Tuneful, modern punk rock is hard to come by these days without succumbing to the diabolical tortures inflicted by those three little letters, "E-M-O". In suburbs across America, band after band is Taking Back My Chemical Fallout, crying crocodile tears all over their overpriced guitars while the ladies up front muss their over-teased hair and pout for the cellphone camera paparazzi
In the freezing alleys of working-class Boston, however, an antidote may finally be germinating in the form of THE PERENNIALS. The band may be emotive, but they are anything but emo. They're the sneering face of a world-weary but hopeful generation, concerned with much more than navel-gazing and self-pity. Their enthusiasm and hooky songwriting have garnered praise from press nationwide, which has helped bring their reckless, manic stage show to opening slots for the Thermals, Japanther, World/Inferno, Die Mannequin and The Avengers, among others. The band's few recordings to date have received overwhelmingly excited responses from the internet and the airwaves alike, leaving many breathlessly awaiting the band's first official release
The members of the Perennials have experience playing everything from power-pop to gothic dance rock to old-school political hardcore, and you can hear it in every anthemic chord. The Perennials are not interested in going down swinging, sugar. They’re here to see the kids emerge united and victorious... and with your help they just might.
