Lovvers debut release with Wichita comes in the form of a 7 song CD/LP entitled ‘THINK’, released on September 29th. Clocking in at just under 13 minutes, it gives you the perfect amount of time you need to piss off your boss, quit your job and throw out those shitty records you keep getting told to buy. Lovvers are a strange mix of music’s forgotten/blank generation, re-calling the spirit of Darby Crashes’ Germs, the weirdness of Flipper, Wipers style pop and the careless attitude of The Replacements; at one show a girl was so confused/annoyed that she wrote to KERRANG! describing this music as highly offensive, wanting to erase them from her mind

When most bands tell you they’ve had to “grow up in public,” they’re talking about getting pushed into the spotlight before they’ve had a chance to find their voice. But for Whittier, California, trio The Dares, who started playing when twin brothers and co-founders Ben (guitar/lead vocals) and Matt (drums/vocals) Peterson were all of 8 years old, the idea was a bit more literal. These boys-to-men literally grew up in public, forming a band when their peers were still dabbling in youth-league sports and landing a major-label contract with Jive Records before they’d even finished high school. Today, as the trio’s powerhouse spin on pop-punk tradition is making clear, The Dares are ready and able to grow even bigger. Make sure to check them out
