Upcoming Album from melodic skate-rock band Castoff
San Diego melodic skate punk band Castoff will release its first official full-length, First Step To Recovery, on February 10 via Bird Attack Records/Morning Wood Records. It was recorded and mixed by Patrick Burkholder (Wraths) at Screaming Leopard Studios and mastered by Daryl Phenneger at The Freq Zone Studio.
Influenced by bands like Bad Religion, Pennywise, Strung Out and Propagandhi, Castoff blends vocal harmonies, fast guitar riffing with technical flourishes and a furious rhythm section, along with thought provoking lyrics around societal issues and the ups and downs of human existence. Driven by a persistent work ethic and common goal of progressing musically and playing as many shows as possible, Castoff is ready to become a mainstay in the melodic skatepunk scene.
The band has shared stages with such like-minded bands as Guttermouth, Implants, Counterpunch, After the Fall and others. Tours are currently being planned to support the new album.
