Pardon the Scars Release "Caged Inside" with TLG Entertainment/INgrooves

Pardon the Scars Release "Caged Inside" with TLG Entertainment/INgrooves

Pardon The Scars hits the melodic aggressive sound of rock as they cut through the wire with their single "Caged Inside". Their signature sound is undeniably a blend of 90's metal spun together with progressive modern motion. "Caged Inside" seeks to break through the barriers and markedly strikes the identity of what Pardon The Scars is unleashing. Having recently joined forces with TLG Entertainment/INgrooves, you can hear and feel what Pardon The Scars' single "Caged Inside" is bringing to the world of rock n roll power.


'"Caged Inside" is a look at the struggle we sometimes face within ourselves. Those times when we're trying to appear happy or "put together", but there's this voice of doubt, anger, and hostility that is constantly trying to push its way to the front. It wants to come out and play but... Surely, we know better."' - James Tangman of Pardon The Scars

"We are who we are. We are all flawed. We are the scarred."

- Pardon the Scars

Hailing from the Florida panhandle, Pardon The Scars deliver a tapestry of melodic, aggressive hard rock with infectious melodies and arrangements. Their sonic signature is a blend of alternative, progressive and Nu-Metal, seamlessly interwoven with their modern hard rock attack. Pardon the Scars puts every ounce of themselves into not only their songwriting but their live performance as well. Such dedication to their craft is evidence that pain can transcend into something more - a perfectly imperfect hard rock band known as Pardon The Scars.

“Influenced by the likes of 90′s alternative rock and metal legends such as Alter Bridge, Foo Fighters, and Chevelle, this four-piece hails all the way from Pensacola, Florida. Similar to their influences, Pardon The Scars creates a heavy and intimidating soundscape before breaking the tension with James Tangman’s compelling croons. With hints of nu-metal, grunge, and stoner rock, this group does not hold back...”

— Riley Rowe, Alternative Nation

“From twothirtyeight to This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb, Pensacola has seen its fair share of angsty musical exports over the years. It may be time to add one more group to that list. just named local four-piece rockers Pardon The Scars to its latest installment of bands to watch.” — Staff Reports, Pensacola News Journal

“On their long-awaited EP, Pensacola rockers Pardon The Scars are all about the melody in between the guitar riffs. With modern rock sensibilities and a DIY work ethic, they’re one of the most recognizable names in the area’s rock realm for good reason. "Artifacts" proves their staying power and their commitment to producing memorable tunes on their own terms. With multilayered production and a moody tune, the music is bound to turn up soon on a radio station near you.”

— Beachcomber Magazine, Destin
