Up in Arms


Up in Arms

Formed nearly six months ago in the aftermath of the breakup of three Springfield rock bands, Up In Arms came together with the “common state of mind to bring the best music they can into the Midwest and relight the lost spark of Pop-Punk in the area,” and they’re on their way to accomplishing the mission. Likened to Green Day and Blink 182, band members Paul Bill, Jared McDonald, Brendan Antonacci and Gino Serra say, “Due to the wide array of previous experiences and environments, Up in Arms naturally has an exciting combination of separate elements to create their signature sound.” This Friday the band releases Glory Days as a debut EP-CD, and are “gearing up for every live show they can possibly be a part of,” including an upcoming tour. They’ve already shared the stage with bands Set It Off and Divided by Friday and were featured as the daily download on WQLZ. Looks like UIA are headed for glory days indeed.
