Heel Heat productions has again procured an excellent set of pop punk and emo bands to bring to Basement Transmissions.
Carousel Kings have taken their brand of heavy pop-punk from Lancaster, Pa. across the country, and into the arms of Victory Records. The catchy melodies and guitar hooks found on the band's latest album Charm City are highly recommended to any A Day To Remember fan.
The Weekend Classic has made Erie a stop on tour from Indiana so frequently, I almost feel compelled to call them a local band. In any case, their EP More Alive articulately toes the line between pop-punk and emo, making them a perfect middle man for this show's overall motif.
Local favorites Mallory Run may have started as a pop-punk band, but their 2016 self-titled EP took them into the realm of emo, and the much anticipated follow-up EP, Spin, set to release on April 20 (although bootlegs have been making rounds at local shows) assimilates them even further into the emo category. Check out the video for the EP's first single "Marigold."
Sorry Mom from Kent, Ohio, opens the show with a similar easy-core style as Carousel Kings, setting up the pop-punk bookends for the show. — Tommy Shannon
