Rage until your eardrums explode with Put It Aside as the "straightforward, hardcore straightedge band with '90s youth crew influence" celebrates the release of their latest record, How Soon You Forget... at Jump the Shark. As guitarist Jared Hutcherson told New Times: "This band and this record are things we wanted to do because we all love hardcore and being straightedge, and nothing anyone could say could make us feel otherwise." Sounds like a party to us.
