Such Gold - The New Sidewalk Cover

Progression is the name of the game for 'The New Sidewalk', but is that a good thing?

Hailing from upstate New York, melodic hardcore punks Such Gold are back with a second album that doles out ass-kickings at will. Intricate, emo-tinged riffs weave in and out of relentless beats, while vocalist Ben Kotin’s yelps are still the dominant force and compete with genre-leading contemporary Parker Cannon. Lead single ‘Faced’ finds the finest balance between old and new and boasts the catchiest chorus on this full-length. While this may not be the straight-up punk that fans of 2012’s ‘Two Year Plan’ know and love, Such Gold are showing a thirst for progression, and that’s not something to be sniffed at.
