It's been almost ten years since Goldfinger released a new album. Well, good news for fans, because this Friday, the Los Angeles band will be releasing a brand new album, titled The Knife.

The album begins will a real pop-punk banger, A Million Miles. This track has just what you'd expect from an epic pop punk tune - relatable lyrics, a catchy chorus to sing along to and your typical "whoah" moments. That, and it adds in a little bit of ska, just so we know they haven't abandoned their ska sound either. I think the only thing I find disappointing is that it's a little too short, especially when it gets me hyped up for more at one point. However, that doesn't let the track down whatsoever. It's still a great listen and introduces the album perfectly.

Get What I Need follows more of the ska punk style. Immediately, we get the catchy and upbeat brass isntruments to start the track. However, the pop punk sound returns when the chorus hits, and returns to ska once again when the next verse arrives. It's so cool how both styles are mixed together in this one, particularly the ska. For example, if this was just a regular pop punk track, it would still sound good, but wouldn't really be anything new or special. Ska is hardly around nowadays, so mixing the two together really makes for a fun listen.
