The Sons of James pay tribute to a fallen friend while delivering a smart, contemporary skate punk anthem

Marrying a blend of throwback and modern day punk, Florida crew The Sons of James should be a prospect that appeals to a cross-section of alternative rock fans.

Latest single "All They Told You" is out now, and crafts the best of what the Southern Florida act have to offer in one hook-laden offering.

Coming together with a passion for punk and hardcore, and to honor an old friend, The Sons of James have had to tackle more obstacles than most. It's perhaps no surprise their infectious brand of melodic punk is abundant with grit and candour, amidst the barrage of infectious hooks and high-octane delivery.

The band's moniker is a nod to fallen friend Kyle James, who was a member of an early iteration of the band and a respected member of the local music scene. James' loss both devastated and catalysed the reunion of old high school friends Steve Blair and Sean Attwater, who along with original vocalist Morgan Moore brought to life The Sons of James.

2020 debut album Traverse was recorded with Jesse Cannon (Brand New, Basement, The Cure) and saw the rockers find their feet with a high-energy, late-90's inspired brand of melodic skate punk, moulded on the likes of The Offspring, Lagwagon and blink-182.

Following on from June's "Real Me", new single "All They Told You" is a memorable marriage of punchy guitars and resonating choruses, a track that is rooted in the now, whilst proudly displaying it's throwback heritage.
