GET STOKED
"WASHINGTON STREET"
IMMINENCE RECORDS

GET STOKED is a Pop / Punk band from Mt. Pleasant, Michigan that started back in
2013. They got signed to
IMMINENCE RECORDS in 2014 and "WASHINGTON
STREET" is the bands debut release. They lay their foundation in the Punk genre, but add
in some Pop Punk and Hardcore into their sound. Their music has a high paced fast
adrenaline sound, but they also add in some melodic Punk sounds as well. The music is
more up beat and kind of has a fun vibe to it for most of the songs. The faster more rived
up parts is where the Hardcore elements are present. They get a little more aggressive and
harder edged. The drums, to me is the driving force behind these guys. They really have a
grooving and pounding full pace to them that kept pushing the band in your face. Cameron
Wheeler's vocals are done in a melodic Punk style with a little attitude mixed in. They then
change them up a bit by going a little deeper and grittier. My favorite part of the vocals is
when they do the gang chant vocals. That is one thing I have always loved in Hardcore and
Punk music. These guys do it really well. I grew up with old school Punk from the 70's
and 80's and probably in the past 5-10 years just started liking the new school of Punk
bands.
GET STOKED is one of these bands that really grows on you. The more you
listen to them the more you realize what a great, talented band they are. The only thing I
would have liked to hear is more songs. There is only five tracks on "WASHINGTON
STREET" and I would have liked more. I guess this is why I kept playing the album over
and over again. If your into Punk bands like
STICK TO YOUR GUNS, FOUR YEAR
STRONG, ALL TIME LOW, SET YOUR GOALS
& GOOD CHARLOTTE then your
going to love
GET STOKED!
