Twenty years ago, Deviates were considered “the future of punk rock.” The South Bay band encapsulated everything that was right about Southern California’s late ’90s/early 2000s punk scene, and they seemed poised to explode after consecutive summers on the Warped Tour and the success of ‘Time Is The Distance’, their sophomore effort. A year later, they weren’t even a band anymore. As it turns out, 2021 would be the year Deviates picked up their instruments again — and now they’re back with a renewed fire inside of them. The band’s third album, ‘Holding Out’, is a seven-song blast of SoCal punk rock new and old. A combination of recently written tunes alongside tracks created in the early 2000s for Deviates’ ill-fated original attempt at a third album, the South Bay punks’ latest work fuses every bit of melodic aggression that put the band on the cusp of stardom their first go-around with the more intelligent and mature approach that only decades of life experience can provide.
