Melodic skate punk quintet The Sons of James have unveiled their new single, “All They Told You”.
With a mesmerizing marriage of 90s skate punk and contemporary leaning pop-punk, the band craft an appealing blend of raw and hook-heavy on their latest track.
Coming together with a passion for punk and hardcore, The Sons of James have had to tackle more obstacles than most. Their infectious brand of melodic punk is abundant with grit and candour, amidst the barrage of infectious hooks and high-octane delivery.
The moniker is a nod to fallen friend Kyle James, who was a member of an early iteration of the band. James’ loss both devastated and catalysed the reunion of old high school friends Steve Blair and Sean Attwater, who along with original vocalist Morgan Moore brought to life The Sons of James.
2020 debut album Traverse was recorded with Jesse Cannon (Brand New, Basement, The Cure). The record saw the rockers find their feet with a high-energy, late-90’s inspired brand of melodic skate punk. Listeners will be able to detect elements of The Offspring, Lagwagon and blink-182, in the band’s sound.
Shows across Florida have seen The Sons of James pick up a small but loyal army of fans across the region. A raft of support slots, including for Uncle Kraker, further solidified the band’s reputation as a highly diligent emergent in the Sunshine State.
Following on from June’s “Real Me”, new single “All They Told You” is a memorable marriage of punchy guitars and resonating choruses. The track is rooted in the now, whilst proudly displaying it’s throwback heritage.
