MusicMatters blog returns today with some fantastic pop-punk sounds from BoyMeetsWorld.
BoyMeetsWorld are a five-piece pop rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. For sure, they are one of the most exciting young bands with huge potential in this genre.
They have recently demonstrated in their shows that drive and belief in yourself is everything that you need to succeed. This musical powerhouse tackles the obstacles of growing up, setting sights on your future and having a little fun while doing so. Vocalist Craig Sulken sums up their message best, saying “We find inspiration knowing that we have a chance to help somebody better their life through our music and band.”
They released a remarkable music video for “Best You’ve Ever Had” about 4 months ago. You can watch and listen here;
It’s the ties to their home in Cincinnati, and having each other, that have helped them to turn their dream into a reality. Bound together by brotherhood, twins Craig and Ryan Sulken, and older brother Brad Sulken were born with the musical itch to become rockstars at a young age. Playing a variety of instruments in their early years and experiencing the rush of being onstage were enough to hook them for life. After pursing separate careers in other bands, they knew they were stronger together than apart. They eventually found themselves joined as brothers and bandmates. Adding in Drew Richter and Drew Thomason on guitar, BoyMeetsWorld were solidified.
Pulling sounds from pop-rock and pop-punk, BoyMeetsWorld have the perfect blend of hooks, melodies and soaring guitars that will suit almost any listener. Their rally chants, soft and heavy breakdowns make for a satisfying mix that can’t help but draw you in. It’s not hard to see the musical strides they’ve made; and their rapidly growing fan-base is taking notice.
Recently they released a new music video for “Feel It In The Air”. This music video was filmed during their time on The Vans Warped Tour 2015.
The five-piece has been on the fast track since their formation. BoyMeetsWorld formed in the summer of 2012, and in their short time as a band, won first place at their tri-state Battle of the Bands, released their debut EP entitled, “Do What’s Best For You,” their Christmas Album entitled, “Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal”, and now their debut full length “Become Someone” which was released on 16th June, 2015 right before performing all summer on The Vans Warped Tour.
You can listen to their album “Become Someone” here;
BoyMeetsWorld are currently on tour in the US. Having seen their footage on Vans Warped Tour as well as listening to their most recent music, this seems to be a tour not to be missed. If you are nearby where they next visit, I hope you take the time to go and see their energetic live show. Dance, jump and sing with them!
