Portland, ME based melodic punk outfit The Keeper Class have released their brand new EP just last week titled "States Away". The four piece of Ande, Carlton, Jeremy, and Henry have a strong melodic percussion that charges right out of the gate, coupled with explosive vocals that meld in well with the indelible instrumentation that is omnipresent at every turn. I absolutely loved their sound right out of the gate, and it kind of reminded me of early 00's era New Found Glory but with a much more harder edged dynamic that is reflective of the modern musical climate, and the band's individual musical influences as well. Even if you're not too familiar with the guys or the genre at all, you'll definitely appreciate their musical message that is easily relatable and are a bunch of talented musicians who know how to have a good time, and make sure that their audience is having an enjoyable experience as well. An incredibly promising act that I look forward to hearing more great things from down the road.
