Man, 5th grade was tough. Remember all those spelling tests? The brutal rounds of kickball? Starting a band that was profiled in Spin and New York magazine and and appearing in a Converse ad and playing SXSW and putting out an EP (now out of print) and then a full-length record?
Um, yeah. Me neither. But Brooklyn’s pop-punk girl-core trio Care Bears on Fire did just that starting back in ye olde 2005, and now the (relatively) grown (they’re now in their early teens) trio are releasing their second full-length album, Get Over It!, on S-Curve Records, featuring contributions from Fountains of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger.
