Attic Salt Release ‘Get Wise’ on Jump Start Records
It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to Attic Salt. If you’re not familiar, this pop-punk quartet out of Springfield, IL have been kicking around since 2017. Their self-titled debut made a splash in the punk scene, drawing comparisons to bands like The Copyrights and early Blink 182. Now, the band is back with a brand new album and a new home. Attic Salt have signed with Jump Start Records (MXPX, A Wilhelm Scream, Plow United) to release their sophomore album, Get Wise. The ten track release builds on their previous effort and showcases the songwriting skills of both Alyssa Currie and Andy Harmon. Get Wise was released on September 25th, 2020.
Melodic, aggressive, catchy, unapologetically pop; all have been used to describe Attic Salt. Residing in the vibrant punk scene of Springfield, IL, Andy Harmon, Fred Malcom and Skip Davis have been friends since the late 90’s and have spent a majority of that time playing in bands together. In late 2015, the group befriended Alyssa Currie to start a new project called Attic Salt.
In 2017, Attic Salt released their self-titled debut and it quickly became a year end favorite by many who heard it. Receiving praise from publications such as PunkNews, Razorcake and Bad Copy, the band quickly developed an undeniable buzz. PunkNews highlighted “Guitarists Andy Harmon and Alyssa Currie have one of the best dual dynamics I’ve heard on vocals in quite some time.“
After supporting the record with tours in the United States and abroad, including appearances at The Fest and Pouzza Fest, the band went back to work on their second album. ‘Get Wise’ is a collection of unabashedly honest pop-punk songs that builds on their self-titled debut and showcases the songwriting of Andy Harmon and Alyssa Currie. Every track is a deadly earworm and a reminder that much can be said with four chords and a melody.
