Dayton, Ohio's Save the Lost Boys carried the spirit of late-'90s and early-aughts pop-punk into 2013, when they started as the Peter Pan-inspired Lost Boys (formerly Life After Liftoff).
Influenced by bands like blink-182 and New Found Glory, the quartet -- Lee Weiss (vocals/guitar), Josh Hall (vocals/bass), Brandon Koflowitch (drums), and Anthony DiCaro (guitar) -- veered toward the poppier side of the pop-punk spectrum, crafting anthems with big choruses and an energetic delivery. Save the Lost Boys independently issued their first EP, Sleepless Nights, in 2013, selling out the pressing in just four days while on the Warped Tour. With extensive touring and recording, they eventually signed with Victory Records and announced their LP Temptress in 2016. The album was released that summer with production assistance from Tyler Smyth (Dangerkids). ~ Neil Z. Yeung, Rovi
