Winnipeg pop-punk band Bleed American will be releasing their second full length record “It Probably Isn’t” on January 5th, 2018 via Weatherman/Little Cowboy Records.
My favorite thing about pop-punk is the genre’s ability to combine powerful emotion with active, interesting, and often “fun” musicality. Bleed American has done this incredibly well on their previous releases, and this next record continues to follow that trend. The record opens with a short but “to-the-point” track that sets up the listener perfectly for what’s to come. I’m typically a fan of bands releasing EP’s, I’ve always found that a bands best can be found in shorter works (potentially due to my poor attention span), but this is one of the exceptions in which I found myself singing along instantly. At 10 tracks, the album doesn’t seem to drag-on at all and is incredibly solid the whole way through. It’s very clear in listening that these guys are very passionate about their art and always put their best foot forward. My personal favorites include: “Smile Lines”, “No Rush”, “Worth”, and “Comic Sans”. If you’re a fan of modern pop-punk, thoughtful lyrics and well-crafted song writing; this ones for you.
“It Probably Isn’t” can be found right now on Bandcamp, and will be released January 5th, 2018 on iTunes, Spotify, and Apple Music.
