Virginia Beach, VA’s Turnover released their debut LP Magnolia today via Run For Cover Records. Two acclaimed release into their short career – a debut EP and a split 7″ with Citizen – Virginia’s Turnover have quickly grabbed the attention of a scene of angst filled teens and twenty-somethings who grew up on Drive-Thru records classics and 90’s grunge radio.

California’s a legendary place for punk rock having birthed bands such as The Offspring, AFI, Guttermouth, and of course The Bombpops; the latter of whom recently released an EP entitled Stole The TV via Red Scare.

Aficionado: a person who likes, knows about, and appreciates a usually fervently pursued interest or activity. Based on the definition, I am sure the band Aficionado know many people who are exactly like this towards their music… the same music that can be found on their self-titled effort, released in 2011 via No Sleep Records.

At the time of this writing, the band has never once taken a hiatus and has played 551 more times (yes, they’ve kept count) all over America and nine other countries. Ten, even five years ago, it would have been relatively easy to simply dub Grabass a really great punk rock band. Today, this would be somewhat of a misnomer.
