The Gateway District surprised me with 2011’s Perfect’s Gonna Fail. I’d enjoyed the band’s full-length debut Some Days You Get The Thunder, but it was a little rough around the edges and scattered at times. Perfect’s Gonna Fail, on the other hand, retained the best parts of Some Days You Get The Thunder while tightening up their songwriting, providing twenty-six consistent minutes of some of the catchiest pop-punk I’d heard in years. The band's latest, Old Wild Hearts, is a similar transition: The songs are even more polished, the pace is a touch slower and the pop influences are even more prevalent than before.
