Set Your Goals Discuss The Future Of The Band


Set Your Goals have finally released some news about the the future status of the band. After Matt started a new project, some fans have questioned whether SYG would be returning at all. Consequently, Matt took to Facebook to talk about what's in store for the band:

"On a related note, I've gotten a ton of angry messages asking for an answer on the status of the band. The truth is, we just don't know the future for certain and don't want to get people's hopes up or give any information that could end up being untrue. As a band, we are laying low for a while and busy individually with our adult lives. We haven't "broken up" per se, we're just focusing on other things for the time being. Here's what we've been up to:
-Dan got married and will be moving to Atlanta, GA, next month.
-Joe recently moved to Portland, OR, and plays in a band called Great Collapse
-Jordan returned to school and is pursuing film. He still needs another surgery before he can resume full use of his Achilles' tendons again, as far as I know.
-Mike started ambrosewoodworks.com 
and builds high end tables, and plays in U.S. Light Brigade and What's Eating Gilbert.
-Audelio had a daughter named Olivia, works for Glad Rags, and plays with What's Eating Gilbert.
-I run a record label called Calaveras Records and started a band called Chains. I also work for Snoop Dogg doing tour merchandising and production.

Hope that answers some of your questions.
-Matt"

Yes, you heard us correctly, The Movielife are reuniting and will be playing their first show in 2015. Today, Noisey released an exclusive article with the band in which they declared that they were reforming and will be playing their first show at the Irving Plaza next February. The band originally broke up in 2003 and got together for a brief reunion in 2011. However things are looking more hopeful this time with vocalist, Vinnie Caruana stating 'We’re not planning on doing anything but playing some shows, and when we’ve played those shows, maybe we’ll play some more. Brandon and I talk about playing music together all the time, and if nothing more, to keep the door open on this means we get to play together and we get to play with the other guys.' Even better, Caruana goes on to say ''I don’t think the UK would allow us to reunite and not come visit them. I think the hatred and frustration would implode the whole country, so we’re definitely going to come over there, I think'. Well holy shit,  this is one hell of an early Christmas present.

Up and Coming Pop Punk Bands | Layby


This week for our up and coming UK pop punk bands we bring to you Nottingham pop punks Layby. Forming in 2013, Layby recently released their first EP 'Bombsite'. If you're a fan of fast paced pop punk like Handguns, Forever Came Calling or Neck Deep definitely check them out. The band are also playing Nottingham Pop Punk Fest on the 3rd of January (find out more here). We asked the band some questions to find out a bit more about them...

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR BAND NAME?
Aaron (lead vocals) is a trucker and came up with the name after years of writing songs on those lonely nights in a Layby.

DESCRIBE LAYBY'S SOUND IN FIVE WORDS FOR SOMEONE WHO'S NEVER HEARD YOU BEFORE...
Heavy, Fast, Passionate, Pop Punk.

FAVOURITE TRACK FROM 'BOMBSITE' AND WHY? 
'More Than This' was the first song we wrote together and was the first song we released, so its the most special to us. We get a lot of positive feedback for that song too.

YOU'RE RECORDING YOUR SECOND EP, IS THERE ANYTHING YOU CAN TELL US ABOUT IT?
Over the last year, our first full year together as a band we've grown a lot closer as friends and as band mates. Writing together is getting easier and easier. We can really bounce off each other and enjoy producing music. Since 'Bombsite,' we've come a long way and we are really pleased with our progress.

The EP is going to be awesome to play live! When we play live we want it to be a more then just another gig. We're fans of getting the crowd involved, singalong, starting circle pits etc. 

We've worked really hard with our producer, James Hill at Steel City Studio in Sheffield to get this EP sounding massive. There are some sick breakdowns and gang vocals throughout the EP. The lead vocals have a punk rock edge with a lot of aggression and passion. There's honesty and sincerity in every bar. 

Aaron writes a majority of the lyrics and on this EP, he's been quite self-reflective. He wrote a ton of lyrics when the rest of the band were working on the music, and this led him to letting out a whole load of pent up feelings such as self-doubt and guilt. As a whole the EP has really helped everyone in the band get over something that was troubling them.

YOU'RE PLAYING NOTTINGHAM POP PUNK FEST IN JANUARY, WHAT IS ONE REASON WHY EVERYONE SHOULD GET DOWN TO THE MAZE AND CHECK IT OUT? 
Aaron from the band is throwing it to build an Unsigned Pop Punk Scene in Nottingham. So you should come down and support your local scene.

