Tsunami Bomb “The Spine That Binds” Album Review

The time has finally come. Tsunami Bomb’s first studio release in fifteen years has released today. For an early self-admittance, I didn’t get into the band’s music until years after they had broken up in 2004. I know, because I remember staying back in the stands of Peoria Sports Complex, for Warped Tour 2003, when a high school friend tried to get me to watch them. I have course corrected in that time, digging into their catalog and making amends. It helped that they compiled some of their greatest hits…

Putting the Politics In Punk

I’ve seen it mentioned that with the current political climate, starting from 2016’s election, it would bring on a new generation of great political punk. However, I’ve always felt that was a misnomer. Punk bands have continued to rail against the political parties and policies. It is part of what is rooted in the beginnings of the genre and continues to permeate the songs from many punk bands to this day. It is scarier that songs from the infancy of the genre stand pretty accurate to modern day politics. That…

I Know You Well

Co-headlining tours are becoming more frequent with time. It is two large or popular bands coming together, alternating headliner spot each night. These tours are, most of the time, of the same genre and fan bases. Though one outlier comes to mind when Anti-Flag and Reel Big Fish teamed up. However, even in that case it brought a killer show and introduced me to Pkew Pkew Pkew. So when it was announced Face to Face and Lagwagon were doing this thing, I was ecstatic. Of course, even with two known…

A Night of Storytelling

Authenticity goes a long way. It is being true to oneself. It is not giving another version of you in front of others. For some people, they have a public version and a private version of themselves. This is the case with musicians, where the lyrics written are not always about oneself. They may be telling a story or creating a persona different from their own. With Frank Turner, he puts himself into his lyrics and is true to who he is during any performance. His latest visit in a…

If you’re lucky, sometimes things come together in a perfect way. Perhaps it is just that right sound with a band out of the gate. Maybe it is getting to see your favorite band reunite in original form.
