They are the Youth

Colour & Codeine come from the Philly area and play their own brand of alternative rock tunes that are equally hard and pop. Their sound borrows from the worlds of pop punk, hardcore, and pop music to create a sound that plays well with bands that range from metal to pop rock.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
