The modern melodic hardcore scene is consistently flourishing, and every now and then we're exposed to bands that immediately stand out for offering something fresh, yet familiar. Poughkeepsie, NY's Meridian is a prime example, and being recently picked up by Victory Records serves as further evidence. The band is currently writing its new full-length record, […]
In case you've missed our previous coverage of Lawskof, this should catch your eye (and ears). Sonically, this melodic punk quintet brings '90s punk bands (think Lagwagon and Propaghandi) to mind, with a modern twist. Today, we're premiering the music video for a brand-new single, titled "Ohio City Is Killing Me", which is also up for download on Bandcamp. The band […]
Give And Take is a growing pop punk band that blends hardcore and emo elements and has the potential to reach the heights of other current acts.

Massachusetts isn't particularly known for its indie/emo scene, but Grandview has the potential to change that. The band's debut full-length, titled Everything Between Paint And A Wall, will be released on December 17th, and it'll quickly appeal to avid listeners of other current emo revival artists, such as Citizen. Today, we're premiering the first single, "In Good Company".
Back in April, Count To Four released its debut full-length, Between Two Cities, and today we're shining the spotlight on the band again with a video commentary for "You Got Your Woody Allen In My Gerard Butler".

Daisyhead, a new emo rock band from Nashville, has been receiving some well-deserved attention as of late. The four-piece has already dropped two outstanding singles, and today we're premiering the third, titled "Sun". The EP's sound, akin to Balance And Composure and Daylight, is sure to please fans that look for something more. Don't forget to pre-order the 7" here […]
Pentimento recently embarked on a lengthy tour with Real Friends, Mixtapes, and Forever Came Calling, which gave us a chance to sit down and record a couple of acoustic renditions in Minnesota, MN.

LA post-hardcore quintet Touché Amoré's third LP, Is Survived By, is a magnificent album of the year contender and a standout in the band's discography and across the scene. To support the release, the band recently kicked off their tour with AFI in Minneapolis, MN, where we caught up with frontman Jeremy Bolm and talked about his perspective on the band, his […]
Sincerity and a sense of social awareness are traits that many of us value and respect, and since both are quite distinct within Still Rings True, the band holds a special place in our local scene.
