Stream Upset out today! 22 November 2019
Upset is a pop punk powerhouse from Los Angeles, CA featuring Ali Koehler (Vivian Girls), Patty Schemel (Hole), Lauren Freeman (Benny the Jet Rodriguez) and Nicole Snyder (Slutever). The band debuted their first album She's Gone in 2013 on Don Giovanni Records, following up with their 8-song EP, 76, in 2015 on Lauren Records.
Upset is the first record that splits the writing between Ali and Lauren, adding a refreshing new dynamic. Recorded and mixed by Steve McDonald (Redd Kross, Off!, Melvins) and mastered by Jack Shirley (most popular for his work with bands like Deafheaven and Loma Prieta), the group dove head first into their punk roots. With candy crushed harmonies and crunchy riffs, Upset is a bittersweet novel of self-realization. The supergroup displays no shortage of energy, and will keep you immersed down to the last second. Flipping the stereotypical notions of pop punk on its side, Upset continue to prove they aren’t afraid to push boundaries.
