Montreal, Canada’s Twenty2 announce details for their third full length album, Dismissed, which will be released on Thousand Islands Records on July 22.
13 songs of blistering, melodic punk bordering on hardcore featuring Good Riddance members Luke Pabich (who also co-wrote the album) on guitar, and Sean Sellers on drums.
How did this album happen, you might ask? Well, in January 2021, original Twenty2 singer Jon H., isolated & confined, had some songs to write & words to sing (or yell). He decided to try to do the whole thing remotely, which was the style at the time. Why not reach out across the continent to a member of one of his favourite bands & major influence in Luke Pabich of Good Riddance? Lo & behold, Luke was also isolated & had time on his hands. So, this is how this project started.
Over the course of the next six months, Luke and Jon wrote this album basically over Zoom and a whole lot of Facetime.
When it was time to record, Luke asked long time band mate Sean Sellers if he would like a piece (he did). So just like that, they were recording.
Sean recorded drums with Cameron Webb at Maple Sounds in Orange County, CA. Luke recorded guitars with Olav Tabatabai at Noise Eater Recordings in Santa Cruz, CA. Jon & Dan recorded vocals & bass with Gautier Marinof at Tone Bender in Montreal, Canada.
Now, fresh out of The Blasting Room where Chris Beeble mixed and Jason Livermore mastered, they have an album in hand.
