Polar Bear Club

Here's a band that's been requested a few times. I can't believe I haven't posted them on here earlier, actually. They could be one of my favourite modern bands, and have been for a long time now. They almost embody everything that the bands I post on here have, that's how awesome, representative, and diverse they are. I'm not sure why there's an introduction to this post, but it's certainly deserved, because Polar Bear Club are an amazing band.

Polar Bear Club are a five-piece post-hardcore/pop punk/indie band from Rochester/Syracuse, New York that formed in 2005. They signed to Bridge Nine in 2009. Since their inception, these guys have just been "killin' it". Everything they do is unbelievable. They're a powerful live band, an endless supply of mind-blowing recorded material, and super consistent in both. The band's sound is quite distinct. The vocals are harsh, but always carry strong melodies, and sometimes break into a more softly sung voice. The songs are super catchy, even with the melding of different instrumental bits. The band is certainly technically proficient, and often show it off, while remaining incredibly tight. They know how to play, how to write a song, and to fucking perform it. Their energy is unmatched. So check them out if you haven't, this is one band you don't want to miss out on.

  15. Oops, I just realized I wasn't logged in when I posted lol. Since you've provided me with a convenient place to find a shit load of stuff so I don't have to spend hours searching for it I think it's only fair I offer to give back. I have a bunch of stuff you may be interested in or may want to help round out some of your collections;

    Transit - [2011] Promise Nothing, [2011] Listen & Forgive (I noticed your link wasn't working the other day),

    Knuckle Puck - [2008] Knuckle Puck (Demo) (Low quality [192kbps] but I'm pretty sure I have the only copy on the internet since they took this off of their bandcamp for whatever reason)

    Major League - [2010] The Truth Is..., [2011] Variables, [2012] Hard Feelings, [2014] There's Nothing Wrong With Me
