Connecticut pop-punk rockers American Thrills will release their 2nd EP, titled "Old Things" on April 16, 2021 via New School Records. The band play a unique blend of upbeat punk rock with hooks for days and a sprinkle of Midwest emo, and features members of The Tired and True (Eulogy Records) and Shut up and Deal. Their self titled EP released in 2020 is a great starting point, and the new songs from Old Things continue in similar fashion, with high energy, melodic, hook-laiden emo-tinged pop punk, meant to be played loud. The new EP was recorded with Chris Teti (The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die/Hostage Calm) and will also have a limited vinyl and cassette run. Fans of The Menzingers, The Gaslight Anthem, Iron Chic, Broadway Calls and the likes should enjoy this brand of anthemic and melodic shout along pop-punk with undeniable hooks. Should be great in a small live setting once live music safely resumes. Check out the single "Discount Casket" below if you don't believe me, along with the final track on the EP titled "Wandering" which features the added bonus of Andy Jackson from Hot Rod Circuit fame on guest vocals.
