John Nolan releasing ACLU benefit comp ft. Taking Back Sunday, Walter Schreifels, Brendan Kelly, more
‘Music for Everyone’ features rare or unreleased music by Taking Back Sunday, Walter Schreifels, Brendan Kelley, Dave Hause, Chris Farren, Potty Mouth, Allison Weiss, Anthony Green, Fran Iero, Anti-Flag, and more.
Wonder Years singer Dan Campbell also has a solo project called Aaron West and The Roaring Twenties, and he’ll release a new EP and go on tour with that project this year. The EP is called Bittersweet, and first single “67 Cherry Red” has Dan’s trademark vocals over rollicking horn-filled folk punk. It’s kind of like a more pop punk version of Neutral Milk Hotel or The Mountain Goats.
