• h 2 o Use Your Voice (LP, £12.50)

    label: Bridge Nine

    Bicoastal hardcore punk pillars H2O return with Use Your Voice, their first original studio album since 2008's Nothing to Prove. While 2011's covers LP Don't Forget Your Roots was a loving ode to their influences, Use Your Voice reignites H2O's own classic mix of melodic hardcore aggression and pop-punk bounce! Single "Skate!" released on 7" in advance of release H2O just wrapped up a European tour and an appearance at This Is Hardcore Fest in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with two U.S. northwest dates scheduled on Warped Tour at the end of August, and two U.S. northeast shows with Rancid in mid-September. H2O have more than 210,000 Facebook likes, while frontman Toby Morse has more than 28,500 Twitter followers and 38,600 Instagram followers. "A nice, refreshing release in a genre that has been needing it." - AbsolutePunk "Effortlessly catchy...wow can they still hack it." - Punknews
