It was only a matter of time until the kids who grew up listening to the edgy emo-tinged rock of the mid-2000s grew up and started playing in the sandbox built by bands like Jimmy Eat World, Paramore, Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance.

Here's the premiere of one of its songs, the energetic, propulsive "The Pace Car."
