Punk-Rock outfit Poor Me return with their epic 4th studio album, Stalemate.

Denver-based band Poor Me emerged from the shadows in 2010, formed by members Brett Delaney (vocals), Nick Chmel a.k.a GIR (drums), Nick Butler (guitar), Jason McWhinnie (guitar/backups), and Mike Goyn (bass/backups). Having experienced some success in their local area as well as further afield, Poor Me is best known for their epic live performances and commanding stage presence. 2 albums, several singled and a number of EP’s down, the band are far from strangers in the game as they return to offer out album number 3, Stalemate.

10-tracks long this magnificent album stays true to its roots, offering a contemporary and exciting new twist on classic punk and rock n’ roll, weaving the two distinct genres together to create a vibrant and complex tapestry of sounds, textures and exhilarating beat drops. Inspired by the sheer chaos and global, collective disappointment in the year 2020, Poor Me embarked on a mission to create a soundtrack of hope in response to what was many of our worst years to date. Fast drums, muscular riffs, and razor-wire lyrics unite to document a world more f*cked than ever.

Speaking om the message behind the Stalemate album, lead singer Delaney explains:

 “We aren’t a party band,” says Delaney. “We want the songs to have a message of solidarity, be rich in empathy, and make people think.”

It’s this empathy that serves as Poor Me’s backbone, but it doesn’t come without a note of hope—this is positive music about making the world a better place, in spite of everything else. Featuring previously released hits ‘Heartsick’ and ‘Lovestruck’, Stalemate documents and narrates a number of poignant themes whilst maintaining the thrilling fist-pumping, hair-raising performance for which Poor Me are known and loved.
