Media: 'An Introduction to We Are the Union' (Punknews Exclusive)

Posted by johng on Wednesday, May 27, 2015 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
We Are the Union Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new sampler by We Are the Union. The band, currently on Paper and Plastick, roots their sound in energetic pop-punk. But, as they rip along, they slide just a little bit of ska under that driving tempo. The new sampler gives a quick, three track survey of the band's skills. Paper and Plastick's Vinnie Fiorello spoke to Punknews about the sampler:

"If you don't know WE ARE THE UNION then here's 3 songs for you to get to know them. A little Less Than Jake, add Wonder Years, and a bit of Lifetime all rolled together. We have always loved WATU and now you have a short musical history lesson to know why".

You can stream the sampler below. The band recently released Keep It Down .
