They draw comparisons to Jimmy Eat World and Texas Is The Reason and have featured Jeremy Bolm of Touché Amoré on a previous song. Sweet Weapons plays a brand of punk rock that borrows equally from alt rock, pop punk and then adds some emo in on top for flavouring. Highlights include Not Golden, Blue Crush, Hoop Dreams and Month To Month. If you like you're emo with equal parts indie rock and punk pop there will be something for you on All Of My Best Friends Are Dogs

All Of My Best Friends Are Dogs works both plugged into headphones and blasting from speakers, Secret Weapons has a particularly rich, thick sound and they work to maintain a fuzzed out bliss. Highlights includede Low End Lonny, Month To Month,   These songs sound like the epitome of summer, catchy punk rock to be blasted from a car while driving to or from some kind of water or party. If you need some catchy emo influenced punk for a summer adventure, All My Best Friends Are Dogs will serve well.
