It always feels a little unjust to grasp a listener's attention based on a band member's current or previous work with another artist, but the forthcoming 7" EP "These Times Weren't Made For You" will put an end to Elliot Babin's go-to connection as the drummer of Touche Amore, as it has the power to make Dad Punchers a household name. This EP marks the second release for Babin; the Dad Punchers "S/T" LP opened eyes last year and gave him the platform that he has earned today, writing deeply personal and often charming songs about the struggles of young adulthood that anyone can relate to. Taking cues from The Beach Boys, The Weakerthans and a range of No Idea Records alumni, Dad Punchers is a look into who Elliot Babin really is as a musician, songwriter and human being. 7" includes free download.
