Record Label: Minor Manor
Genre: Melodic Punk
Band Link: www.8bitrevival.com
Buy on Amazon.com

I haven’t been this misled by a band’s name since the Barenaked Ladies. Very much not a chiptune or 8-bit band, 8-Bit Revival plays ho-hum emo-y melodic punk with a dash of post-hardcore jaggedness. You’ve heard it before. Many, many, many times.

The energetic “Terrible Too” is passably good; the rest of the album is sterile and blah. The album title should be “You’ve Been Deceived.”

Bottom Line: Blah.
Notable Tracks: Terrible Too
