This California quintet hasn't released an album since 2002's What It Is to Burn, but that doesn't mean the band has been sitting on its ass. Last summer, Finch skipped the festival circuit -- including a prominent invitation from Warped -- to continue touring on the strength of Burn's ongoing popularity. The group also promised to go and write some new songs, but the results have yet to materialize. Like Groundhog Day writ large, Finch is doing the same thing this summer -- skipping Warped to tour on its own, all the while ignoring those pleas for a new record. That's pretty punk. -- Geoff Harkness
