Once again Canada asserts its dominance in the melodic/skate punk scene by churning out yet another awesome new up and comer for us to keep on our radars. Family Meeting is a Toronto 5 piece consisting of scene veterans from bands like Overtime Heroes and IVS, and proudly claiming to be 1/5 Australian. The band just wrapped up recording their debut EP “No One Cares ‘Til Your Dead”, which from the musicianship and production quality feels more like a 3rd or 4th release from a tenured Fat Wreck band than a self funded first effort. At least that’s my impression after listening to the album’s first song “It’s Turbo Time” 5 times in a row. If you dig gang vocals and tight, technical dual guitar riffage than I suggest you check them out here.
