While Five Iron Frenzy fans everywhere have skanked their last dance, there’s still plenty of musical mayhem to be had. Former Five Iron frontman Reese Roper is back with a pop-punk four-piece, creatively named Roper. The album comes out October 19, but you can hear some early snippets now.
You can’t help comparing Roper to Five Iron or Brave Saint Saturn, and at first listen Roper sounds like an interesting mix of the two. There’s not as much jumping energy as Five Iron, or the spacey atmospherics of BSS — but the humor is still there. Of the five sample tracks one is called “Hello Lamewads” and another is “You’re with Stupid.”
