The Seattle quintet—Tony Cappocchi [vocals], Ryan Bruce [guitar], Sean Rosario [guitar], Hans Hessburg [bass], and Kalen Anderson [drums] —strike an elusive balance between thrashed-up punk, pit-splitting hardcore, technical metal, and hook-y alternative. You could skate a half-pipe or throwdown on a festival field to it. Generating five million collective streaming under-the-radar, almost 10 million to-date, and receiving acclaim from Alternative Press and more, the group’s 2020 full-length debut, The World Is In Your Way [Mascot Records], floods the game with a fresh fire as it tosses and turns amidst emotional extremes.
“We don’t want to be too soft or too heavy,” says Tony. “We ride the line. We want to bring back the culture around D.I.Y., angry, aggressive, and fast music. This was the soundtrack to our youth. In our own way, we serve up that dish laced with metal, hardcore, and ear candy.”
