FILTER: ALL VIDEOS
This post-hardcore outfit from New Jersey got their start in the early 2000s as part of Drive-Thru Record’s vaunted roster of punk and emo bands, and later gained exposure as one of the main acts signed to the high-profile Vagrant Records. They played the main stage of the Warped Tour in ’05 and ’06, creating an even wider fanbase. Although the band’s original M.O. relied heavily on the existing screamo template, their sound has evolved into a more melodic and complex tangle of post-punk tropes, and their lyrics tend toward the esoteric, with pervasive references to Buddhism and other eastern philosophies.
