Editor’s Note:  “Gone Are The Good Days” by amazing easycore band Chunk! No Captain Chunk! is out this Friday via Fearless Records.  Bert Poncet, vocalist of Chunk! No Captain Chunk! joins the Madness To Creation Podcast for the second season and 19th episode to talk about history, France revolting, cell phone addiction, and how the band has evolved in their music.  “Gone Are The Good Days” is such a diverse listen.  In this record, fans will hear the familiar sounds of the breakdowns, catchy singalong choruses and driving hooks and beats in the arrangements.  However, Chunk! No Captain Chunk! have really matured from their days of “In Friends We Trust.” You will hear love songs in “Marigold” and “Tongue Tied”, and you will also hear songs related to mental health concerns in “Bitter”, “Drift Away” and “Painkillers.”  You will even hear a saxophone solo in one of the songs! “Gone Are The Good Days” is one of the most sonically pieces of ear candy you will hear in 2021.  Pick up the record this Friday via Fearless Records.  Fans can check out Chunk! No Captain Chunk! on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and their official website.  Fans can find this podcast on Spotify, Spreaker, SoundCloud, iHeartRadio, YouTube, JioSaavn, Podchaser, Podcast Addict and Google Podcasts
