#201: Benjamin Harper talks 20 Years of Yellowcard‘s ”One For The Kids”

The big wave of Yellowcard’s mainstream debut album Ocean Avenue all started with their previous album, One For The Kids. Recorded and released in 2001 through Lobster Records, One For The Kids quickly helped Yellowcard land a major label contract with Capital Records in 2002. Ocean Avenue would take the world by storm just one year later in 2003. Founding member, Benjamin Harper, joins us on this episode of Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast to talk about how Lobster Records has remixed and remastered One For The Kids to celebrate the album’s 20th anniversary. It’s available on all streaming platforms this Friday, December 17th, 2021. You can pre-order a vinyl copy here.

Much Love,

My friend, Dave Gomez, has not been on Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast since episode 28 in 2017 when he was in a band called, Night Terrors. A lot has happened with Dave since then.

#198: Caitlin Edwards of Bumsy and The Moochers

Happy Thanksgiving! Time to trade in that turkey leg for a slice of pizza. I’m excited to welcome back Caitlin Edwards of Chicago ska punk band, Bumsy and The Moochers. A lot has changed since the first time she was on Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast back in September 2019. Including Bumsy and The Moochers getting signed to Sell The Heart Records! Caitlin and I talk about the band’s latest single, “Cathy Ann”, which is a fun song about her mother.

I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you know how thankful I am to have your love and support!

Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast #195: World War Me

The last time I talked with World War Me was in October of 2020 via Zoom. Now members Stephen Krypel and Teejay Burkett have joined me in person for the full Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast experience! I’m happy they did too because Stephen was able to perform three acoustic songs for us. One of the songs is unreleased. How about that! 

World War Me has plans to release new music in 2022. 

Much Love,

Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast #193: A Tiger Made of Lightning

When I was first introduced to A Tiger Made of Lightning in 2020, the project consisted of just one member named, Mike O’Leary. Now fast forward one year later and Mike was able to form a full band around him! Mike joins us on this episode of Pop-Punk & Pizza to discuss the release of their debut EP, It’s Chaos, Be Kind.

Thank you for the reminder that we all need to remain kind in the chaos.

Much Love,
