The time has come! Point of View's "Vultures" has arrived! POINT OF VIEW have been around since 2002 and have spent the last 15 years honing an intensely well-crafted blend of melodic punk rock into a sound that is undeniably their own – The band are no strangers to outstanding EP releases, either. POINT OF VIEW’s 2013’s ‘Burner’ EP showcased the band’s impressive ability to combine unconventional and lasting song-structures with extremely memorable vocal melodies, heartfelt lyrics, and tight-knit musicianship that left fans clawing more material.
The highly anticipated follow-up, "Vultures", serves as a perfectly satisfying next dose of melancholy melodic punk rock in the form of 5 incredible new tracks. In the past four years, the individual members of POINT OF VIEW have evolved as musicians and introspective lyricists, which is obvious upon first listen of “Vultures” - The album’s opening atmospheric swells launch into an array of different emotions, highlighted by the intricate, complex guitar playing of frontman Curtis Wallace, and the naturally fitting combination of his voice with the band’s drummer (and Curtis’ brother), John Wallace. Throughout the short but impactful journey of “Vultures”, the band confronts the realities of death, mortality, and the dread of coming of age in a world that feels inherently broken. It's a ride that is both uplifting, inspiring, and inherently introspective.
“Vultures” was recorded in late 2016 with Scott Goodrich at Nu-Tone Studios, and will be available on May 12th, 2017 on 180-gram heavyweight colored vinyl with a digital download included. The vinyl pressing is limited to 250pcs!
