Sympathy and Validation is essentially a voicemail you leave your friend when you’re having a panic attack. Your brain is racing a mile a minute and you’re convinced that if you could just connect with someone and have them validate your feelings you could maybe find some semblance of peace.
‘Poisoned Lungs’ was written and recorded throughout 2020; matching the frustration caused by the chaotic stop and start nature of each social restriction. There’s a rage behind this single. A harder take on our previous sound; we're playing faster and we're singing about things that matter.
Premiering almost twelve months to the day from their last packed gig before lockdown, Drop Dead forms the capstone of the most emo year on record. It also serves as the title track for an aptly-named EP in a time of global pandemic, civil unrest, and collapsing infrastructure—DROP DEAD.
We are bunch of old dudes who have been in touring bands for the last 15-20 years. Recently came together to write some new music. This track is about aging punks and the transition from the rock n roll lifestyle to something more normal. This is our debut track.
Hi everyone! My name is Wes Hoffman. I've recently released my new punk rock single, titled “What’s Left of Me”. It's a song about going through major transitions in your life and being there for your friends. Hope you'll like it!
I wanted to write something that was honest to my own experiences, while at the same time relatable. You can be overwhelmed by a wave of conflicting emotions when a relationship ends — and that love doesn’t immediately disappear. It’s painful and disorienting. - Matt Warmuth
Hi! I'm James! When the planet shutdown in March I wrote a song about finding forgiveness at what felt like the end of the world. Dealing with a relationship that ended catastrophically and a global pandemic at the same time was a lot to process. I wrote Love Song in 2020 for everyone in that boat.
'Send For A Hospital' is the second single off of Tired Radio's debut album 'Patterns', out now on Engineer Records. It's a brooding banger of a track written by Anthony Truzzolino and fuelled by lifelong struggles with depression and anxiety.

Hi readers. We're Young Pretorians from Portsmouth, UK. We recorded a quarantine music video like everyone else for our first single, recorded with Ben Whyntie at Old Blacksmiths Studio. Check out our homemade video for 'A Way Out' for a little bit of an insight into our exit strategy for 2020.
Merging grunge with 2000s punk; we have whipped up an exciting, energetic sound with our new track 'Far Away'. Forming in early 2020 (just before the world went into lockdown) we managed to squeeze some time into the recording studio and finish off this track!
If you don't listen to this song, you have to marry your mother-in-law. This is our tribute to the show I Think You Should Leave and we hope it's right in your Q-Zone, baby. Also, if you don't like it we'll have no choice but to kick your ass, sorry!!
From Sam: ”The Window is about chasing down your demons, Evil Dead 2 style. It was the first song I recorded for Back To The Party and it’s the only good thing I’ve ever done before 7am with two guys in a sweaty room with a two-way mirror.” Back To The Party, his third album, is a diverse-sounding record with a broad spectrum of emotions on display. You can hear the loyalty and the love, the fear and the hope, the desperation and the triumph. You can also hear Sam trying new things as he crafts 33 minutes of his best stuff yet.
Wild Once is a new four-piece indie-emo-dad-rock act out of Buffalo, NY. On our brooding title-track from our 2019 debut EP 'Perennials', big drums back an atmospheric guitar-driven sound, while not straying too far from emo/punk rock roots.
We're the Damn Tracks and we're a three piece Punk Rock n' Roll band from Chicago, IL. This is the first song off of our new album 'Second City Is Burning'. If you like this song, you'll love the album and we encourage you to check us out. Thanks!
One Million Motors is deja vu, like stories from strangers where you already know the ending. lt's the coffee and cigarette musings of The Menzingers; the tongue twitching urgency of the Descendents; the stumbling everyman poetics of Dave Hause.
