Substitute does not play pop-punk. Substitute does not play indie-rock. Substitute is a New York City punk rock and roll band with an emphasis on threatening guitars, fast-driving rhythms, and memorable hooks. Guitarist and vocalist Paul Ridenour, previously a member of bands such as Big Eyes and Lilith Velkor, fronts this fearsome foursome with fiery fury, setting clean melodies and powerful choruses against thickly distorted guitars in a way that is often compared to bands such as Wipers or Nirvana. But Substitute doesn’t stop at aping the greats—the band adds to the formula a ferocious pace and strong sense of urgency—as well as a slew of sweltering yet distinctly melodic guitar leads. Substitute distills rock and roll down to its most primal elements: mean guitars and unforgettable hooks. There’s no *substitute* for a band like this.
