We are psyched to premiere 'Sink Back To Me,' the new single by Gainesville, FL power-pop outfit You Vandal. The song is the first single taken off the band's upcoming album, ' 'Pretend I Don't Exist ,' which will be out Feb 11 on Jump Start Records (pre-order HERE). It's a total rager that only makes me miss live shows even more as it begs to be belted along in a sweaty, covid-free basement.

"Sink Back to Me is about moving on from failure and negative situations, which we thought would mesh well with a story about getting fired from a crappy workplace," explains guitarist/vocalist Gooch. "We were excited to work with Matt Zagorski on this. He knocked the concept out of the park, and helped Eric channel his best Office Space vibes."

While Gainesville is typically known for its brand of gruff punk associated with No Idea Records, You Vandal combines those influences with the best parts of punk and pop-rock, delivering songs full of well-polished melodies begging you to sing along. This band may have more in common with New Found Glory than Hot Water Music, but they still manage to stay clear of any cringe-inducing clichés that come along with the pop-punk genre. Their upcoming releases are the long-awaited follow-up to 2017's "I Just Want to Go Back to Hell." Be sure to keep an eye out for shows across the US throughout the year in support of their upcoming full-length.
