Viewpoints make the kind of pop punk you crave. It’s that Fall-Out-Boy-meets-All-Time-Low sound that draws you in and won’t let go until the very last chord is struck. A new generation of pop punk that bands like State Champs and Like Pacific are spearheading, emotional and melodic, yet angsty and gut-punching.

With their debut EP, The Feelings We’ve Outgrown, Viewpoints–consisting of Mike Cardinale (vocals), Dane Hall (guitar), Chris Conine (guitar), Luke Meyer (bass) and Jae Segatto (drums)–are putting their name on the map and inserting themselves into the ranks of this new generation of pop punk. The band’s lyrics hit home, and the melodies will be stuck in your head long after the songs subside.

When asked about the EP, Cardinale said:

“The Feelings We’ve Outgrown was our debut EP that was recorded last year at Nada Recording Studio and was mixed by Kyle Black (New Found Glory, State Champs, Hit The Lights). The album contains heavy drums and thick rhythm guitar which reflects the meaning of the words behind each song. The whole idea of the album is that we eventually move on from circumstances we never knew we could.
Having been through heartbreak myself, the cool thing is, eventually we realize we can move on from these situations that life seems to ever so viciously throw at us. It is inevitably our decision to move past them or remain buried with no hope of seeing the light.”

The band will release their brand new ‘Acoustic Sessions’ EP later this month. They’ll also be hitting the road this summer on the east coast. You can keep up with all things Viewpoints on Facebook, Twitter and InstagramThe Feelings We’ve Outgrown is available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
