Song Of The Week: 9/25/16
Song: "It Could Have Been Me"
Artist: From Plan To Progress
Album: "Evolution In The Wrong Direction"
Place Of Origin: Brighton, United Kingdom
Years Active: 2005-2011 ???
WHAT I THINK THE SONG IS ABOUT:
"It Could Have Been Me" appears to be a song about two people. The guy, who talked to her about his depression and his desire to end his life, and the girl, who listens to his stories and spent the time with him in hospital rooms. It's a pretty sad song lyrically, knowing that he did in fact go through with his warnings of ending his own life and she is left to grieve something she knew was inevitable.

CURRENT STATUS OF FROM PLAN TO PROGRESS:
The U.K.'s own, From Plan To Progress got it's start as a band back in 2005. They self-released their first EP in that very same year called "Bombs, Towns And Chords". In 2008, the band hooked on with Lime Records, who released their first full length album, "Evolution In The Wrong Direction". Most recently, which isn't really that recent at all, the band released "Ink Stains & Incidents" in 2010 through Fond Of Life Records. The band's style isn't breaking any new music territory with their melodic hardcore brand of punk rock. I'd say if you made up a recipe to achieve From Plan To Progress' sound, I would start with the melodic hardcore stylings of bands like Strung Out and Propagandhi. Then I would sprinkle in some pop punk tendencies of bands such as MxPx and Unwritten Law, especially the songs of those bands that are more uptempo. Then I would add the punk vocal stylings of a band like Autopilot Off. Mix that up and you'd get a little bit of an idea of what From Plan To Progress sounds like. The band really hasn't been heard from since about 2011. I haven't heard anything about them officially breaking up, but it's been about 5 years since they have been heard from so it could be a wrap for From Plan To Progress.
