Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!
Something For Nothing
November 2, 2010
Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! hails from Paris, France. I pre-ordered their new album Something For Nothing along with an awesome T-shirt from MerchNOW. I have to say that they really out did themselves with their debut album. I have been a fan since the Cum On EP, but this albums blows it away.
Immediately when listening to Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! it reminds you of bands like Set Your Goals and A Day To Remember. The pop/punk meets hardcore sound. Add a little twist of metal to the mix, and that describes Something For Nothing. The album features some awesome songs, each one better than the last. What I really like about Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! is their diversity. They have a few songs like "Captain Blood" and "Born for Adversity" that remind you of A Day To Remember or For The Fallen Dreams. Then on the other hand, they have songs like "Summer Heat" that remind you of bands like Hit The Lights.
All around the new album is awesome. I'd have to say my favorite songs would be "In Friends We Trust" and "We Fell Fast". They both just have an amazing blend of punk with hardcore influence. The intro to "In Friends We Trust" is killer too.
In reality, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! has to be experienced. If you are a fan of post-hardcore bands or pop/punk then definitely check them out. Oh, and by the way, if you are wondering where the band name came from, you either haven't seen "The Goonies" or you simply can't remember. Either way, this will explain everything. For those of you that want to check out the band, you can go to their PureVolume page here. Feel free to leave comments!
