FEATURE: A look into pop-punk throughout 2011 and its highlights!

We all know that the mainstream in the last few years have been dominated by manufactured boy bands, passing themselves off as more than mere pop bands by their ability to play instruments, and in some cases not even then. We all know who I’m talking about. They took pop-punk and soiled its good name, and warped it beyond recognition. However, something seems to have kicked in in 2011, are we growing tired of this mainstream bullshit fad? Probably not, but growing in the underground is a movement that is growing stronger and stronger by the day and is even starting to make its push for broader horizons.

LIVE: Yellowcard @ Academy 2, Manchester (30/11/2011)

Date: November 30th, 2011
Venue: Academy 2, Manchester
Support: Saves The Day, The Wonder Years


It has been five long years since Yellowcard did a headline tour of the UK. They toured here last year when they inexplicably supported All Time Low. When I was 14, I was playing away on SSX3 which is when I discovered Yellowcard‘s ‘Way Away’, and I have been in love with the band ever since. So, you can imagine how much this gig means to me.

ALBUM: The Wonder Years – Suburbia, I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing

Release Date: June 14th, 2011
Label: Hopeless Records


‘Came Out Swinging’ is perhaps the perfect opening to The Wonder Years‘ third full-length studio album. It details the trials and tribulations that Soupy and co. have had to endure since their inception back in 2005. Its bittersweet melody tells a sad tale of how the hardships of touring with a punk bad, but the uplifting verse towards the end, “I came out swinging from a South Philly basement” signals better things to come. Choosing to end the song with “I spent the Winter writing songs about getting better, and if I’m being honest I’m getting there” is a bold statement, and it follows on nicely from their sophomore record, ‘The Upsides’.
