"Miscommunication" EP Review
Before It's Too Late recently released this five track EP. They recently shared that each of the songs tell a unique story of coming face to face with different problems. The two key points they want listeners to take away from the EP would be "hope" and that "you are not alone". "No Name" opens up the EP with a whirlwind of pop punk sound. The uplifting chorus is tremendous and the song is full of adrenaline and never lets up. It's a great track to introduce the listener to what they have to offer. "Runaways" features an almost pop rock sound that even has some gang vocals which adds that element of depth to the track. It's a great track and will surely get the live crowd moving. "Go To Hell" is a bouncy, infectious track that'll be a fan favorite in no time. The track will have a lot of jumping along to it as well as clapping to the bridge. The track brings to mind the catchiness of Tonight Alive. "Message From Below" is a slower track which shows a different, more intimate side of the band. It's pretty dynamic in its delivery and it just oozes raw emotion. "Hurricane In Me" closes out the EP in high octane style. The track takes the EP to 11 and really leaves things on a high note. The EP is pop punk pleasure and should be an instant listen to every fan of pop punk.
Before It's Too Late look to leave their mark on the pop punk scene with their "Miscommunication" EP.
1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “Before It's Too Late” and is there any meaning behind it?
We had all been in past projects with someone else from our current band. We all kept in touch after those projects came to an end and eventually this lead to us all getting together one day, which resulted in Before It’s Too Late. We all have different influences in music that helped to create our current sound. Our sound is influenced pop punk, grudge, metal, and pop.
The name "Before It’s Too Late" was brought to the band by Nick. He got the name idea from someone in his psychology class. During a class discussion on suicide prevention, someone had said that they wanted to help others Before It’s Too Late.
2. What do you want listeners to take away from the "Miscommunication" EP?
Each of the songs tells a unique story of coming face to face with different problems. The two key points we want listeners to take away from our EP would be “hope” and “you are not alone.” Music has helped each of us come to terms with different aspects of our lives, so we would like to be able to give that back to others.

You can bet that at least one thing will go wrong, but we always manage to deliver a high energy, emotion filled performance.

7. What’s your take on the current state of pop punk?
New Jersey has a thriving pop punk scene. The amount of energy and raw talent here is unreal. However, there could be more support for the local music scene. Nationally, we feel that pop punk is growing at a fast rate. There are more bands, more shows, and fans. It’s really a great time to be in a band.
8. What’s the current music scene like there in New Jersey both locally and state wide?
We feel that our local music scene is growing, but the music scene up in North Jersey is much more popular.
9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?
We as a band are against illegally downloading music. We believe that people should support all artists.
10. What’s next for Before It's Too Late?
We hope to play more shows than ever in 2017, expand our fan base, and hopefully release a new record later in the year.
