thanks everyone! thats just how my voice sounds when you are singing loud enough for the crappy PA in someones basement so thats how i do it in the studio too.

azwel, there is a guitar solo in it...and it doesnt have a lot of notes.

i think we only have one more song to post for you all until we get back into the studio. but we got lots more of the same coming and even another band with the singer/guitar player and the drummer that is slower and less gruff. but not by much. (republican dick army for those of you with ambition)

sometimes the lead vocalist does the backgrounds, live and sometimes in the studio its the bass player. once it was our producer friend.

we tried to do the dual layer vocal thing with our first EP (see our first 6 songs on here). the guy who did it (justin perkins: screeching weasel, riverdales, and a ton more) is really good at his job but we felt that it took away some of the edge that we have live. so now we record live in the same room (amps isolated) with vocal overdubs.

unklespaz. our next uploaded song will be the slowest one we have. i think it breaks the 2 minute mark as well. and its got a solo! which are all kinds of transgressions for the transgressions.

thanks for the feedback everyone! i know this is not our strongest song, but we like playing it cause its not a 1-4-5 progression.
Baby I love you but I need someone to talk to abou

Thanks everyone! I think we have gotten better too. The first 6 songs i posted was from the 2nd time we played together. i put a lot of thought into production aspects while still keeping it true to minimalist pop punk. i got about 4 more new songs to post up. hope you guys likethose too! hit us up on facebook or youtube transgressions wayward council for live action!

I'm glad you all like it! I think our use of "too much"/heavy distortion in pop punk is one of the things that sets us apart. We are strong believers in fantastic tone (and we all have backgrounds in hardcore). I'm uploading a new song now!

hahaha, right? our thoughts are: if you dont have good tone, you dont have anything! especially when its the same 3 chords over and over. you gotta blow em away somehow!

thanks again for eveyone's feedback positive, or negative. i enjoy this website because people say more than "you suck" or "i like it! : )"

conquistador, please read our profile. it clearly states: "Yeah, it's been done before but we do it different." nakedbeach, thanks for your input!! paul, if we put out a 12" it will be played at 45. and we will never feel the need to conform to the music industries standard of how long an album should be. our EP which these songs are on (all 6 of them) is less than 7 minutes. it will be coming out on Rally Records this year digitally and on CD

thanks to everyone for your support and criticism. we do not have anything else recorded at this time, so it will be a while until you hear my voice again.

glad you guys like it. this was the first song i wrote for the band. POOLHOUSE: it was only half as long but the OG drummer wanted me to make it 2x as long. that may explain some of the halfassed lyrics. ALSO! big update. our EP is getting released by Rally Records, so check them out!

richie, we play it a lot faster live. the drummer learned this song in the studio (he learned everything else the day before). and yeah, the chorus is too long. initially it was 2 time s the 2nd and 3rd, but because it was easier to teach as 4-4-4-4-4 or whatever, we did what you hear here. Unklespaz, im gonna make a profile for our not punk bands soon. we have an awesome jazz trio sometimes.
