New Fireworks Song Up For Download

Since their debut album, Fireworks has been thought of as one of the leaders of the "new wave" of pop-punk. However, I never felt they brought anything excellent to the table. The first released track off their soon to be released album Gospel, "Summer," is in my opinion the best track they have put out so far. Nasally vocalist David Mackinder definitely shows some improvement, while the chorus is one of the best I've heard this year. The lyrics are stronger than many bands in the pop-punk scene, and the instrumentation has tightened up as well. Gospel is now gaining hype in my eyes, and looks like a potential end of year list candidate. You can download "Summer" for free right here. Gospel is out on May 24th.
