Major League have returned with a new album and a shift in sound. But how does it stand up to 'Hard Feelings'?
Since ’12 effort ‘Hard Feelings’, Major League have undergone a change in personnel, and their return reminds us that pop-punk isn’t all flowers and sunshine. The first release from the band with guitarist Brian Joyce on vocal duties after the departure of Nick Trask is one of unrest, unhappiness and an overall sense of recovery. Though it doesn’t boast the bounce, style or solid gold hooks that we’ve come to expect from this lot, it’s the raw honesty found on ‘There’s Nothing With Me’ that exhibits a level of songwriting and maturity that’s slowly pushing them ahead of their peers.
