Bay Area Melodic Pop Punk 5-Piece Greyed Out (Featuring Four Former Members of This Time Next Year) Releasing New 2-Song Single “Broken Like An Arrow”
We are totally into the new 2-song Single “Broken like an Arrow” from the San Francisco East Bay melodic pop punk band Greyed Out .
With a self-released EP under their belt, Greyed Out is excited to work with Negative Progression Records to put out their next 2-song Single, “Broken Like An Arrow,” adding more melody and extra octane to their notable sound. Pete Dowdalls’ soaring vocals in “Broken Like An Arrow” lift you up and leave you feeling like you’re gliding throughout the Bay Area’s hills and valleys. A mid-tempo ride that incorporates guitar riffs paying homage to a broader influence of late-80s/early-90s alternative.
“Broken Like An Arrow “ is both fast and fun all the qualities of a perfect song . Oh? Did we mention it’s so catchy we were singing along almost immediately.
B-side “No Dice” is shorter, faster, and louder. Honoring their melodic hardcore heritage, it’s a continuous blast of energy that will make fans stage dive, finger point, sing along, and explode on the dance floor until they are dripping in sweat at the end of this minute and a half banger. The energy in “No Dice” is enough to power a DeLorean to go back in time .
The Greyed Out single marks the second release for the recently relaunched indie label Negative Progression Records. Over the course of 18 years, NPR became known for discovering, developing, and supporting young bands, taking them out of the garage, and helping them hit the road.The label (which went on to sell over 100,000 records, host a stage on the 2003 Vans Warped Tour, and release 30 titles) became a trusted curator in the underground punk scene, bringing to the world a number of albums now regarded as classics. Now, after an 8-year gap where label founder Seth Hyman focused exclusively on his career as an attorney, NPR is back not to relive the past, but to stay true to its original mission and find your next favorite band.Of the recent label relaunch, Hyman says, “I started Negative Progression Records back in 1996 to help introduce the bands that I loved to the world. I started from scratch with no funding and just put everything I made back into promoting new bands. NPR was lucky to work with amazing musicians over the years and I’m looking forward to helping a new generation of emo-punk kids let it all out at the show.”
We are completely under the melodic spell of Greyed Out . Take them wherever your going this summer they are the perfect soundtrack.
