RELEASES: The Modern Farewell

We’re incredibly excited to announce that we will be releasing the debut album from Cardiff’s The Modern Farewell on tape! Cardiff has definitely got it going on at the moment in terms of punk, and The Modern Farewell are no exception to the tradition. They’ve been a band for quite a while now, and hell, they already were great, but with this release the bar has definitely been raised with the addition of second vocalist/guitarist Neil Doran, adding a much more gritty edge to their sound. Imagine a cross between The Lawrence Arms and Saves The Day and you’re just about half way there. They sound equally as early 00’s pop punk, as they do a No Idea records band (maybe), and much like everything guitarist/vocalist Jon Greenwood does there’s some country / Springsteen vibes thrown in for good measure too.

This tape will mark our first Full Length album on WWSBD, which is nuts considering this will be our 14th release! The tape should be out at some point during October, so preorders won’t be up for a good while yet, but we were so excited we thought it would be a good time to post it now. In the meantime, check out “The Moon” from the album below, and get pumped!
