Often drawing comparisons to the Ramones, especially on their earlier work, Wyoming-based punk band The Lillingtons are sort of that perfect blend of punk and pop rock that could appeal to the masses. But it feels weird calling them pop-punk. This isn’t Blink-182 or Sum 41 (not that there’s anything wrong with liking those bands). These dudes just happen to utilize catchy-ass melodies and verse/chorus pop-song structures that, after a listen or two, anyone would be able to sing along to. Poppy or not, The Lillingtons write some good punk rock and we’re stoked for them to be headed to town.
