    This album is going to be massive I think. First two songs really kick some butt.

    I feel like I listened to Berkley's On Fire when it first came out and didn't love it, but I just listened now and I can't figure out why I would've felt that cus it's a ton of fun. April in Houston is also great. Pretty excited for this.

    I'm probably gonna go to this. Should be a fun show. I've been meaning to see the Regrettes for a while.

    Pretty fun song. This album is going to be tight.

    I gotta grab a ticket to this show, the venue is threatening me that they're "selling fast" and it's working

    I'll write you into all of my songs Supporter

    Yeah so this album is, again, two halves

    I really like like 75% of the songs

    I did not expect to love this so much. It’s not groundbreaking, but I feel like there’s enough experimentation to keep it feeling fresh and exciting, and it’s just a ton of fun. I’m going to be going back quite a bit I think

    Never heard this band, just listened to this and actually liked it a lot. Very surprised haha, the stylization of the name and all their Alt Press coverage had me assuming they were like a bland pop punk band, or like some Waterparks bullshit. This is actually a lot of fun, I can see myself coming back to this a lot in the summer
     
  15. Digging this new album a lot, actually.

    This really is the perfect pop punk album.

    Outside of the closer, really dig all the tracks. Excited for the Boston date.
     
  18. This album is very good and I'm very surprised by it. This album was definitely not on my radar for 2019. Its a nice step forward for them! Also, Check out this full set from a few days ago. They play a lot of new songs.

    @tdlyon tagging you in this post cause of your Weezer post -- you heard this? I know you from GDC so I automatically assume you're a bit interested in this haha

    I actually haven't gotten around to checking SWMRS out at all yet. I saw them open for ATL a couple years ago and they also obviously have the GD connection lol so they're on my list to listen to. I'll update you when I do!

    As a huge Green Day nerd I've been following these guys since they were literally little kids, even though their music has never really worked for me. I know many people who really loved their debut record "Drive North", but I never got into it.

    That being said, this new album is fucking fantastic. These kids have become so talented. I can't stop listening to it, it's a perfect summer record. I also feel like they have a hugely unique style that sets them apart from other pop punk bands (if you can even call this pop punk). They utilize electronic sounds and samples in a way that doesn't distract from their garage band sound. They have the potential to become huge now.

    Also, I saw them live twice and just now realized that their touring guitarist that they've had since last year is actually Billie Joe's OTHER son, Jakob Armstrong. So both of his kids are in this band now.

    This is really sad to hear, I hope there is a speedy recovery.
