Song of the Day: Echoes (Acoustic) - Set Your Goals
SUGGESTION: Light Your Anchor
Hey all you easycore fans out there! I have a treat for you! Light Your Anchor from Hamburg, Germany (lyrics are in English) are your 2009 easycore/melodic hardcore/pop punk lovechild. They’ve been around for about 3 years, and are sure to make you want to punch a hole through your windshield out of excitement if you listen to them in your car.
Their full length, Hopesick, was released last year, but they have just released a brand new EP titled Indian Summer.
RIYL: A Day To Remember, New Found Glory, Set Your Goals, (old ROTD era) Four Year Strong
FYPP SUGGESTS: Like You To Me
When I first saw the name Like You To Me, I almost brushed this band off because of the obvious Set Your Goals song name reference, but I am SO glad I didn’t brush this band off. They are exactly what made me love pop punk as much as I do: catchy riffs, unique vocals, but not so unique that it doesn’t fit, whoa-ohs, and much more.
This Friday (May 2nd) the band will release a brand new song featuring Jordan Pundik of New Found Glory. I think that says enough for you guys to check them out.
RIYL: New Found Glory, This Time Next Year, Set Your Goals

Christmas Song of the Day: Reset Holiday - Set Your Goals
Even though this is all instrumental, it’s easily one of my favourite songs for this time of year.
