Whippersnapper The Long Walk

These five lads hail from the sunny groves of Peachtree City, Georgia. And as cute as that sounds, you know deep down that the hell of suburbia is a big part of their inspiration. Couple that with 12 songs worth of a speedy cross between the Get Up Kids and Texas is the Reason and you have Whippersnapper’s second album. Lyrically, they’re in the personal/introspective with a positive slant camp like on “The Long Walk.” They may have what it takes to claw their way to the top of today’s already crowded punk rock market.
