Record Label: Fail Safe Records
Genre: Melodic Punk
Band Link: link
Youthful melodic punk that does a decent job in avoiding emo cheesiness. Unfortunately, nothing here is fresh or exciting. Their sound is derivative, and lackluster musicianship and long durations bog down their energy and any sense of urgency.
I wish that not being completely wussy was the only requirement for punky goodness, but How Dare You needs more punch and distinction to stand apart from the crowded scene.
Bottom Line: Hot Water Music-ish.
Notable Tracks: Shave off a minute, and I’d say “Scout’s Honor” and “Leaving Now OK…”
