No Lost Cause is back with P.S., their third ep filled with their blend of pop-punk and ska.

A few years ago, No Lost Cause was based in New Jersey, but as things change, so do band locations and now the band calls Florida home.  The goal of the band is to take their blend of punk and ska and use it to speak of trust in God, providing hope and encouragement in hard times.  For this ep, the band has enlisted both Indie Vision Music and Thumper Punk Records for the support.

To be honest, I really like how the songs like “Slow It Down” start, as its pure, fast, driving punk rock, but then the ska part comes in and all momentum gets lost and suddenly the song just sounds dated, like it should be something from back in the late 90’s when the Supertones, and FIF were hot.  All that being said, the vocals are clear and fit well with the music, guitars and drums dominate the sound, but the bass doesn’t get lost in the mix, which is a good thing.  At over four minutes long, I do think the song carried on a bit longer than needed, but then that was likely a function of the ska breaks.  I will say that if there were horns, I might not have minded the ska parts as much but without them, the overall sound doesn’t work for me.

This new Ep is titled “P.S.” and is a loving reminder of God’s love for us all and the hope that flows from that instant connection one has with the Lord. This hybrid style of music will please fans new and old to those great sounds of bands like Goldfinger, Blink-182, Pennywise, Slick Shoes, Fireflight, RED, and even 311. When we say DIFFERENT, we mean it!

Grab this fantastic Ep from IVM and Thumper Punk on December 6th. Ep will be available on both CD and Digital from both places (see links below).

“The P.S. ep is probably the most eclectic release I’ve put together up til now. I have a wide variety of music I really enjoy and I think a lot of that came out on this ep more than it has before. There’s punk, ska, rock, hard rock… The songs were all written as I was going through certain things and I just kind of wrote what I felt like God had to say about them.” Rob Jensen / No Lost Cause