IF YOU COULD PLAY A SHOW WITH ANYONE IN THE WORLD WHO WOULD IT BE?
Wow, big question. I think it would be impossible for us all to agree on one. Let's say it would be a toss up between New Found Glory, Neck Deep and blink-182.

WHO INFLUENCES YOU THE MOST AS A BAND?
There's a massive age gap in this band, like 10 years, so as you can imagine the influence of the style of Pop Punk that we're most passionate about is extremely mixed. We're a pretty awesome balance of a kind of New Found Glory and State Champs sound!

WHAT ARE YOUR TOP FIVE FAVOURITE POP PUNK ALBUMS?
We've picked one each:
Aaron: blink-182 - Dude Ranch
Neal: blink-182 - Enema of the State 
Tim: State Champs - The Finer Things
Joe: The Wonder Years - The Upsides
Ash: The Story So Far - What You Don't See

Candy Hearts Interview



















Roughly two and a half weeks ago, Candy Hearts commenced on their first ever run of the UK joining Only Rivals, State Champs, The Story So Far and New Found Glory on the Pop Punk's Not Dead Tour. The band recently released their second record 'All The Ways You Let Me Down' which was produced by New Found Glory's very own Chad Gilbert. We sat down with vocalist/ guitarist Mariel Loveland to talk about her time in the UK, the new album and being one of the only girls on tour...

PPUK: HOW'S THE POP PUNK'S NOT DEAD TOUR BEEN GOING SO FAR?
Mariel: The tour's been really great. It's really exciting to see people from a different country singing our songs and liking our band, it's really cool.

PPUK: IS THIS YOUR FIRST TIME IN THE UK?
Mariel: Yeah.

PPUK: HOW HAVE YOU BEEN FINDING IT?
Mariel: It's been great. I'm really glad it's not too different from America. There are still things that are familiar and a lot of cities remind me of New England.  

PPUK: ARE THERE ANY WEIRD DIFFERENCES THAT YOU'VE NOTICED BETWEEN THE UK AND THE US?
Mariel: There are! There's one thing I've noticed that is really different that I was surprised by. I really love cheese fries so I ordered them and they we're like 'what are you talking about?' so I said 'can I have chips and cheese' and they gave me french fries with shredded cheese melted on it. In America we melt it on instead of letting the hot chips melt it. We melt it on already we just put it in the microwave or put nacho cheese over them. And also, I noticed that your Chinese food in Ireland comes with french fries instead of rice. Ours never comes with french fries. You just never get Chinese food with french fries.

PPUK: WHAT DID YOU MAKE OF YOUR TIME IN IRELAND, WAS IT NICE?  
Mariel: Yeah, it's really pretty, it seems very similar to here.

PPUK: HOW HAVE PEOPLE BEEN REACTING TO ALL THE WAYS YOU LET ME DOWN ON THE TOUR?
Mariel: People have been really awesome about it, there are those original fans that we've had for years and then there are always those people who are always like 'Oh they're a little bit pop in this record', but we went in a new direction we wanted to go and the reception has been really incredible.   

PPUK: WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE SONG FROM ALL THE WAYS YOU LET ME DOWN?   
Mariel: My favourite song I think is Something's Missing. It was a song that I've written for our EP actually and it just didn't feel right for the EP and we reworked it and put it on our record. It's like a slow song and Jordan from New Found Glory sings on it.

PPUK: WHAT'S IT LIKE SHARING A TOUR BUS? ARE YOU SHARING WITH THE STORY SO FAR AND STATE CHAMPS?
Mariel: Actually, two of us are with The Story So Far and State Champs ad two of us are with New Found Glory. They were all kind enough to let us ride with them because we couldn't afford to do it otherwise. It's been really fun! It's like summer camp, I never really went to summer camp, but like you all lay in bed and gossip about girly things. I guess for some reason we bring out that girliness (laughs). I don't know, we just gossip and watch movies. I don't know what it's like for the boys though. There's like a full boy bus, there are no girls on that bus.

PPUK: ABOUT THREE YEARS AGO YOU WROTE A PIECE ABOUT SEXISM IN THE PUNK/ ALTERNATIVE SCENE. DO YOU THINK ANYTHING HAS GOTTEN BETTER?
Mariel: I've noticed the more we stray away from the DIY scene that we where in when I wrote that, that actually the worse it is and I don't think it's because it's getting worse in general. I think that it's just worse in the mainstream than it is in like a smaller scene were everyone's just like friends and working together, you know? And like, [in] the big world it's really brutal and really disappointing and annoying.  

