Magnolia Park have been one of the best bands to emerge from the US pop-punk scene in recent years.

The Orlando, Florida group are constantly releasing new music. Just earlier this month they released a track called Homicide. While April saw them drop a deluxe edition version of last year’s noteworthy full-length, ‘Baku’s Revenge’.

They’ve now released another track, and it sees them team up with fellow Floridian rockers, 408.

The track is called ‘Manic’ and sees the quintet showcase their vibrant, energetic brand of pop-punk.

Magnolia Park guitarist Tristan Torres called ‘Manic‘ the “ultimate break-up anthem.” “The inspiration was a combination of everyone’s worst break up,” He explained.

The video pays tribute to one of pop-punk’s most influential bands, blink-182, and their 1997 track – ‘Dammit’.

“The video process was awesome, we booked this small movie theater that a lot of the band used to go to so it was pretty nostalgic,” says Torres.

On the inclusion of 408, Torres commented, “The idea behind involving 408 was just to show some love to the scene down in Orlando. We slowly became friends and we’re both always at the Audio Compound so it just made sense.”

‘Manic’ isn’t the first time Magnolia Park and 408 have teamed up.
