10 AWESOME Italian Pop-Punk Bands ūüĒ•ūüáģūüáĻ

Have you ever wondered what the fuck is happening in Italy? 
We don't really know if Pizza is indeed the Pop-Punk magic meal or the ancient Romans transmitted punker DNA into today's Italian kids. The fact, is that since the late 00's many bands from the "Penisola Appenninica" have been on the top the European scene. There's no doubt that still today, a bunch of bands stand out and bring their best tunes on impressive tours and international festivals.
It's just a matter of time that the next big thing in Pop-Punk, waves an Italian flag.
We listed below 10 Awesome Italian Bands you should check out straightaway. Because "Italians Do It Better"....right? (no specific order!) 

1.Melody Fall. 

The guys from Turin have performed in several countries like Japan or China and after more than a decade, they are still burning fuel to release albums at an impressive level. The latest release is "The Scene" a good allegory to tourlife and their passion for music. 


2. Sunset Radio.

What can we say? This is the most international Italian Pop-Punk band! Popular by their covers the highlight of their career was the release of "Changes" an album that included a collaboration with Mark Hoppus! *Mindblown*. Success also came with international festivals and crowded tours. 
Now their core fanbase is based in Russia where the band has a huge following.

If you're looking into poppy melodies and choruses with some real hardcore background, Why Everyone Left is your band. Their latest LP "Been Home Enough" gave them the chance to tour UK last June and open for some of the biggest mainstream bands in the Pop-Punk scene. They have many plans, one of them, conquer the world.

5. The Last Confidence

After some member changes in the last couple of years this guys from Cortenuova are paddling to get back on the top of the wave. Finest energetic Pop-Punk that stands loud for "Defend Stage Diving". They already played in many cities all over the Italian territory and now they are planning an European tour. We really hope they stop by the American Socks office to hang out and drink some beers!

This band was born in Padova 2012. Their ethos from the start was hard touring. And they did. Traveling through countries like Canada, Japan or even Russia, proving that italian music is worth a listen. We don't know their future plans, but gonna follow up their upgrowing trajectory.
If you're into bands like A Day To Remember, you'll love them!

8. Summer of Hoaxes

We personally adore this band and it has been played in the office more than once because of the awesome vocals done by Phil. The choruses are so easy to singalong you won't get them out of your head. The band brings some real Pop-Punk influenced by the 90's into the scene and right now is recording a new EP to be released this 2017.

9. Leftovers

Heavily influenced by Blink 182 this band is worth a mention as their music is easy listening and takes you straight to your high school days. Based in¬†Rome, they managed to make themselves a place in the¬†scene. They should improve their sock game, though. ūüėČ

Music: Leftovers - Just Another Day

10. Halflives

We¬†wanted to include a female fronted band in this blog and Halflives are not only part of our team they also are a VERY talented band. They aim high and work like the best to release unbelieveable music videos and productions. Their alternative rock is made to be played in huge arenas. They're heading to Europe this 2017. Make sure to attend to any of their shows ‚̧ԳŹ

We surely forgot about a LOT of bands that's why please drop us an email or comment on our instagram so we can know more about you.

Also worth mentioning those bands that flattened the way for the youngest when the scene was smaller. Together, they made the difference with a lot of effort, hard work and perseverance. 

Sadly, some of them, are not playing together anymore.
