Healthy punk scenes generally start with a misfit collection of do-it-yourself kids who simply share an attitude and love of a particular style. They accommodate touring bands from similar scenes with basement shows, a couch to sleep on and promises of future split seven-inch records. Dear Interceptor resides in the heart of the young Duluth punk scene and plays a big part in keeping it healthy. More recently, the band’s original thrash sound has revealed a catchy, pop-ish, innocent teen-angst side to hardcore songwriting thanks to guitarists Joel Kunze and Zack Pederson, vocalist Connor Slawson, bassist Tori Heidenreich and drummer Caden Dudek.
