One of the Dillinger Four dudes sent us music from a young band outta Minneapolis, and as usual, we groaned, rolled our eyes, and then grudgingly listened to the songs. WAIT A SEC. Holy shit… this band RIPS! (Super catchy and sounds like The Copyrights playing "Dude Ranch"). A new band with a great demo… is this a trap? We reached out right away and basically demanded that they join us at Red Scare.
They’re called Tightwire, and they’re giving you 13 self-recorded blasts on this debut album entitled, Six Feet Deep, mixed by Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, Dead To Me, The Menzingers). The two singers, Paul and Tane, offer the kinda dark/poppy jams you would expect from salty MPLS punks: love songs, drinking songs, angry songs, drinking songs, funny songs, drinking songs, etc. This should go down as one of the best pop-punk albums of the year, and you can expect lotsa tours from this Midwest trio as they already have shows booked with Dillinger Four and Off With Their Heads.
