The Best Revenge – Paper + Plastick Records
Senior Discount’s label debut explodes onto the scene. “The Best Revenge” has a release date of July 13th, 2018 on Paper + Plastick Records. The band was personally signed to the label by founder Vinnie Fiorello from Less Than Jake, and was recently added to play a date on Warped Tour by founder Kevin Lyman. As of July 23rd, 2018 the band’s lead single “Afterlife” has achieved over 23,000 plays on Soundcloud alone in the ten days since release. Mash-up DJ sensation Girl Talk has said “These guys slay on record and live!” about the band.
Senior Discount has played hundreds of shows on the East Coast with acts like Sum 41, Gym Class Heroes, Girl Talk, Streetlight Manifesto, Anti-Flag, Guttermouth, The Ataris, and many more. “The Best Revenge” is their third full-length album and lead singer Chuck Staton has said “This album is truly about the heart of the band. On this one, we made sure that this one gives you the clearest, most direct picture of what we believe in as a band; energetic, fast, upbeat, dark, poppy punk rock!” The band conjures up the musical atmosphere of blink-182, NOFX, Green Day, Rancid and more.
The band is multi-facted. In the world of film, lead singer Chuck Staton has worked for years and collaborates with Impractical Jokers’ Brian Quinn as well as Comic Book Men’s Bryan Johnson and Walt Flanagan on filmwork for their podcast Tell ‘Em Steve-Dave, which often uses Senior Discount’s music. Staton has also started a podcast (The Chuck and Brad Podcast) in conjunction with Senior Discount, focusing largely on the band and the surrounding punk scene. Guests include musicians from Bowling for Soup, Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Tsunami Bomb and many more.
