Some episodes deep dive into a band’s full catalog like Taking Back Sunday, Blink-182 and The Starting Line. Their mosh pit days may have been replaced by soccer practice but their hearts are all pop-punk. All episodes are available wherever you stream your podcasts – just search High School Never Ends and please give them a follow @hsnepod on social media. 

Pop-Punk & Pizza #153: When The Sun Sets

This episode marks the return of Chicago pop punk band, When The Sun Sets, to the podcast. The band first appeared on Pop-Punk & Pizza Episode 67 in 2018. A lot has changed since then for the band, including new members and their signing to Lost Music Collective. They drop a new single This Friday, February 26th called, “Inside Out”. It was fun catching up with members Zack, Tyler, and Harrison! 

Much Love,

Jacques LaMore
