If you like: Envy, Suffocate For Fuck Sake, The Carrier
This band is pretty awesome. As mentioned below (even though no one will read it because there's no pictures or "If you like"s), I saw this band play with Pianos Become The Teeth. It was similar to seeing I Am Alaska open for a bunch of metal and pop punk bands - don't ask. They came on after a thrashy metal break-everything-in-sight and your archetypal screamo band. Introspective, melodic songs with lots of pedals for a small band from Greensboro, NC. Really the best comparison is to Envy, but with less hardcore influence. Anyway, these guys are cool. Gave people this demo for free after the set and it sounds pretty good, although doesn't really do justice to their live sound. Song names might be on their myspace, if you remember that site. .../barrowband if I remember correctly - I just have these labelled "Demo 1" and "Demo 2". I believe they are going to try to tour next summer. If you have the slightest interest in this genre and don't ever find yourself whining, "Y iz ther not constant br34kdown!?!!eleven" (rough quote from band), go see them. They're good, and I know they'll appreciate it. Hell, even say you heard of them from a blog post from a kid at their Raleigh show, they might start thinking all this music stuff is worth it!
