TLE are fast, aggressive, dad punk, and their new video for “Everyone Else Is A Shitty Parent,” out now via Revival Recordings, is just what the world needs right now.

This is what TLE stands to bring to the music scene. The pop punk group from Raleigh, NC are made up of Shawn Milke (vocals/guitar), Nick Onorato (guitar/backing vocals), and Drew Bowie (bass). After many years away from the band, Shawn and Nick found that they had new material to put into the reincarnation: being a dad.

From writing about PTA meetings, taking kids out to eat, and trying to get the kids to bed, TLE brings a new exciting spin to an already beloved genre. With some hard-hitting instrumentals and catchy lyrics, TLE hope to garner the attention of fans who have similar feelings about being a parent and partner in raising kids in this day and age. Also, for their own kids to have fun, upbeat music to rock out to as well!

“Now more than ever, there is a feeling of unease amongst parents everywhere,” says Nick Onorato. “‘Everyone Else is a Shitty Parent’ addresses those feelings and conversations while pointing out that, just because others may parent differently than you do, doesn’t mean they are wrong. We can all stand to learn from each other in this world, and having an open mind, listening to others’ experiences, and making the best decisions with the information you have can help make our conversations and interactions peaceful, happy, and even special. Besides, our kids are way more awesome than yours anyway, so suck it up, buttercup.”
“I’d just like to add that if you are reading this, writing this, or thinking this, and you are a parent, there is a 100 percent chance that you are shitty at it,” adds Shawn Milke. “And more importantly, dads rule, kids drool. Literally.”
