Formed in early 2018 on the outskirts of Los Angeles, Calmgrovebelies their inexperience with a well-honed balance of pop-punk and emo, delivering with an assured cohesion, grit and honesty. As first seen on 2018 debut single “Lifelong”, Calmgrove’s elements of urgency intertwine with hook-heavy melodies and edgy punk tones.

Nods to Southern California pop-punk of yesteryear, with the execution of their more angst-laden contemporaries, Calmgrove has worked hard playing shows across California, earning a reputation as a regional workhorse in the process.

With 2019 in full swing, the 5-piece continues to diligently spread their sound across the region, with a number of winter shows, including a support with genre mainstays In Her Own Words. Following on from the resonating “Keep Close”, “Misery” is another step in the right direction for the SoCal troupe, whose reputation continues to quickly penetrate state lines with support from Alternative Press, Substream, Punknews as well as Spotify’s New Punks Tracks and Pop Punk’s Not Dead playlists.

“Misery” is out now via YouTube and Spotify.

Eric Guzman – Vocals
Tommy Maung – Guitar
