Plain White T’s made it into mainstream radio with their single “Hey There Delilah” featured on their two previous releases, All That We Needed in 2005 and Every Second Counts in 2006. The band has recently re-released their debut album, Stop, on Fearless Records, which includes three bonus tracks. The album profiles the band’s good-natured rapport and soft punk spins. The melodic tone of the album is elevated to a Fall Out Boy blitz with a mixture of acoustic country, pop/rock, and sunny punk curvatures. Produced by Loren Israel (Sugarcult, Rock Kills Kid) and the Plain White T’s, the album has kegs of ravishing guitar trills, jumping rhythms and upbeat fumes which keep the energy level on overdrive. The rock quintet, based in Chicago, developed a reputation among concertgoers at the Vans Warped Tour, and though Stop undeniably has a poppy punk edge synonymous with Warped bands, the album sprouts a wider range of musicality. They drill everything from Jimmy Eat World’s keystone emo to Cary Brothers' country-bound acoustics and Papa Roach’s hard rock cleats.
