Flashback Friday


I’m sure everyone who is a reader of CMZ knows who Relient K is, but if you don’t, get out from under your rock already, it’s 2011 for goodness sakes. When Relient K was first getting its feet wet, they had some help along the way in the form of Ace Troubleshooter, who took Relient K under its wing and showed them the ropes while touring together. Ace Troubleshooter was a four piece pop-punk band who toured non-stop. They released two independent albums prior to their big break, 2000’s BEC Recordings debut, Ace Troubleshooter. Ace Troubleshooter was a textbook example of catchy, melodic, memorable pop-punk. It featured gems such as “Tonight”, “Yesterday”, and “1 Corinthians 13”. Their next album, 2002’s The Madness of The Crowds, featured a band trying to experiment with their pop-punk. As a result of this slight change in sound, The Madness of The Crowds received a mixed reaction from fans of the band. With their next release, 2004’s It’s Never Enough, the band moved even farther away from their pop-punk beginnings, incorporating a more straightforward rock sound. After the release of It’s Never Enough, lead singer John Warne decided to become the bassist for Relient K thus putting an end to Ace Troubleshooter, but not before they left us with three very good albums. Ace Troubleshooter will always have a place in the hearts of those who were able to hear their music. Though long gone, they are not forgotten.

    One of the first bands and pop punk acts I’ve listened to. I’ll always love Ace Troubleshooter.
