Bardown Breakdown – Episode 189 – Koyo Bardown Breakdown

Today’s episode of Bardown Breakdown is with TJ and Harold from one of Long Island’s up-and-coming hardcore bands in Koyo! We talk about their extensive touring schedule, including their just announced tour with Bayside and I Am The Avalanche, we discussed their relationship with Pure Noise Records, and how, despite the constant desire of others to classify their music, how they’re rooted in what they believe. We, of course, touch upon the state of hockey, the state of the islanders, and much more! Give it a listen and don’t forget to follow! Power chords and crashing boards. Mikey and Tom talk music, hockey, and anything else that gets in their way. Tom and Mikey are lifelong friends that grew up on Long Island during the glory days of alternative music where our local bands were As Tall As Lions, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Bayside, The Sleeping, Envy on the Coast, you get the point. We spent many nights together at The Downtown, catching any pop-punk, indie, hardcore, or emo band that came through. This was not a phase, Mom! Fast forward 15 years and we are still just as passionate about the scene as we were during our girl jeans and youth XL band tees days. Tom and Mikey are also diehard New York Islanders fans, but as we like to say we are #notanislespodcast. As we got older we realized we can like more than one thing and running beside our love for music has always been our love for hockey. We have realized we are not alone in this thinking, actually there are many of us that love these two things! This podcast explores just how connected they are! NEW EPISODE EVERY TUESDAY!
