News: Old Neon Drop Emo/Indie Anthem ‘Keep Your Misery’

Pittsburgh rockers Old Neon have dropped a new single. “Keep Your Misery” is out now, and brings together pop punk and alternative rock influences.

Vocalist Drew Sipos explains: “‘Keep Your Misery’ is about how limited our time is on Earth and how important it is to not waste that time on relationships that don’t give you what you want.”

Sipos continues: “Sometimes it’s better for everyone to just walk away so we can make room for the people and things that make it all worth while. It’s urging you to go live your life while you can because for all we know, maybe this is all there is.”

Old Neon have quickly established themselves as one of Pittsburgh’s hottest exports, fusing contemporary indie rock with ’00s-influenced emo and infectious pop punk sensibilities.

With barely two years’ tenure, the Steel City outfit have shown both graft and craft, with a consistent output of new music since their debut single “Highlights.” The track featured on last year’s debut album Can’t Fucking Wait alongside the the thoughtful “Warmer Weather” and punk-lined “Jumpstart.”

Having just been announced for Four Chord Music Festival this summer, Old Neon join a stacked bill including Something Corporate, A Day To Remember, and The All American Rejects. With new single “Keep Your Misery,” they show why they’re deserving of such esteemed company.

The track is 2024’s first taste of the quintet’s gilt-edged sonic offerings, an immersive, cathartic display of modern alternative, with intricate guitars and glistening hooks, cutting through the grounded emo tones.
