Progressive-punk quartet, Belmont have announced new single ‘SSX Trickmont’, following on from their latest record ‘Aftermath’ which saw Rock Sound calling them“Quite possibly the next great pop-punk band” .

Like the sprawling suburbs that surround their hometown, BELMONT’s music is expansive – at times bordering on limitless. The Chicago trio are boxed in only by their own ambition, gleefully melding pop-punk, metal, jazz fusion, hip-hop, math rock and more into a deliriously complex, but delightfully engaging, swirl of underground adrenaline.

The group – Taz Johnson (vocals), Brian Lada (drums, guitar, programming) and Jason Inguagiato (guitar) – grew from high school friends to become what Rock Sound hailed as “quite possibly the next great pop-punk band” with a razor-sharp sound capable of stacking up alongside the heavy hitters of the genre’s new decade. Their 2016 EP Between You & Me and 2018 self-titled full-length (the latter hitting No. 2 on the Billboard Heatseekers and Alternative New Artist Albums charts) quickly introduced the Windy City’s newest up-and-comers to the scene at large, all while hinting at more expansive influences that lay below the surface of their prog-punk sound.

Those new sounds are fully unleashed on AFTERMATH, the band’s Pure Noise Records debut, driving a chasm between Belmont and their peers with a stunning – but maybe not surprising – evolution. Led by the classical training of Inguagiato and Lada, both of whom studied at Berklee College of Music, as well as the pure instinctual prowess of the collective, AFTERMATH brings never-before-heard influences to the forefront in a brand-new way. 

Alongside billion-streamed producer Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Neck Deep, Real Friends), Belmont hit the studio in summer 2021, binging records from rising hip-hop artists like Pouya and Terror Reid while kitchen-sinking their own songs, stacking their musical Jenga tower as high as humanly possible.

“We’re a very collaborative band,” Inguagiato explains. “We did a ton of writing in the studio, where everyone was able to get their hands in and mix shit up.”

In a landscape more genre-less than ever, it’s the seamless, at-times effortless blending of disparate sounds that guides AFTERMATH on a hyper-modern tour through musical styles – steadied by the pop-punk energy that’s won Belmont legions fans on tours with the likes of Sleeping With Sirens, Grayscale and Such Gold.

Belmont will be hitting the road this Autumn across the US with label mates, Can’t Swim.
