KEXP has declared Christmas “the most pop-punk of holidays,” which explains why Dude York has issued a Christmas LP this season. Writes the station, “In the spectrum of holidays, Christmas hits with the same immediacy and mass appeal as its kindred spirit genre — both also have some serious haters who just ‘don’t get it, man.’ But it’s the emotional drama of Christmas and pop-punk that really feel intertwined. It’s a feeling that Dude York wholly grasps on their I-can’t-believe-this-actually-exists-but-it-also-totally-makes-sense new seasonal record, Halftime for the Holidays.” KEXP has an excellent review of the new LP, which can be read right here!
Halftime For The Holidays debuted on the NACC 200 last week, and we’d love to see a giant boost on the charts before its shelf life runs out on December 26! Give Dude York some late-year love by putting Halftime For The Holidays at #1 on your Top 30 this week. Just do it. You’ll feel good.
