FUTURE TALENT #15- Life On The Sideline

Meet Life on the Sideline. Originating from Hartford, Connecticut, the pop-punk quintet are making a name for themselves on the scene, despite only being together one year. Having already supported the likes of "I Call Fives" and "State Champs" their infectious anthems are pulling in fans left, right and centre. 

Before supporting fast rising Pop Punk icons "Major League" for part of their December US tour vocalist, Nick DiCiancia took time out to sit down with Est.1987 to talk influences, recording the E.P and putting the band together via "Craiglist".
