Too Close For Comfort
Much like the early 2000’s era where some of the most memorable pop punk bands evolved from much harder music – Fall Out Boy forming from Racetraitor, New Found Glory from Shai Hulud – Reno, Nevada’s Too Close For Comfort arose from the ashes of a metalcore past. And while the band treads confidently in pop punk territory, their heavier past doesn’t stay hidden for long in their audibly technical instrumentation and heavier beats amidst the circle pit anthems.
With vocal contributions by Joey Fleming (In Her Own Words) and mastering by Alan Douches (Brand New, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Saves The Day), Too Close For Comfort blasts their way through the harder fringes of melodic pop punk, crafting a sound as absolutely infectious as the Warped Tour era. But make no mistake, TCFC plays with a heavier aggression simmering beneath the surface.
The band’s first album, We Only Live Here On This Planet For So Long, overlays crunching guitars and palpitation-inducing drums with lyrics of youth confronting the banality and slow death of a world of dead end expectations and cog-in-the-machine adulthood.
Drawing clear inspiration from a scene of hardcore influenced melodic punk, Too Close For Comfort crafts a sonic facade that thrashes beyond the genre’s fringes. We Only Live Here On This Planet For So Long captures the band defining the sound of 2020s Pop Punk!
