The Skinny: Georgia pop-punk quintet Like Mike have released their new EP, If I Had A Say… and the whole thing can now be streamed below. Since forming in Marietta, Georgia in August 2011, Like Mike have showcased their energetic and high-octane brand of pop-punk across the Southern States, playing dates on the Vans Warped Tour as well as a series of regional headline runs.
The band cites influence from the older generation of alternative front-runners such as Senses Fail and Taking Back Sunday to the current crop of usual suspects including Set Your Goals and The Story So Far. This melting pot of inspiration is evident with their combination of hook heavy breakdowns and raw, unwavering delivery.
Still thriving under the tutelage of Ernest and Lester, Like Mike continue to perform an accessible and melodic brand of rock, both during their explosive live shows and on record. With If I Had A Say…, Like Mike are set to help kick start an exciting year for Georgia pop-punk.
