Oh the late 90’s pop punk scene… Brings back those memories and makes you feel old huh? Back in the 90’s/early 2000’s, pop punk had a distinctively different tone and playing style that the Warped Tour children are more accustomed to today. August Premier is a band that has faithfully retained that old sound. They have some history in the scene, such as being signed to Fueled By Ramen for their sophomore release Fireworks and Alcohol, being included on the infamous Plea For Peace/Take Action compilation, and opening for other more famous bands like Alkaline Trio and Allister.
This song is a preview of the release of their upcoming album Happy Miserable that comes out 3/27/12. They are looking to claim their place on the pop punk throne and we think that they rightfully should. “Worlds Away” has Tim Rogner from Allister, and there are two more tracks that have Tim on them. The album was produced, mixed and mastered by Matt Allison, who is best known for working on almost every Alkaline Trio album, The Smoking Popes, and more.
