Our new favorite D.C. area politically charged punks are back with a new single. Celebration Summer have released "Patience in Presence," and if you have a special place in your heart for Dischord punk, you're going to love this one. The song fits the definition of melodic punk. It has too much of an edge to it to quite be pop punk, but it's also too melodic to truly be hardcore. This one is reminding me of Rites of Spring if they reeled it in a bit and tried to get some radio play but not quite making it to that level of mainstream. "Patience in Presence" is just a killer melodic punk song with gang vocals and is just begging to be pogoed to.
You can watch the video for "Patience in Presence" below. Patience in Presence, the album, is due out in late 2022. The album will be released in the US on A-F Records and Shield in Europe. You can find the pre-order here. For more on Celebration Summer, check out the band's Facebook and Instagram.
