About

  • The Softer Side are back with a brand new EP, Rise from the Embers!

    It's been 8 years since their last release, but Jacksonville, FL's The Softer Side are back with a brand new EP, Rise from the Embers, showcasing hard hitting rockers and blazing melodic punk. Once a solid staple of the late 90's/early 2000's Jacksonville punk rock scene, which included bands such as Inspection 12, Yellowcard, and Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, The Softer Side have assembled 6 new songs with pulsing drums, soaring vocal melodies, pounding bass and intelligent guitar riffs and licks that showcase the band's maturity and infectious songwriting.

  • “ If you're a label person taking notes on bands that sound like New Found Glory, mixed in with a bit of Lagwagon, guided by one heck of a vocalist, THE SOFTER SIDE need to be on your shortlist.”

  • “ These guys are good and have full potential, after all with so many qualities of so many great bands meshed together, they've got to be good. It's going to be interesting to see where they go.”
