There are two types of people. Those who love pop punk and everything that comes along with it and those who are wrong. A genre full of fun filled memories, growth and development relatability and albums which stand the test of time and cement themselves as some of the best soundtracks to your life. That last statement can be said for the band our next guest fronts who are about to embark on an Anniversary Tour of Australia where they’ll not only play that debut album in full but also feature new tracks from their forthcoming release. We The Kings are the band and Travis Clark is the legend joining us for Episode #26 of Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall.
Even though their debut self-titled album has become such an iconic legacy for the group of musicians, Travis still can’t come to terms with the fact fans compare it to the workings of other bands such as blink-182, Jimmy Eat World and Coldplay. He also delves into his newfound world of fatherhood and reveals that no matter how much of a big time famous musicians he is portrayed to be, he’s immediately brought back down to earth when he has to change nappies and do Daddy duties when he’s not on tour.
Speaking of pop punk, there’s plenty of throwbacks to the 2000‘s era of that genre with tracks from New Found Glory, Good Charlotte, Cobra Starship, Boys Like Girls, Paramore, Hey Monday, The Maine and Panic! @ The Disco + another contribution for our new segment ‘Two Songs That Changed Me‘ featuring a pop punk loving photographer with a keen ear for great music.
