Local punk rock band PEARS — made up of alumni from bands like The Breton Sound, Fatter Than Albert and The Lollies, among others — already has generated buzz among the national punk press following its debut EP earlier this year. The band's first full-length, Go to Prison, is out today. The band celebrates with a release show opening for Massachusetts punks A Wilhelm Scream at 10 p.m. at Siberia (2227 St. Claude Ave). Tickets $12.

Stream the album here. Vocalist Zach Quinn's rapid fire, pitch perfect ferocity and humor (the band's logo goofs on the Fear logo) propels the band's melodic hardcore punk, which zig zags in its speed, cynicism, ferocious guitars and killer melodies somewhere between the Descendents and NOFX. The band also covers the Ramones' "Judy is a Punk," which the band notes, "was written by some dude in a leather jacket."
