Indie Pop-Punk Band/Trio Super Prime Release 2nd EP

Super Prime promoThe Boston based 3-piece pop-punk band known as Super Prime are currently promoting their second EP, “Sun’s Out, Gun’s Out“. The album dropped October 8th and was featured on AOL Music. They have already been signed onto bills with resident pop punkers Yellowcard, Hawthorne Heights, Patent Pending, Twin Berlin and Marky Ramone of The Ramones.

Super Prime is the epitome of this generation’s pop punk genre, giving fans of Blink 182, The Wonder Years, Green Day and Jimmy Eat World something to get excited about. The band’s music combines the best elements of early pop punk and nineties angsty emo rock with their quick and catchy guitar riffs, hard-driving drums, Billy Joe Armstrong-esque singing and gang-vocal inducing lyrics.

Borrowing from the frenetic pop punk and angsty emo of the nineties, Super Prime has evolved to epitomize today’s pop punk genre: their music gets right up in your face, and then refuses to get out of your head.

Formed while attending Berklee College of Music, Super Prime consists of Austin Bond (vocals, bass), Adam Newall (vocals, guitar), and Marcus James (drums). The band fiercely stepped out into the Boston rock scene in the spring of 2011, mere moments after their inception. In under a year they recorded and released their first EP, “Super Prime”.

Drugs, brawls and rock ‘n’ roll: A chat with Unwritten Law

ulFrom backstage drugs to onstage fights, Southern California pop punk outfit Unwritten Law has had its share of drama since forming in the early ‘90s outside of San Diego. That drama has translated into different lineups throughout the band’s nearly 20-year run, but two core members have remained constant – vocalist Scott Russo and guitarist Steve Morris.

In anticipation of their poolside show Friday night at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Russo opened up about violence among the band members, losing touch with Blink-182 and, inevitably, growing up.
