Pop-punk for literal days.
Rivalling The Maine’s and Waterparks’ 2018 Aussie tour for the best pop-punk tour to look forward in the coming year, both Chicago’s Knuckle Puck and the UK’s Roam will be teaming up together when they return to our shores this summer.
After all, the summer season and pop-punk tunes go to together about as well as the Gallagher brothers and sheer rockstar arrogance do. Which is to say, very fucking well!
Coming down together for now-sold-out 2018 Unify festival next January, these angsty, catchy pop-punk pals will both be performing fan favourites and new cuts from their respective new records. The last time that Jarod Alonge’s favourite band to have beef with was here was when they supported The Wonder Years on their 2016 tour and the quintet will be pulling out new tunes like ‘Double Helix‘, which is culled from their latest album, ‘Shapeshifter’ (out now through Rise Records). And you can also expect Roam to play some new songs as well, such as their most recent single ‘Alive‘, which is taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Great Heights & Nosedives‘, which drops on Friday, October 13th via Hopeless Records.
