gofastanddontlookback asked: Hey Open Letters. This is wierd cos despite being 30 whole years old and having been into punk a long time, I've never really written to a band before, maybe except whilst ordering merch maybe. But, I like your band so much it made me want to pen this sappy note. My girlfriend of nearly four years just moved from the UK to Sweden and its mega tough. Life sucks, but one of the few things making it better and me feel less mental is your record. So thanks. Really. Emo rant over. Wow. Yours, Matt x
That means so much to us. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I really put myself in a vulnerable position writing these lyrics. To hear from people such as yourself makes everything worth it. Hopefully you like the new stuff. Cheers,
I’m fucking done, this life is no more fun, I’m gonna kill myself.
Tell me to stay with you for one more day for sake of mental health.
I spend every single day alone, I might as well deactivate my phone cuz there’s noone left.
I don’t even wanna try no more, waking up is such a fucking chore,…

As a band that only plays all ages shows, the zoo zhop getting shut down effects us incredibly. The city does nothing to support culture without ageism. We have nothing now. Its a pipedream, but for the love of crom, please sign this.
Open Letters // 1-6
I’ve struck pop punk gold. If you turn your nose up at the scent of the genre, well then you’re gonna have to just get over yourself. I know that a lot of it can be painfully obnoxious, but if done correctly it can be a heck of a lot of fun. Take Vancouver trio Open Letters for example.
Having a lot more in common with punk than pop, these three young kids absolutely shred their way through this 5-song EP. There is a lot to love about this EP, and it all starts with how aggressive it is. Yes, it’s really catchy music with high-pitched (verging on nasally) melodic vocals, but the music is furious and the lyrics are packed with anthems of youthful angst. Lines like “Eat shit and die!” and “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, fuck everything!” are delivered with a laugh and a wry smile. Also in true form the song titles are ridiculous and ridiculously long. It just goes to show you how much fun this band is having and how much fun they want you to have.
Their EP 1-6 is available as pay-what-you-want on their Bandcamp, but know that any and all money made from the digital sales goes straight to the WISH Drop-In Center Society (a non-profit that helps women involved in the sex slave trade). That’s just another reason to be in love with this band.
Thankyou so much! :’)
