Harrisburg, Pennsylvania natives, pop-punk band Handguns consists of vocalist Taylor Eby, guitarists Brandon Pagano and Kyle Vaught, bassist CJ Wilson, and drummer Ryan Pyle. The band pulls inspiration and sound from those such as The Wonder Years and Menzingers, and brings out the upbeat pop-punk melodies with just the right amount of emotion,sincerity and rawness in their songs.
Following up their sophomore album, Life Lessons released in 2014, Handguns are set to release their next full length album, entitled “Disenchanted” on November 13, 2015 via Pure Noise Records (Pre-Order Available). The second single off of the album has been debuted, and one can listen to the title track “Disenchanted” below:
I have been personally following Handguns for quite some time now, since seeing them perform over the summer on Warped Tour 2015, and have been eagerly awaiting new music from this band. So far, the new album seems promising and a lot of fun, as the previewed singles (“Self Portrait” and “Disenchanted”) show just how much Handguns have grown since starting out in 2008, and how much the experienced gained has changed their music for the better.
