DS Band Spotlight: Danvers

If you’ve never heard of Danvers, that’s more on us than it is on yinz (did we use that correctly?). We’ve been following these prolific Pittsburgh punks for awhile now and only recently remembered that we run a pretty big punk rock website which has a Band Spotlight section specifically created to highlight lesser known bands. Sorry about that fellas!

Even though the lads have been on our radar for eight years or so, we’ve always struggled with what shelf to put them on. They draw influence from a wide swath of subgenres including melodic punk, emo and skate punk and that variety comes through in their music. They classify their music as “Sad songs for skaters (skate/emo/skemo?)” and while we’re pretty mad that we didn’t come up with that, we do concede that it’s the most apt description of their sound. Don’t take our word for it though, give their latest single a spin (below) and let us know what you think!

The track is from their upcoming LP titled Like We Knew What It Meant which is set to release May 1st and can be pre-saved on Spotify here. Also, a lil birdy told us that there my be a pending DS Exclusive in our Drafts Folder for their next single, so keep an ear out for that! Until then, check out their phenomenal back catalog and give them a follow on Facebook to get more info on upcoming shows in your area!
