That's the calling card of Toronto pop punk group Like Pacific. Since 2010, the band has been developing its own unique space amongst its peers in pop punk's newest wave, channeling anger and frustration in lieu of sadness and defeatism. The lyrical sentiments are met by the band's sound, borrowing from early 2000's emo-drenched pop punk but with their own twist of hardcore ferocity.
Now, with the release of their self-titled EP on New Damage Records and Pure Noise Records, the Toronto five-piece plans to bring their angst-filled, anthemic songs to anyone who will hear them. Like Pacific has already gotten off to a fierce start in 2015, including tours with the likes of Vanna, A Loss For Words, Pentimento, and a festival appearance at Southeast Best. All this to be done before the year is even half over.
The band's tireless work ethic and unique spot in a crowded genre take centre stage in watching their growth, with their debut full length record on the horizon.
Story Untold (formerly known as Amasic) is a pop punk quintet based in Montreal, Canada that was founded in 2012.
Bearings was formed in 2014 by a group of college friends in a music industry program. They wanted to put what they'd learned to use while finding a creative outlet for the many stories they had to tell. Now, with their first two releases "Higher Ground" and "Home Is..." under their belt, the group are ready to come out swinging.
Bearings' sound shows clear ties to the titans of punk rock but is aware of its place in time. Listeners can draw clear similarities to classic pop punk acts like Blink 182 and Descendents, but Bearings bring that iconic sound into 2017, but with a modern indie melody and rock dynamic that is all their own.
The follow-up to their first two EPs was the recent release of their single "North Hansen" and accompanying music video. Both were met with praise from fans and press alike, including a feature in Alternative Press' roundup of the 10 best new songs of the week. With an EP on the way and upcoming tours, Bearings are hitting the ground running in 2017 and show no signs of stopping.
