Album Review

In 2006 D.I.Y. punk rockers Latterman finally re-released their impassioned debut, Turn Up the Punk, We'll Be Singing, which was out of print since its original release in 2002. Post-hardcore and pop-punk sensibilities combine with hoarse vocals for ten songs of self-empowerment, friendship, and positivism.
