Today for our up and coming pop punk bands post we're bringing to you Guts who hail from Las Vegas. The band are about to release their new LP Matches Malone via Don't Leave California Records on April 14th. If you're a fan of fast-paced, up beat pop punk like Handguns or Forever Came Calling, Guts is definitely a band you should check out...
WHERE ARE YOU GUYS FROM?
We are from Las Vegas, NV USA
TELL US ABOUT YOUR UPCOMING LP 'MATCHES MALONE'...We had so many small releases in past 2 years that we wanted to bring them all together to make them more accessible. We also were on tour when we released the Matches Malone EP so we didn’t really get a chance to have a good release for it. We recorded a few new tracks and added them to the EP and a split we did with Anchorless(Ca) and now are releasing it thru ‘Don’t Leave California Records’.
HOW DID YOU FORM?
We were actually in a different band at the time. I [Kenny], was writing that other bands next album and I took a break and wrote a pop punk song.
That is how our song ‘Hesitation’ came. I then sent that to to our singer, Sean, and he wrote lyrics and it actually came out really good so we quit the other band to pursue Guts.