PPUK: HAS ANYTHING HAPPENED ON THIS TOUR THAT YOU WEREN'T COOL WITH?
Mariel: Umm, not really. Every once in a while someone will make a comment that bums me out but they don't mean anything by it. It's just like, you know, you're making that comment but you don't know what it feels like to be a different person than everybody else on the tour. You come here, you're a white man and you're like everybody else here and I come here and I'm different and people can sometimes treat me weird. You know, there's always something where people have like, they don't know how to live with a girl. Everybody's like a man with a girlfriend, a wife or something and it's like you know finding out how to live with a girl and be nice to them. It's just a little strange. 

PPUK: NOW THAT A LOT OF CELEBRITIES AND PEOPLE IN THE MEDIA ARE COMING OUT AS FEMINISTS AND REMINDING US ABOUT GENDER EQUALITY, DO YOU THINK THE ISSUE OF SEXISM WILL GET BETTER?
Mariel: I do, it was similar in the 90s. A lot of punk bands and actors and famous people were talking about feminism. The Spice Girls were the biggest example. They were all about girl power and that really inspired me when I was a child and I think now it's the same thing. The 90s are coming back and I think there are a lot of people who are kind of realising  that not that much has changed since then. Things have changed but not as much as they should have and I think a lot of people are noticing it and really working towards that.

PPUK: HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU LEARNT TO PLAY THE GUITAR AND SING?
Mariel: I was between 15 and 16 years old when I started playing guitar but I started writing songs before I knew how. I was in a band with my friends and they wouldn't let me play guitar and it was when I'd just picked it up, and no one really knew how. We were just pretending we knew how to play instruments and kind of figuring it out. I was the only one who actually learnt how to play.

PPUK: DO BANDS HAVE THEIR OWN MUSIC ON THEIR IPODS OR PHONES ?
Mariel: I do because sometimes I nervously listen to it like 'is this still good?', 'do I still like this or do we suck?', you know?. So yeah especially when we first get it in and it's our record for the first time. I want to test it in a few ways to make sure that it's the record I wanted to make. I listen to it when I'm driving or on the subway to make sure it's the kind of record I thought it would be.

PPUK: SO YOU HAVE ANY FUNNY, EMBARRASSING OR WEIRD TOUR STORIES?  
Mariel: We're a very quiet band, nothing really too crazy happens. There was something where we accidently left somebody behind when we took the ferry we had to go back and get them. Just from Ireland to here. That was pretty funny, not for who we left behind.

All The Ways You Let Me Down is out now. Get it here.

Six Time Champion | Expecting Honesty Review

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that the UK pop punk scene has somewhat exploded in the past few years. With Neck Deep, and recently ROAM, being signed to Hopeless records and As It Is being signed to Fearless, it would appear that pop punk is definitely back and stronger than ever. These bands have also paved the way for newer bands and it's awesome to see so many newer bands displaying their talents and building up a larger pop punks scene within the UK. One of these bands is Brighton's Six Time Champion who are about to released their new EP 'Expecting Honesty' on December 1st.


The EP starts off with Running Dry, one of the heavier songs from the EP. The song sets off Expecting Honesty with a fast tempo and catchy melody.  At times it almost mirrors Four Year Strong with guitar parts that chug along with an intense drum beat. The EP then leads on to Happiness is Emptiness and despite the pessimistic title, the song is a cheerful, upbeat and vibrant. Like Running Dry, it has a fast tempo and catchy melody. The song is a personal favourite and has elements of older pop punk while blending it in newer components.    

Up next is Expecting Honesty, the title track. The band have stated that the song is about ‘voicing a lack of tolerance for all the pointless dishonesty in life’ and that 'It pretty much sums up the entire theme of the E.P.’. The vocals on the track really do point to the theme of the E.P with them being vigorous and aggressive; enough to get the message across while being great to sing along to.

Dragging Feet is where the pace slows down. While it’s not as fast and intense as the other tracks, it still packs a powerful punch. It displays that Six Time Champion are able play around with the tempo of the songs without lacking an energetic sound. The closing track Separation picks up the pace again, with a return to the fast paced and authoritative drums and guitar. The chorus is resonant, and definitely one of the stand out ones from the E.P.

