Top Ten's: Modern Tribes Punk Rock Influences

Modern Tribes are a punk band from Shropshire. Earlier this year they released their debut EP named You Do Drugs (reviewed here). Here is the bands top ten punk rock influences.
10) The Hold Steady
– Craig Finn is a genius, I love the way he writes and sings. Separation Sunday is an amazing album.

9) Moose Blood - A new addition to our list of fave bands, we saw them live and they really blew us away, his voice conveys such emotion and the songs are really great.

8) Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes - His album is great, just angry aggressive and hits you in the face, love it!

7) The Gaslight Anthem - Their early records for us were amazing; his story telling and the growl in his voice were very influential for us.

6) The Menzingers - Their album On The Impossible Past blew us away; incredible lyrics and it conveyed a sense of emotion I hadn't really come across before.

5) The Front Bottoms - Great lyricist and influenced us massively, we listened to their albums non-stop on our summer tour. A great live band too.

4) Modern Baseball – Sports the album was incredible, we really like these.

3) Frank Turner - His early stuff influenced us massively: passion, anger and raw energy. Great live performer aswell.

2) Brand New – Deja Entendu and My Favourite Weapon are some of the best albums we've ever heard, the emotion in his songs were real eye openers for us. “Have another drink and drive yourself home. I hope there's ice on all the roads. And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt, and again when your head goes through the windshield.”

1) Joyce Manor – These guys were our biggest influence, songs like Constant Headache and Derailed were massive game changers for us and lyrics like “When you make a decent living, will you buy me a train set and a hat so I can sit in my room sending people away from the people they love” are incredible.
