“Even as Vans Warped Tour and festivals specifically catering to pop-punk and emo fade away, the best of those bands will continue to fuel the undercards of monster regional fests like Bunbury and new groups honing their riffs will hopefully continue to fill the posters’ bottom rows. Enter a band called You vs Yesterday, an Ohio group whose third-wave pop-punk sound leaps from the speakers and reminds us just how much we loved those early All Time Low and Mayday Parade records of the mid-‘00s. Led by soaring vocalist Kramer Welker, the outfit's sound is hyper-polished. As we await the four-piece’s debut LP coming later this year, check the guys out if you’re wandering the Bunbury grounds.” - Billboard
