If you're a fan pop/punk/rock with strong 3 part harmonies wrapped around face rocking guitars, catchy bass lines, insane "travis esque" drums, jaw dropping lead guitar, and more vocal hooks than a fisherman's tackle box, then you should take a listen. think NOFX meets Weezer and Jimmy Eat World.

Biography

Final Round is a 4-piece rock/punk/pop band from Chicago, formed by Matt Hampson, Kevin Mager, and Dan Lowes in 2003 from the ashes of their former band The Bruce Chi Affair. Their goal for Final Round was to create music that emphasizes lead guitar with three-part harmonies to produce songs that undeniably rock. The fast-paced high-energy feel of their songs reveal their pop-punk roots - influenced by bands like MxPx and Fenix tx - while the lead guitar and rock influence can be linked to their love for other bands like NoFX, Unwritten Law, and Weezer. Final Round holds a special rank as one of few bands that feature three lead vocalists. At any given performance, Matt, Kevin, and Dan, bring their own styles to each of their songs but create an overall sound that is distinctly Final Round.

Lyrics

Let Her Go

Written By: Final Round

My Days were meant to fall in line with hers; but now I wouldn't mind missing one day or two

there are thoughts of wanting it over, that I'd rather stay under cover but no I can't turn my back on my lover cause i lover her, I just can't explain it.

I'll let her go gotta just let her go and I ask myself do I really wanna see her go

now would you say I'm lost with out her there? but if thats true why do i feel so empty when I'm around her?

there are thoughts of wanting it over, that I'd rather stay under cover but no i can;t turn my back on my lover cause i lover her, I just can;t explain I'll let her go gotta just let her go and I ask myself do I really wanna see her go

I't won't be the same, If i'm letting go forget guilt and shame, I'll just go

Now would you say I'm lost with out her there? But if that's true why do I feel lighter?

I'll just let her go got to just let her go and I ask myself do I really wanna see her go

and I ask myself do I really want to see her go?
