Polaroids does that. You can tell each of them is just as passionate about the music as the next and it’s not one of those bands driven by one sole and lonely member.   Listen to/download  their full length below.  If you’d like to submit photos for the “Punk Jumps” section just send the picture, the band, and a little about it to



When not maiming his precious forehead with the mic, Mike, vocalist of north jersey hardcore/punk band, Gnar Life, spends more time airborne than grounded.  I think I’ve seen more pictures of this dude soaring than straight chillin’.  On top of that, he and his band show great support and passion for NJ Hardcore.  I played one show with these guys and attended another that they opened.  At both shows, most (if not all) of the members stayed and watched every band, sang what they knew, and danced respectively.  It is safe to say that they are a rarity, at least at the shows I have been playing/attending.  Anyway, without further ado…Gnar Life.  Be sure to listen to their full length which so gallantly reminds us that you don’t have to be serious all the time.
