Long Island has long been a breeding ground for pop punk bands that stand the test of time. Enter 5-piece Gone Stereo, who return with a powerhouse sophomore release on Negative Progression Records. The band's upcoming single, “I’m So Sick,” is another classic, early 2000s pop-punk, sing-a-long anthem that builds on their previous “Don’t Think I Forgot About You” single.

Fans of MxPx, The Ataris or Allister will enjoy the same energy, attitude, and hook-driven catchiness as their debut single “Don’t Think I Forgot About You,” which got spins regularly for three months last fall on SiriusXM's Faction Punk.

B-side “Cool Kids,” (which premiered on Punknews) is a mid-tempo walk through the school halls, in-between classes, and everywhere you look is another self-absorbed, obnoxious clique. All you want to do is push everybody out of the way, kick open the front doors, and escape.

Singer Matty Lupinacci says “Cool Kids” is about coping with cliques, feeling left out, and how unpleasant it feels. You think that you want to be a part of it, but you refuse to be pressured to conform to their standards. In the end, those cliques will all fade away.”

The sophomore release by the Long Island, NY pop-punk quintet was recorded by John Naclerio (Knuckle Punk, Real Friends, Bayside) and mixed by Chris Badami (The Starting Line, The Early November).
