WHO IS SUCKER PUNCH?
Sucker Punch is a fresh and hard-hitting band with old ties to both the New Jersey and Philly DIY punk scenes. Garnering influences from Taking Back Sunday, The Story So Far, Coheed and Cambria, and Thrice, this band bridges the gap between the early 2000s emocore wave of bands, and the current movement of emo and pop punk. Sucker Punch aims to take a strong focus on personal and self reflective lyrical content, framed within upbeat and catchy riffs and melodies. Within months of starting as a solo project, the band now consists of lifelong friends who all share the same passion for both alternative music and culture. Their soon to be released single, “Worst Case Ontario,” goes out to anyone who has had their hearts literally or metaphorically ripped out.
