ARMS ALOFT plays some nearly perfectly executed catchy punk that sounds so Midwestern it's almost cliche. just imagine any of your favorite Midwest bands; I won't even bother picking one to associate with these guys, as they will soon be a band to whom others will be compared as an influence. Go crack an Old Style and drink it by yourself while listening to ARMS ALOFT to get the full experience.
In the Midwest, being whipped is conditioned modesty—the product of being worn out, exhausted and beat silly by grey waves of austerity. Whipped is a reaction to that silence, that fear of expression and honesty. It is the tension created by complacent walls of sound contrasting joyful chords that can break your skin.
Wringer is a band. Wringer is three dudes. Wringer plays the type of punk rock you can sing along to. Wringer is all about harmonies and major chords. Wringer knows what it's like to be weird. Wringer knows what it's like to be sad and pissed off and confused and naive. Wringer also knows what it's like to be stoked on life and music and friends and shit. Wringer doesn't know what it's like to be old and jaded. Wringer wants to make your basement a war zone but instead of bombs and bullets and blood and guts it's gonna be guitars and drums and pizza and nacho cheese.
The Revision Plan are a 3 piece melodic punk rock band from Chicago's suburbs. Their style reflects Chicago's pop punk mainstays mixed with a rock sound comparable to The Ataris or early Jimmy Eat World.
