sound flat and boring, and the whole sound is just overly generic.

On a similar note, is it only me or does every band who records with Will Yip end up sounding exactly the same? (Citizen, Title Fight, B&C and now Major League all come to my mind right away)

You could put this in a playlist of similar sounding bands and I probably couldn't pick it out.

I loved Hard Feelings for what it was – which was an extremely catchy and fun pop-punk record to jam. I was very disappointed when Nick left because I had always been a huge fan of his vocals, so I wasn't expecting a whole lot from Major League with this new record. I really like this song a lot, though, and I can't wait to hear the whole record now. I'll probably end up pre-ordering it tomorrow.

I actually didn't think it was that bad, also I can't stand any of their past material so to me this is an improvement. I really dig the album cover as well.
