Modern Guns is an Indonesian melodic hardcore punk band based in Depok in the West Java province. Its new album, The Place Where I Left You (Armstretch Records), is worth the listen if you’re into Brand New, and you should be into Brand New (because they’re great!). You can check out the album on Spotify and iTunes as well.
The blend of emo, ambience, and punk works well here, whereas most bands fumble at sounding melodic and aggressive at the same time. Keep your eyes and ears out for more Modern Guns music coming out hopefully soon.
