All Systems Go! [pop punk/punk rock/Canada]

All Systems Go! is a Canadian punk rock group, and features members of Big Drill Car, Doughboys and The Carnations. The band was formed after Frank Daly and Mark Arnold's previous band Big Drill Car broke up in 1995.
All Systems Go!'s 1999 self-titled debut CD alternates between John Kastner (guitar) and Frank Daly (bass) on lead vocals. Blending hard rock, punk, vocal harmonies and guitar interplay from Mark Arnold, the album represents elements of both previous projects that formed its basis (i.e. Doughboys and Big Drill Car). Though a fairly short album, it was well-received by fans of the members' previous projects.
Frank Daly left the band the following year and was replaced by Thomas D'Arcy on bass and vocals. The resulting album, "Mon Chi Chi", repeats the process of divvying up songwriting duties between Kastner and newcomer D'Arcy. The album represented a greater number of collaborations than did its predecessor.
Thomas D'Arcy left the band shortly thereafter and was temporarily replaced by Karl Alvarez (Descendents/All). This line-up toured briefly but did not produce a studio album.
After several intervening years, All Systems Go! resurfaced somewhat in 2007 with an exclusive iTunes download-only release, "A Late Night Snack". This collection of outtakes and unreleased songs from the band's original line-up gave fans another chance to hear the work of the original lineup.

Хорошая команда из Канады. Играют поп-панк с легко узнаваемым влиянием Descendents и All, но в то же время присутсвуют элемены ньюскульного поп-панка, что в итоге приводит к довольно интересному звучанию.
