Position: Former Web Editor
HQ: Orlando, FL (soon to be Cleveland, OH)
Nice to meet you! I'm Bryne Yancey, the former web editor for Alternative Press. Prior to joining AP full-time, I volunteered at Punknews.org and freelanced for Myspace Music and AP, writing reviews and such.
I enjoy 80s thrash metal, leather-jacket pop-punk, obscure 90s/2000s emo, contemporary crust-core, and plenty in between. I'm a big fan of pizza, nachos, dessert, sleeveless t-shirts, wearing shorts year-round, sunglasses, science fiction, dry humor, horror, the Florida Marlins, the Orlando Magic, the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Tampa Bay Lightning. Vinyl is great; Spotify is equally and differently great. Green Day's "Dookie," Bad Religion's "All Ages," and the Suicide Machines' "Battle Hymns" changed my life. I don't think our scene has ever been as exciting or promising as it is right now.
Top ten albums OF ALL TIME (but in no particular order):
Saves The Day - Stay What You Are
Green Day - Warning
Jimmy Eat World - Futures
Snapcase - Designs For Automotion
Hot Water Music - Caution
Metallica - ...And Justice For All
The Suicide Machines - Battle Hymns
