Right now these guys are one of the industryís best kept secrets. If youíre in to any kind of pop-punk music or post hardcore music you need to check these guys out. Their first album, ďArcade RockĒ was okay, but this follow up ďThe League of TomorrowĒ is a complete album and one of the most fun albums to come out in the past few months. Karate High School is a brighter version of one of my other favorite new bands- Idiot Pilot. Both of them merge techno beats and synthesizer use with different genres of music. In this instance Karate High school merges it with pop punk and post hardcore. Itís fresh, itís different, but most of all itís really good. I will say this about the post-hardcore stuff. Either youíre going to scream through a whole album and thatís going to be your genre or youíre not. Donít have a scream track or two mixed in with all of this bright/shiny pop music. The hardcore stuff is okay from these guys but the movement from one of the pop tracks to the hardcore stuff is jarring enough to make you fudge your pants. The scream stuff isnít bad, the pop stuff is just so much better that thereís really no point to have that stuff included on the album. This is a near complete album from one of my favorite new bands. Look for this album to start getting Karate High School some major label interest. Itís marketable, itís good, and like I said itís incredibly fresh. This is a band that every fan of undiscovered music should check out.
