Review: Placeholder - I Don’t Need Forgiveness
This is kind of like a homecoming for me. Way back when I first started Figureheads the very first thing I reviewed was a demo by a group called Coastal from Pennsylvania. That band was threatened with legal action and forced to change their name by some nobodies from Utah. The name Placeholder, whether originally a joke or a Story So Far reference, stuck and these guys have stuck around. After the name change they put out an LP called Nothing Is Pure and an the EP Thought I Would Have Been Someone By Now. Ever since that first impassioned demo they have been pumping out “sad punk rock” and once again they have delivered punk rock suited to bum you out.
