The Menzingers
The Menzingers
After releasing an especially lauded EP and touring much of 2009, Philadelphia's The Menzingers have been dubbed a "Band You Need To Know" in 2010 by Alternative Press and they have a brand new full length proving why. Chamberlain Waits may very well be the most important record released so far by Red Scare and on it The Menzingers combine many of the genre's styles (punk, hardcore, folk) to make for an undeniably infectious hybrid of hits. Produced by Matt Allison at Atlas Studios (Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, Lawrence Arms), this band and this new album are destined for great, great things.

Banquets
Banquets
Banquets approach to punk rock is a breath of fresh air in a crowded scene. While admittedly the band was originally formed for fun by a group of friends, Banquets' debut 7–inch, "This Is Our Concern, Dude.", flashes some impressive songwriting. That should come as little surprise though given the band's pedigree. These guys have paid their dues in previous bands like Let Me Run, The Stand In, and The Banner. Those past experiences have obviously served them well as the band's rustic brand of anthemic and melodic punk rock should have fans of The Gaslight Anthem and The Loved Ones drooling for more.
Ma Jolie
Ma Jolie
Ma Jolie threw themselves full force into the Philadelphia punk scene in 2012 with their debut release ...Compared To Giants. Combining the quick guitars and clever melodies of their post-hardcore namesake Bear vs. Shark with the raw energy of punk heros like Hot Water Music and Samiam, Ma Jolie revamp and revitalize two distinct styles of the late 90s. Merging their influences with a modern day sonic drive, Ma Jolie create a sound with the liveliness and diversity of their hometown.

With the release of Polars, Ma Jolie create a new level of power and urgency, each track growing in intensity and grit. Straining vocals and crafty guitar lines are fueled through their undeniable sense of vigor. Every phrase is forced into your head through energetic rhythms and catchy, likable melodies. Vocalist Mike Stoloski howls each word with a sense of purpose, shaping lines that stick with you. For Ma Jolie, Polars is a huge step forward into the powerful playing field of the punk rock scene.
