Album Review: Poison Arrows by Communique

Album: Poison Arrows
Artist: Communique
Release Date: May 18, 2004

Website/Social Media: BandcampFacebook

Sounds Like: 80s New Wave & Indie Rock

Similar Artists: Matt Skiba & The Sekrets, We Are Scientists, Gerard Way (solo), Ozma, Alkaline Trio, The Network

Review: How has this band eluded my ears for over 10 years. Communique released 3 albums on Lookout! records in the mid 2000's but it took until just a few days ago for their 2004 full-length album Poison Arrows to fall into my hands.

Vans Warped Tour Survival Guide by Pop Punk Radio

It's that time of year again when pop-punks annual "summer camp" begins. The Van's Warped Tour is a fun-filled event with more activities taking place than is humanly possible to fully absorb in one day. Pop Punk Radio is here to help with some tips to get the most enjoyment out of your day.
