Los Angeles, CA-based Slow Collapse are set to release their debut EP City Of Thieves on Oct. 4th and today we're premiering the song "Caverns," which you can check out in the replies. Citing influences of Title Fight and Seahaven, the band takes aim at the popular post-hardcore genre that has quickly risen to prominence in the scene.
Christian Wagner on 09/19/13 - 12:46 PM
Chicago, IL's Yes Or No released their EP This State last week, and to me, it sounds like a mixture of a recent Chris Conley track written by a young pop-rock band. Listen to "Twenty Days" in the replies.

Although VERY young in age, Sudden Suspension have a bright future ahead of them. Taking cues from modern pop-punk bands like Real Friends, The Wonder Years, and more, these young kids from Chicago can certainly carve a niche for themselves. Listen to "Fields and Fences" in the replies and check out their Bandcamp.

I recently wrote an article about the joy of emo music, my passion for The Get Up Kids' Something To Write Home About and a few sentimental things about believing in your dreams and whatnot. Have a read of it here.
That's only present in you because you're 14 years old. For some people, 14 is the age that they retreat in to their basements for the rest of their lives to make an existence out of Mountain Dew and 4Chan. For others, 14 means finding new bands and discovering the beautiful world of the genres that Billboard doesn't cover. For me, 14 meant discovering The Get Up Kids. Something To Write Home About, to be precise.
