Album Preview: Bearings – “Blue In The Dark”

Ottowa based pop punk band Bearings have had an incredible year and they’re getting ready to skyrocket their blend of bouncey emo rock into the stratosphere with their eagerly awaited debut full-length album Blue In The Dark due out October 12th on Pure Noise Records.  Since releasing the “Nothing Here Is Permanent” EP in September 2017, the quartet have quickly become one of the most buzzworthy bands in the underground pop punk scene.

Bearings’ debut album will hook you from the first song and have you singing along the entire time.  In an era where too many bands have resorted to a shorter record format with too much filler, Bearings are bringing back the “all killer, no filler” approach.

Each song on Blue In The Dark propels the record ahead and lyrically tugs on your heartstrings.  “Beautiful Places” tackles the feeling of not being enough, whatever that means to you, while “Stuck In A Doorframe” chugs along from the first note and is easily one of our favorites on the record.  Other stand out tracks on the records include the 90’s Alt Rock infused “Careless Clarity,” the dreamy, steel string acoustic “Tide,” and blissfully happy “Eyes Closed.”

Watch the brand new video for “Aforementioned” below.

Album Preview: Like Pacific – “In Spite Of Me”

Canada is churning out some of the best pop punk that we’ve probably ever heard.  Like Pacific are gearing up to drop their sophomore album “In Spite Of Me” on July 27th via Pure Noise Records.  When asked about the new record, singer Jordan Black said “When we wrote Distant Like You Asked, I felt super proud of writing an entire full length album but was very nervous. In Spite of Me means more to me than anything I’ve ever done creatively. We worked super hard writing and recording this album. The hardest I’ve ever personally worked.”

The new album has 10 brand new tracks including “Sedatives,” “Had It Coming,” and the title track “In Spite Of Me” which all showcase the high octane, in your face whether you like it or not energy of the new album.   “In Spite Of Me” is a natural progression both lyrically and musically for one of the hardest working pop punk bands in the scene today.
