    Pop Punk

    Albany, New York-based pop-punk band State Champs began in 2010, basing their quick-paced and emotive sound on the influence of masters of the genre like Fall Out Boy, the Story So Far, and New Found Glory. Based around singer Derek Discanio's wailing vocals, the band was filled out by guitarists Tyler Szalkowski and Tony Diaz and bassist William Goodermote; they were eventually joined by drummer Evan Ambrosio. After a demo circulated, the band released the Overslept EP in late 2012, and followed with full-length The Finer Things in 2013. An acoustic revamp of The Finer Things -- The Acoustic Things EP -- was released in late 2014. A year later, the band released their second LP, Around the World and Back, on Pure Noise Records. The album would prove to be somewhat of a breakout for State Champs, reaching number 30 on Billboard's Top 200 and laying the foundation for two years of hard touring. They issued a deluxe version of the same album with a DVD and a number of bonus songs in early 2017.

    Pop

     

    Since forming in 2005, Mayday Parade have amassed one of the most loyal, rabid fan bases around thanks to energizing concerts and four studio albums full of heart-on-sleeve lyrics. With the release of their arresting fifth record, the Mike Sapone-produced 'Black Lines,' the members of the Florida pop-rock quintet -- vocalist Derek Sanders, guitarists Brooks Betts and Alex Garcia, bassist Jeremy Lenzo and drummer Jake Bundrick -- are taking a giant leap forward as musicians and songwriters.

    "It's time to switch things up a little bit," Sanders says.

    That's evident from 'Black Lines'' ferocious opening song, "One Of Them Will Destroy The Other," which features slashing guitars, throat-shredding vocals and a guest appearance from Real Friends' Dan Lambton. The sizzling, grungy "Hollow" and the tornadic, teeth-baring "Let's Be Honest" also boast aggressive riffs and a propulsive rhythmic backbone.

    "We noticed some of the songs were heavier than we've ever done, that there were a lot of guitar riffs we had never really had before," Bundrick says. "We tried to make those parts more distinct."

    Yet like other Mayday Parade albums, 'Black Lines' is certainly dynamic -- for example, the tension-filled, simmering choruses on "Underneath The Tide" explode into soaring, noisy verses -- and has undeniable variety: "Just Out Of Reach" ends with a plaintive piano coda and lonely vocals, while the '90s alt-rock-reminiscent "Letting Go" is driven by rich acoustic guitar and Sanders' delicate singing.

    The sonic evolution was a natural progression for Mayday Parade, which is comprised of childhood friends who cut their teeth in the Tallahassee, Florida, music scene. The group famously self-released 2006's 'Tales Told by Dead Friends' EP and followed Warped Tour around selling the CD to kids waiting in line -- which eventually led to a record deal and several official stints performing on Warped Tour, as well as tours with bands ranging from the Pierce The Veil, to All Time Low, and PVRIS.

    On 'Black Lines,' Mayday Parade wanted a rawer sound that more accurately reflected their magnetic live performances. But the band also wanted to convey greater emotional complexity and sophistication: Songs focus less on heartbreak and more on mature, grown-up topics -- navigating the nuances of adult relationships and friendships, when there's more at stake and things aren't so black and white. "We're people in happy relationships with good things going on in our lives, so we didn't want to keep writing songs about all these sad topics," Sanders says. "Of course, there is some of that in the record for sure -- but we tried to focus a little more on other things, just life and growing up."

    Long-time fans shouldn't worry, however: Mayday Parade's core creative process, which is steeped in collaboration and democratic decision-making, remains firmly intact. "We all bring in ideas, and they could change drastically once everybody puts in their input," Sanders says. "It wouldn't be a Mayday Parade record if we didn't all five work on the songs together like that." In fact, 'Black Lines' was even more of a group effort -- which is not only a representation of how each band member has improved musically, but also an indication of their innate, ever-evolving chemistry. Ten years into their career, the members of Mayday Parade are more creatively charged than ever.

  • The Maine

    The Maine

    Pop

    Formed in Arizona back in 2007, The Maine released their sixth studio album in the spring of 2017 - during their tenth year together as a band. Over the years, the band has been labelled as pop, alternative, rock, emo and every style in between. Now, The Maine continue to defy genre stereotypes with their most recent album and independent release, Lovely Little Lonely. Cohesively, the album flows together as the perfect natural evolution from their last full length, American Candy. Recently, the band covered Death Cab For Cutie’s “Transatlanticism” for Hopeless Records’ Songs That Saved My Life compilation benefiting mental health non-profits. Currently, The Maine is in the studio working on their seventh studio album. The release is set for 2019, which is already gearing up to be a busy year for the band. Kicking off with 8123 Fest, the band will be hosting their second ever music festival where they will perform a headlining set. The band’s touring plans for the new year will take them worldwide again including a North American supporting run for Taking Back Sunday. The Maine is John O’Callaghan, Pat Kirch, Jared Monaco, Garrett Nickelsen, and Kennedy Brock.
