Welcome to AltCorners' Pop Punk Music Archive!

Young Culture: Self-Titled album review

With this brand new, self-titled full length, Young Culture have issued one of the most diverse and challenging records I’ve heard from the alt-rock scene in quite some time.

Neck Deep ‘All Distortions Are Intentional’ review

If All Time Low’s Nothing Personal got criticism for being too pop and not punk enough, All Distortions Are Intentional should definitely get the same treatment.

The Homeless Gospel Choir ‘This Land Is Your Landfill’ album review

While I appreciate the sentiment in 'This Land Is Your Landfill', the new full length from The Homeless Gospel Choir, there's very little musical value in these thirty four minutes.

The Used ‘Heartwork’ album review

It seems these days that The Used are happy to push musical boundaries rather than shoot for a comeback album. After the (unwarranted) flop of 2017 double album outing The Canyon, a lot of fans seemed to give up on McCracken and co.. Two new singles 'Blow Me' and 'Paradise Lost, a poem by John Milton' reinstated some people's love for the band, but the people who will truly adore this masterpiece are those who aren't looking for an early 2000's sounding The Used, but those who are looking to see the band take on board everything they've learned from their previous seven outings.

Review: Silverstein’s ‘A Beautiful Place To Drown’

After twenty years you'd expect the fusion of pop punk and post-hardcore that is Silverstein's trademark to have grown tired. That's not the case, though. In fact, it's quite the opposite.

Bandaid Brigade – I’m Separate

Punk supergroup, Bandaid Brigade release their debut album “I’m Separate” on the 21st January. The architects are members of Pears, Street Dogs and The Gamits collectively, Zach Quinn vocals, Brian Wahstrom, keys and vocals, Paul Rucket drums and guitarist Chris Fogal. The album was recorded in Denver and co-produced by Fogal himself.

Album Review: Bellevue Days – It Can’t Possibly Go Wrong Ever

Croydon rockers "Bellevue Days" released their long-awaited debut album, It Can't Possibly Go Wrong Ever on the 22nd November 2019, just in time for Christmas.

ROAM announce 2020 UK tour

ROAM are heading out on their Smile Wide UK tour part 2!

Another mega tour!

Bowling for Soup and Simple Plan team up for a hella mega tour!

Junior ‘Beautiful Life’ album review

Junior have spent two years writing 'Beautiful Life', recording it across three studios, with the simple goal of pushing out the boat both with their own sound, and with the messages they can get out in their songs. They work long and then work hard, and it's safe to say that they've proved they're not just another pop punk band.

The Bottom Line to support Zebrahead on tour

The Bottom Line will be joining Zebrahead on tour!

Like Giants announce first shows

Pop-punk seems to be neverending these days but Like Giants are using their hard-hitting yet soft, vocal melodies, heavier riff-driven tracks to set themselves apart. They have now announced their first ever shows so if you want to see them in person, you knwo where to go.

Sunsleeper – You Can Miss Something & Not Want It Back

Sunsleeper's new album 'You Can Miss Something & Not Want It Back' is a bold statement, both in title and music. They don't shy away from the emo label, readily embracing their influences on the new record. But the fact is, anything could happen on an emo revival album.

ROAM and With Confidence announce co-headline UK tour

Eastbourne pop-punks Roam have teamed up with their Australian counterparts in With Confidence for what is set to be one hell of a wicked co-headline tour. The dates run through the end of September. ROAM Co-headline UK Tour with With Confidence: September 20 Southampton 1865 21 London O2 Academy Islington 22 Bristol Thekla 23 Birmingham O2 Institute2 […]

Weatherstate – Born A Cynic

It seems these days I write the word 'punk' in practically every piece I write, be that punk of the pop variety, of the hardcore variety, or of the not very good variety. 'Born A Cynic', Weatherstate's first full length, ticks the boxes of the first two.
