My first thought when listening to The Gateway District’s sophomore album Perfect’s Gonna Fail was wow. This is a band that is new to me and I’m kicking myself for missing their debut album. Perfect’s Gonna Fail is a tremendous Midwestern punk album, mixing elements of pop punk, indie rock, power pop, and post hardcore. The vocals remind me a lot of a female version of Against Me’s Tom Gabel while the band is tight, the songs are short and catchy as bad-word. The Gateway District includes current and former members of Dear Landlord, Off With Their Heads, Banner Pilot, The Soviettes, The Salteens, and Rivethead. If you are a fan of any one of those bands then I highly suggest checking out Perfect’s Gonna Fail.
Thanks to Nostalgia for Infinity for the find.
