This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I discovered the wonderful Breath Of An Epoch. The Illinois three piece deal mostly in extremely lo-fi, noodly emo that features quite distinct screamy vocals.

All of their music is 'name your price' on Bandcamp so there's no excuse to not check them out! Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight?
