I just got a hold of Tin Armor‘s 2007 debut, A Better Place Than I Have Been, and it is an endearing slice of indie/pop/punk. The band hails from Columbus, Ohio and just finished a tour with fellow Ohioans, the SAL-approved and awesome Annabel. Tin Armor bring to mind the warm tones of a band like Smoking Popes. Both teeter on the line between indie rock and pop punk with remarkable precision. I just ordered the band’s new 7-inch and I am hoping for more of the same. I will have a review up for that next month but until now, do yourself a favor and check out Tin Armor.
