This Pittsburgh punk institution has always been fervently political, so there’s no questioning their relevance during these “days that test your heart and soul,” as they put it on their 10th album, 2017’s American Fall. While that concise LP invites comparisons to Green Day’s “punk rock opera”American Idiot, it’s more of a straight shot, with the band delivering galvanizing pop-punk choruses again and again (plus the hardcore jolt “Liars” for good measure). With Stray from the Path and Sharptooth.