Overall, Six Time Champion’s new EP is an excellent showcase of everything that pop punk should be with fast paced, intense, drums, uplifting guitar parts, honest lyrics and melodic vocals. It's also pleasing to see another UK pop punk band doing a great job and  we can’t wait to hear more from these guys in the future.

New Neck Deep Album To Be Produced By Jeremy Mckinnon


Neck Deep have revealed that Jeremy Mckinnon, front man of A Day To Remeber, will be producing their new album alongside ex A Day To Remember member, Tom Denney, and Andrew Wade who has worked closely with A Day To Remember in the past. Jeremy had this to say about the album, which Neck Deep will start to record in five days time: "I was working with Andrew (Wade) on the new The Ghost Inside album (Dear Youth) when Tom Denney stopped by for a bit. He and Andrew were talking about having a meeting with Neck Deep about doing their next album. I overheard them, and pretty much forced them to let me be a part of the meeting. We met with Fil (Thorpe-Evans, bass) and we all hit it off. A few weeks later we heard back that the band had picked us! I think they’re one of the best new upcoming pop-punk bands in the world, and I’m pumped to make some music with them. They have their own sound, and it seems like they’re right on that edge of being a really big band. All it’s gonna take is a slam dunk record. I think they’ve got it in them'

Ben also had this to say: “When we started looking into recording album two we knew we wanted it to be bigger and better than Wishful Thinking. We wanted to step things up in a big way. Not only will we be stepping out of our comfort zone and finally recording outside of Seb’s (Barlow’s brother) bedroom, but we’ll be working with someone we’ve always looked up to. When we initially spoke to Jeremy about producing the album his enthusiasm was what caught us; not only is he someone who knows what they’re doing, and has achieved everything we could hope for, but he’s just as stoked on the album as we are, and that’s a huge thing"

Up and Coming Pop Punk Bands | Get Up Go




Ever feel like your life may be in need of a touch more easycore? Well hold there my friends because we may have the answer. Manchester based pop punks Get Up Go have recently released their EP 'Calm Seas Never Made Good Sailors' which is the perfect blend of pop punk and easycore for your listening pleasure. The band also recently released their first ever music video for the track 'Tonight In Stereo' which you can watch above. 

Check out our interview with Get Up Go and Calm Seas Never Made Good Sailor's below...

WHEN AND HOW DID YOU GUYS FORM?
We got together in Dec 2012. After being in bands together in the past we had not played together for a couple of years. We were all still friends, so when Pommy and Anders started writing music again we decided to start a new band. Sye was the obvious choice to sing and play bass, and Dion was the best drummer we knew.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR BAND NAME?
Anders came up with it after quite a heavy night at Pommy's house. After having a little too much to drink and then waking up on Pommy's kitchen floor, with Pommy's girlfriend standing over him looking pretty annoyed. Anders decided it was time to Get Up Go, he tweeted this as he left and later thought it could make a good name for the band.

YOU RECENTLY RELEASED CALM SEAS NEVER MADE GOOD SAILORS, FAVOURITE TRACK FROM IT AND WHY?
Collectively I think our favourite song is probably 'Wolves Amongst Us', when we went in to record it this song was barely a song, we wrote it as we went along, and it turned out better than we could have hoped for.

RECORDING OR PLAYING LIVE?
Recording is fun, seeing something you've worked so hard on come together and having something awesome at the end to show for it. But nothing beats the buzz of playing live and seeing people enjoy your music.

YOU'VE JUST RELEASED A NEW VIDEO FOR TONIGHT IN STEREO, TELL US A BIT ABOUT IT...
It's our first music video, we chose this song because it was kind of a surprise favourite from Calm Seas, we never thought it would sound as good as it does. The song is about partying basically, living in the moment, and worrying about things later, so the video reflects that. It's also got a retro gaming theme to it as well, you see through the eyes of the hero who's doing his best to navigate a party where the band is playing, something that gets him into a few 'sticky' situations.

IF YOU COULD PLAY A SHOW WITH ANYONE ON THE PLANET IT WOULD BE?
A few years ago I would have said  Blink 182 or New Found Glory, those guys are our idols, but now I think we would choose to play with State Champs. They're the new pop punk kids on the block and they are, in our opinion, one of the most exciting band to come along in years.

TOP FIVE FAVOURITE ALBUMS?
Blink 182 -Take Off Your Pants And Jacket
State Champs - The Finer Things
Brand New - Your Favourite Weapon
Four Year Strong - Rise Or Die Trying
New Found Glory - Self Titled
Sum 41 - All Killer No Filler
I know that's 6 but there you go :)
