Episode 025: Justin Pierre (10-Year Motion City Soundtrack Retrospective)


For our first show of the new year, we’re heading back to 2005 to chronicle Motion City Soundtrack’s breakthrough album, Commit This To Memory. Released on June 7, 2005, the Mark Hoppus-produced album served as Motion City Soundtrack’s coming-out party and established them as one of the strongest acts in the burgeoning pop-punk/emo music scene thanks to songs like “Everything Is Alright” and “When ‘You’re’ Around.” To celebrate the album’s 10-year anniversary, MCS are embarking on a US tour, during which they’ll be playing the album front to back. I caught up with MCS frontman Justin Pierre just days before the tour’s first show to reflect on the album’s creation, how his songwriting approach has changed over the years, and much more.
