Pop-Punk & Pizza Podcast #154: A Few Too Many

Today, we are taking a trip across the pond to Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom to talk with a band called, A Few Too Many. It was truly an honor to talk with them earlier this month because I thoroughly believe they are going to be one of the next biggest pop punk bands to come out of the UK. Members Bobby Hardy, Danny Freeman, and Luke D’Alton join me for this one. Their new single, “History”, is due out Friday, March 5th via Lost Music Collective.

Much Love,

Jacques LaMore

This episode marks the return of Chicago pop punk band, When The Sun Sets, to the podcast. The band first appeared on Pop-Punk & Pizza Episode 67 in 2018. A lot has changed since then for the band, including new members and their signing to Lost Music Collective. They drop a new single This Friday, February 26th called, “Inside Out”. It was fun catching up with members Zack, Tyler, and Harrison!

#135: Erick Droegmoeller & Vinnie Fiorello of Lost Music Collective

You may have read, heard, or seen the name, Lost Music Collective, floating around in the pop-punk scene the last year or so. What is it? I had the same question when I first saw the name. I eventually learned that it’s a new record label run by, Erick Droegmoeller and Vinnie Fiorello. Erick is known for his management company, Word Is Bond.  Vinnie, famous for being a co-founding member of Less Than Jake, left the band in 2018. However, he still runs Paper + Plastick Records and has a new band called, The Inevitables. Both Erick and Vinnie sat down with me just after Thanksgiving via Zoom to talk about how they came together to form Lost Music Collective and what their overall mission is for the label. So far, they have recruited some impressive young bands to their roster including, Goalkeeper, Rival Town, Rematch, and Yearbooks.

Lost Music Collective’s first vinyl release is available for pre-order now:

Tracklist:

Goalkeeper – “Graveyard”
Yearbooks – “I Don’t Think You’re Okay Anymore”
Who Saves The Hero? – “Days”
Rival Town – “The One Who Pushed”
Rematch – “Words That Rhyme With Liar”
When the Sun Sets – “Sunflower”
Hometruths – “ Shimmers”
FRND CRCL – “Joyride 2.0”

#129: FRND CRCL

You know how you always want to go back in time and rewrite your past? Well, the cool thing about music is that you can do that! FRND CRCL of New Jersey did just that with their latest single, “Joyride 2.0”. It’s a reimagined version of “Joyride” from their debut album, “Immuniversity”, released in 2017. Dom, Adam, Zac, and Aaron tell me about the significance behind the song and how they plan to keep developing their sound into 2021.

FRND CRCL plan to drop a Christmas song called, “Fit For a King”, via Lost Music Collective on December 18th. Pre-save the song here!

#126: Hometruths

It’s always a special treat when I get to talk with bands from other countries. The United Kingdom’s pop-punk scene has been growing quite a bit in recent years. The band, Hometruths, of Newcastle are a testament to that statement. Lead vocalist/guitarist, James McLackland, and Bassist, Ross Gilroy, stayed up late to talk with me about their newest single, “Shimmers”, released via Lost Music Collective. James and Ross explain the song is about the negative impact social media can have on our mental health. Plenty of other cool stories in this conversation as well. Thanks for loosing some sleep for me guys!
