Pop & Hiss will covering the South by Southwest Music Conference in Austin, Texas, from March 18-22. Most of our time there will be spent chasing down bands that don't live in our own backyard, so in the days leading up to the industry event, we'll be looking at some noteworthy locals heading to Texas.

Who: Roll the Tanks

What to listen to: "Police Me," which you can stream below, offers a nice snapshot of Roll the Tanks' arena-ready punk rock, with its descending melodies, shout-along chorus and an up-all-night vocal scruff. Coming to Los Angeles via Massachusetts, Roll the Tanks' late 2008 debut, "Suffer City," melds some old-school crust -- vocalist Danny Carney sometimes sounds as if he's channeling the Clash's Joe Strummer -- with a briskly clean, contemporary feel. Check "Bonnie Brae," a local street that was also romanticized by the Twilight Singers, for an acoustic-enhanced clap-along. - Los Angeles Times

Roll The Tanks is a band governed by few doctrines and represented by unknown forces. Born from Lowell and now incubating in Los Angeles. They adhere to what they know and belong to nothing.

Currently in the studio recording their third and most ambitious record to date with producer Fred Archambault, RTT are poised for a break out year in 2011. Adding veteran drummer Joe Sirois, the trio has settled into a core line-up that won over audiences during a month long residency in Los Angeles @ The Silverlake Lounge.
