SOP's Battle of the Bands featuring O PIONEERS with "I So Told You So"
O Pioneers!!! are a band that have thrived on being totally f***ing sweet for years. From their unique gritty guitar/drum compositions to their constant help with the Houston punk rock scene, not to mention the bands that visit from out of town, O Pioneers!!! have definitely made themselves known and loved.
The music on Neon Creeps however, stands head and shoulders above the bands` previous releases. The sound is filled out with a bass guitar for the first time, the songs are catchier than ever and the production brings it all crashing down upon ya like never before. While there are a ton of bands that have taken influence from bands like Against Me!, Hot Water Music and Leatherface, O Pioneers!!! have certainly set themselves down their own path with Neon Creeps.
PIONEERS! give entire new album away for FREE!!! + Tour Dates!
