How Dare You
Hailing from a place like Orlando--a haven for superficiallity and manufactured feelings--ought to be a steel trap for creativity in the minds of most people, but that's hardly the case with How Dare You. Since 2007, there four guys have been evading the bullshit that surrounds them, fostering a fierce DIY aesthetic within a scene where everyone else seems to be seeking a handout or a free ride.
Their weapons of choice--soaring melodies, unique guitar interplay, two dynamic vocalists, a pounding rhythm section, direct lyrics--create a sound that's anthemic and familliar, but one that comes from a unique voice. It's punk rock that's highly evoled, but without the pretentious crap that usually qualifies such a description. These attributes are augmented tenfoldduring the band's live show, where How Dare You's passion becomes more palpable than ever amongst the clouds of smoke and pools of sweat. Their new album "The king, the clown, and the colonel" is the product of the band's experiences; whether it's staying positive while entrenched in the unhappiest place on Earth, working long hours at thankless jobs or witnessing the hypocrisy that exists within the punk scene first hand, How Dare You is fighting back.
