HANDGUNS (Harrisburg, PA) has just unveiled a video for “A Year In Review,” the opening track from the band’s newly released EP, Don’t Bite Your Tongue. Head over to Alternative Press to check out the exclusive premier of the video, which was filmed and directed in NYC by Dane Hurt and Eric Dickey.

Recorded by Man Overboard’s Nick Bruzzese and mastered by Jesse Cannon (Saves The Day, Lifetime, Say Anything), this seven-song effort was released by Pure Noise Records on February 22 and is available on both 12″ vinyl and CD formats, as well as digitally from and iTunes and and Bandcamp.

Don’t Bite Your Tongue is rooted in the type of punchy pop punk that bands such New Found Glory and Pennsylvania brethren The Wonder Years have brought to the mainstream in recent years, chock full of starry guitar riffs, chunky rhythms and anthemic choruses. Handguns’ take on the genre is tight, compact and tidily packaged, but don’t let its pristine qualities fool you; the EP’s contents are ready to explode in your face and infect your brain as soon as you take off the lid. This is the sound of a band that has put years into the DIY underground scene but that also writes ultra-catchy, turbo-charged punk rock that has the potential to win over anyone who hears it.

You can stream Don’t Bite Your Tongue in its entirety at Bandcamp or download a free mp3 for “Scream Goodbye” here.

It’s clear that that Handguns is headed for bigger things … plain and simple, this is an excellent pop-punk album.Brooklyn Underground
