Long one of metalcore’s most commercially successful acts, Atreyu’s 2004 album The Curse helped launch the young band into stardom – just as the genre was beginning to overtake nu-metal as one of metal’s most popular subgenres. While the band has previously reached lofty heights with multiple top ten Billboard debuts (#8 for 2007’s Lead Sails Paper Anchor and #9 for 2006’s A Death-Grip On Yesterday, the band’s sophomore album has now reached a big milestone they’ve attained once before.
Sacramento based rock musician SsappyY found his way onto the rock scene in 2018, and since then has been building on his sound and platform. SsappyY style can be compared to that of those in the realm of Modern Baseball, Foxing, Tiny Moving Parts, ect. SsappyY approaches the rock genre with a more indie influence. Pieced together with fluid acoustic playing, and a very well rounded vocalist with a versatile range and you have SsappyY. His newest song “Cyanide Serenade” continues to build on the elements that make SsappyY stand out from the pack currently.
Sundressed was introduced to me as a band “addressing issues day-to-day like mental health, money problems, and more with their music.” Pitched as a band akin to Sorority Noise and Modern Baseball, I can recall a different time in my life when this wave of emo hit all the right emotional spots. I’m hoping to relive that with the band’s third LP, Home Remedy.
