Saved her from being killed by crowd surfers lol
Such a cutie holy shit
Changed a lot of shit
I became best friends with the girl who nearly ripped apart the wolf pack. Everything changed when she came we just kinda grew up in a sense. Were definetly moving to better ourselves.. i hope. I feel so different already and learned so much. And it all hit me when laura came. Idk she, ade is want to grow up without anyof us realizing it.
With The Punches’ debut album, Seams & Stitches, is officially out via Doghouse Records, and we couldn’t be more excited. Not only is the band heading out in a week or so on the PropertyOfZack Tour with Forever Came Calling and State Champs, but they were also kind enough to write up a great Track-By-Track for us. Check out the meaning behind all the songs on Seams & Stitches below and buy the album here!
After we wrote and demoed Harvard and I Told You Already, it was time to sit down and start really getting into the writing for the full length and it started with this song and the descending guitar riff Mike wrote for the intro. We started working with it and actually the song came together fairly quickly. We all decided right away that this was going to be the first track on the record. Lyrically I love this song because it’s about the point when Jesse and I first really started to become close friends, so I know what he is referencing when he talks about that apartment because it was my apartment too. I like the tone this song sets for the record. - Dustin
My favorite song on the record. Since the moment Vin and I figured out the intro for the song, there has just been something about the music for this song that kills me. I really love what everyone plays and how it all blends and builds off everything else, particularly Shane and Mike’s parts stand out for me on this song. Mike has a lot of real awesome and subtle runs in this song and I think that it’s how the two of them play that make the song hit so hard for me. Lyrically it deals with shitty people in your life and how no matter how much you try, sometimes people are unwilling to look at things from any perspective but theirs, and in that situation you can’t always save the relationship. There are some people in this world you are just better off without. – Dustin
Harvard on the Hudson
Harvard hits home with me because I never went to college. All my friends left for school and I almost felt left out or dumb. This song was written to say that everyone chooses their own path. For me, it meant that even if I didn’t go to college, it doesn’t mean I can’t be successful in what I do. At the time it wasn’t so easy to wrap my mind around. Now, I have seen so many places and done so many things that I could never have imagined doing. I’m still striving to be the best at what I do, and that is playing music. Bottom line is, you don’t need college if it’s not the right thing for you. Do what you love and what makes you happy because that is what life ultimately comes down to. - Shane
This was actually based on something that I personally went through on tour. Jesse saw everything progress as it happened and asked if he could write a song about it. Long story short, I really liked this girl and everything seemed to be going great. We left for tour and, so she wouldn’t forget about me, I sent her a postcard from a ton of places that we were at while we were gone. Again, it seemed to be going great and then a few days before the end of tour she told me that she didn’t want anything more than for us to be just friends. I get home to find out that she had been hooking up with someone else while we were gone. It just really sucked. You live… you learn……… and you write a song about it. - Shane
