"System Restore-Suburban Drones"

Location: Casper, WY

Our Favorite Track(s): Self-Inflicted, Suburban Drones

Sounds Like: NOFX and Bad Religion

System Restore's yet to be released album Suburban Drones portrays exactly what the title sells: anarchist-ish ideals mixed with the self-deprecating yet unclear tone of a suburban teenager growing up in hectic times. Or better summarized, a kid going through 2018. As much as I would love to put this band down for it's obvious inspiration from bands such as the Offspring, NOFX and Bad Religion, it's hard to overlook shining moments of complete originality.

Self-Inflicted, brings well-crafted lyrics that most listeners will gloss over. Additionally, the fast paced instrumentals mixed with a somewhat melodic drum beat at times kept me engaged and a kind of energized. Songs like the Jackal, on the other hand, despite their attempt at originality, lack a defined thought or meaning. Not to mention, specifically in the Jackal, the instrumentals not only bore me, but completely end up letting me down in its ending, which seemed like a possible breath of something engaging ended up being the band wrapping it up. I didn't know whether I should have felt cheated or relieved.

This song aside, however, the title track Suburban Drones packs a powerful punch of politics and amazing instruments and originality. Despite it's obvious influence from Bad Religion, this song turns the cynical attitude echoed by modern punk bands on its head without seeking to offend while also being obvious about it. Not to mention the instrumentals of this one! It's something you would just have to hear for yourself, trust me.

Overall this album's staying power in 2018 seems to be high, and most albums are; however, this album seems to landmark 2018 instead of pandering into it. It documents the views of the disgruntled youth while also staying safe of references that will die with time. The band itself seem to be heavily influenced by punk from the past, but show glimmers at attempting something new and trying to reach a different comfort zone. This album as a whole would earn a 83 from me with a higher score depending on the future endeavors of this band. - Colorado Punk Rock Army


Still working on that hot first release.



Formed in late 2016, System Restore is on a mission to Rise. The one year anniversary of the band's first performance has seen them on 3 regional tours opening for bands like Architects, Avenues, OC45, Some kind of Nightmare, Version Two, FOL, The Hybrids, and many others. Additionally, they recorded their debut EP at the legendary Blasting Room, produced by Andrew Berlin (engineer-rise against) and mastered by Jason Livermore. The album was shopped,  and quickly scooped up by No Affiliation Records of Phoenix AZ, releasing in physical form and on all streaming/download platforms June 24th, 2018. And if all of that wasn't enough, drummer Jeff Nock was recently awarded an artist endorsement with Pork Pie Percussion. Playing melodic, So-Cal style punk rock in the vein of Bad Religion or Rise Against, System Restore continue to travel extensively, showing the world why they are the hardest working guys in punk rock.
