Already having earned their stripes on the road supporting some HUGE bands (Enter Shikari, for one), Fearless Records’ The White Noise are fast becoming one of Warped Tour’s must-see bands. Like one concertgoer who attended the first date of Warped relayed to me, “I don’t know how to describe this band, they’re heavier than a rock band but not quite post-hardcore, and they sound huge“. The band’s album, AM/PM, drops this Friday the 23rd.
This album is full of choruses and riffs that should dominate active rock radio upon release, especially the re-recorded version of “Picture Day”, lead single “Bite Marks”, and one of the best song titles you’ll hear all year long in the Jawbreaker-referencing “24 Hour Revenge Therapy”. This is rock and post-hardcore with plenty of bite, but also a melodic/pop tinge to it for new fans to sink their, well, teeth into.
There’s always dozens of choices for fans to check out at Warped Tour – you’ll be kicking yourself if The White Noise isn’t one of them. Every single year, there seems to be one or two bands who end up owning the smallest stages. Silent Planet did it last year, and it’s The White Noise’s time to shine. Sharpen your teeth.
