Alkaline Trio Mercy Me Single

This new tune from the pop/punk trio Morriseyalikes is surprisingly refreshing. Although these guys have avoided being stuck on the shit stick of pop punk nothingness, they have got away all rather lightly. Unlike there counterparts they have done things the hard way and worked for their loving cult status. They are the Weezer of the pop/punk/miserablists put simply. Great simple song writing which is both high quality and ok to like. It sounds like take themselves seriously in a cliché way, they know what they are doing and how to do it. Listen to this if you have a musical impatience to the dark and gloomy side to this genre. 8.5/10
