All These Years and Nothing - S/T

All These Years and Nothing play a type of hardcore that reminds me of Kill Your Idols mixed with some older AFI.  They are stationed in Northwest Indiana and have an uncharacteristically positive take on life in their lyrics and approach.

There's plenty of mid tempo two step riffs in here, topped with catchy vocal anthems.  The production value and musicianship are extremely clean and tight without sounding too polished.

I caught this band at a show last week on their home turf.  The set was reinforced with some honest discussion before songs addressing issues like being a good father, confronting child molestation, preventing bullying and trying their best to have a positive impact.  A good vibe for sure.

Their record is just about to come out, but you can stream the whole thing here.
