Politically charged pop punk group from Chicago, Illinois. The Methadones were started as a side band by Dan Schafer (AKA Danny Vapid) in 1993. After only a few shows and with no real recordings to speak of, The Methadones were placed on hold, with Schafer's projects such as The Riverdales and The Mopes taking the spotlight. Then, in 1999, Schafer recruited fellow Mopes, B-Face and Dan Lumley and headed to Sonic Iguana in Lafayette IN, to record their debut record "Ill At Ease". After the recording, B-face and Lumley returned to their corners of the country due to geographical distance and commitments of their own. From there, Schafer went on to recruit fellow Chicagoans Pete Mittler and Mike Byrne (formerly Vindictives) to join. After several drummers, Michael Soucy, native to the Rhode Island and DC punk scenes, was enlisted to complete The Methadones. This core lineup has remained consistent since 2001 with five full length records under their belt. The band announced their split in 2010, but reunited again in 2014 to record an split single next to The Copyrights ans to play in several events and live concerts until nowadays.

The Methadones second album "career objective", originally released in 2002, re-mixed by Matt Allison at Atlas Studios, with a bonus track not on the original CD release. Matt re-built the album audio from the original masters, it sounds like they re-recorded the entire album from scratch. From there we had the new version of the album mastered by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering. Rounding out the package is completely new artwork designed by the band.
