The heart of Texas is feeling a pop punk palpitation with Austin’s Gold Steps. Formed of transplants finding their way in music and life, the band brings influences from across North America. Their energy isn’t just apparent in their music, but also in their tireless pursuit of performance; since their May 2016 debut as a full band, Gold Steps has played dozens of shows, recently branching out from Austin to other cities in Texas. Gold Steps has also made their mark by supporting fellow Texas pop punk bands as much as they’ve promoted their own, through promoting, running and attending shows and wearing local merch on stage and in photos.
