Canadian Punk Rock trio BLOCK PARENT release new album “Sick Year, Bro!”

1 min read

Helming proudly from small town Cambridge, Ontario Canada, BLOCK PARENT is a three piece unit focused on playing coming of age, self deprecating punk rock. By making waves in both the thriving underground punk scene throughout the 519 and greater punk community of Ontario, they have played alongside The Dirty Nil, Fucked Up, ’68, Single Mothers and more.

Following their first vinyl release from Thousand Island Records and Pink Lemonade Records, Block Parent constructed a debut LP that perfectly captures their relentless energy, and heartfelt comedy. ‘Sick Year, Bro!’ cements Block Parent’s punk rock identity into a tight 30 minute package.

The band comment this new release and dig deeper into its meaning: “Growing up is a painful and beautiful experience. It mutates and morphs ya into the chud loving critter you never thought you’d see reflecting back at ya in a pool of your own vomit.

We hold onto the pains of nostalgia with our beer soaked fists while we anxiously hide our disdain and discomfort for a scary and confusing world….but we have each other.

We’ll grow old together and we’ll absolutely get weirder. In the end, all we can do is embrace our flaws, accept our self destruction, face our anxieties and hold on to what we love….past present and future.

Here’s to you Cambridge, you beautiful and disgusting wretched hive of friendship and isolation. It’s not much….but it’s ours.”
