South Carolina pop-punk / post-hardcore band Brigades releases their new EP “True Blue”! Coming as the band’s fifth release, it’s the first new material since their 2015 album Indefinite (Pure Noise Records).
Self-released, “True Blue” presents a dynamic collection of six upbeat tunes, showcasing the band’s progression and maturity, both in writing and delivery. A tight-knit collection of addictive pop-punk melodies are blended with the intensity of post-hardcore rawness. The lyrics provide a front-end hook to grab listeners in – and have them singing along in no time.
On this release, Vocalist Darren Young shared:
“True Blue definitely stands out from our other records. Because I feel it’s something new and refreshing compared to how depressing and dark things got on Indefinite. I think in some parts of True Blue it shovels back to the roots between my writing for The Last Laugh and Crocodile Tears, then is mushed together with this new aesthetic that was created from everything that happened. Making this transformation now is more exciting than it would have been for a direct release right after Indefinite.”
