San Diego pop-punks The Bombpops have released a music video for their new song “Be Sweet”. The song pays tribute to the late Teenage Bottlerocket drummer Brandon Carlisle who tragically died in late 2015. Watch it below.
Vocalist Jen Razavi had this to say:
“’Be Sweet’ is an homage to our dear friend, the late Brandon Carlisle of the band Teenage Bottlerocket. Back in 2010, we were partying in a hotel room with Brandon and Ray Carlisle. There was a guitar in the room and Brandon was showing us an idea he had for a song. He had written it for his wife, but he told us we should play it and change the lyrics to ‘getting rad with my boyfriend.’ He wrote down all the lyrics on four sheets of hotel notepad paper. Since then, the melody and the chord progression were forgotten, but I still had the lyrics. So we wrote our own version of the song in the studio and used every single lyric that Brandon had written down.”

We imagine that Wednesday night shows are hit or miss in most places, but in Los Angeles, the prospects are even more bleak. However, every once in awhile, there comes a lineup so good that even Humpday can’t put a damper on the turn out. This was one of those shows, drawing an impressively sized crowd that even drew fellow punk artists, with members of Get Dead and True Rivals among the audience. Hell, Dying Scene even had two staffers in the bouse for this one! Read the review and check out the photo gallery (nearly a month after the show…really, AP?) from this incredible mid-week performance below!

The Fear of Missing Out, or FOMO, is a pseudo-psychological phenomenon that describes the anxiety that one feels when they’re worried about not being present when something big or fun goes down. It’s likely a side effect of the rise of social media and our ability to consistently see and read about every fun thing that we weren’t there to witness. The Fear of Missing Out is also the title of The Bombpops’ newest collection of songs.
The latest band to make the jump from Red Scare to Fat, The Bombpops are armed with sunny hooks and sugary choruses, going all out on their first album for the label, which also happens to be their long-awaited debut full length album. The final result is a short and sweet, tightly crafted Orange County pop punk record.
Most of the album hits all the right notes you want to hear from Californian pop punk: catchy choruses, harmonized vocals, lyrics about enjoying the weather, it’s all here. First single, “CA. in July” epitomizes a lot of what people expect to hear from a punk band out of Southern California. That’s not to say that it’s all Green Day worship here: “Sweet for Sorrow” with its melody and vocal harmonies is reminiscent of Bad Religion, if Bad Religion played pop punk. “Jerk” takes a Weezer-ian approach; the verses have a heavy, kind of grungy sound while it’s chorus is straight up pop, and “I Can’t” is a thrashy in-your-face hardcore number that lasts all of 54 seconds. The Bombpops might not be the first pop punk band to show range and combine outside influences with their sound, but they do it in such a charming way and they easily join the ranks of the bands that did it before them.
Fear of Missing Out was released in February 2017, and astute readers may notice that this review has come a few months after then. One might even think that I, the reviewer, missed out on this record when it first came out and I’m only playing catch up now. “FOMO” might be a real thing that people feel, but fortunately when it comes to recorded music you can always go back and hit “repeat” as many times as you need. There’s no missing out here.
