New Noise
The Canadian melodic punk band have outdone themselves on their new release. Each track is a great listen, featuring the composition of master musicians while delivering an energy that is unmatched in the genre.

There are some good moments in these albums, the first two songs were quite good, but then it just started to use the usual pop punk riffs and it became sometimes a little bit corny. The album sounds quite good overall but is not a record I really loved.


▲ = Big Strum, Recoil, Heirloom
▬ = Performative Hours, Rat KIng, Top Left Door, It'll Hurt, Oath, Souvenir, Tunnel Vision, Under a Dying Sun
▼ =


Overall sounds good, half the tracks felt generic and boring but still enjoyable. The good tracks that stood out a bit were pretty good.
Favourite tracks: rat king, under a dying sun, top left door
