    The Day Star Approaches, You Know What It Brings

    One day this’ll make you proud...

    Starting 02/11

    Celebrate the works of one of the best and most underrated pop-punk groups around by voting for your favorite songs!

    This bracket will consist of nine rounds...

    1.) Chroma
    2.) Cartel
    3.) Cycles
    4.) Collider
    5.) In Stereo
    6.) The Ransom
    7.) B-Sides & Covers
    8.) Wild Card
    9.) Championship

    Be sure to subscribe and invite friends!

    Some Ground Rules...

    - Each round of voting will be open for roughly 24 hours, starting around midnight PST and going until midnight the next day. Voting on weekends will remain open for 48 hours (so, Saturday and Sunday.)

    - Each participant may vote only once per round, though you may vote or abstain from any round you choose. Once the final tallies for a round have been posted, you cannot cast a vote for that particular round.

    - As the bracket runner, I will only cast my own vote in the event of a tie-breaker.

    - After you have posted your vote, I will like that post. Once I have liked that post, your vote cannot be changed. (You will also get unconditional likes for anything you post here, so yay!)

    - Debate is expected and encouraged, but please remember to always be respectful. Any teasing should be obviously humorous and good natured!

    - Listen to Cartel and have fun!!

    I've listened to Chroma and I've listened to Let's Go and Faster Ride from Cycles, but I don't really know any of the deep cuts haha

    A (I love If I Fail, but A is a strong contender to win the entire Cartel bracket)

    Honestly (This wasn't too bad)

    Matter of Time (This is basically a coin flip for me, I'll give it to Matter of Time by a slight margin)

    Burn This City (Ugh, this one is tough! Two of my favorites on the album)


    I love Chroma, but I definitely fell off after the self-titled album. It'll be cool to revisit their later albums for this bracket.
