Bursting onto mainstream radio with their 2001 release Start Static, which included the hit songs “Pretty Girls (the Way)” and “Bouncing off the Walls Again,” Sugarcult started as something to tap your foot to, even sing along with, but maybe forget as soon as the next song popped on the radio. Now, with their latest release Lights Out (Artemis Records), the band has made the transition from pop-punk to mature alt-rock. Lights Out is their third album­ and it boasts a decidedly polished sound. The band is currently on tour promoting their latest effort, making a stop at the Buffalo Icon on Saturday (Sept. 23) at 6pm. Also performing are The Spill Canvas, Halifax, Maxeen and So They Say.
