Young’s brother, Taylor Young, produced the new demo from the band, and you can check out the full ten-minute offering below.

Valley Girl Live

It’s pretty clear that Jesse is a back fan of newer hardcore acts like Turnstile (shoutout to BrooklynVegan who clearly also made that distinction), but there’s also a ton of influence from Militarie Gun in there as well.

Does this mean that we’re going to start seeing even more ‘pop’ acts make their way into the hardcore scene? It’s certainly possible, and the sXe and hXe gatekeepers will be happy to be busy for the first time since the mid-90s.

You can check out the band’s first live show via the video below from 197 Media.
