Stereotyperider chucks the syrupy guitars into the wastebasket and picks up a shrill, chiming tone that splits the difference between modern post-hardcore acts and the gutsy boom of the So-Cal acts that used to make up the Epitaph roster in the mid-’90s. That said, Stereotyperider could still lay a whuppin’ on nearly every pop-punk act out there these days. Whether it blasts with a sparring pair of guitars that attack each other with rusty hooks or go wild with sweaty, nervous caffeine-addicted riffs. Stereotyperider are an anomaly in todays punk rock scene, as they care more about the music than fashion sense or hipster posturing. In a perfect world they would be commended for following their hearts and not what everyone else is doing.
