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.
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.
Today we're featuring the post-hardcore band Giver from San Jose, CA. Sam Pura at Panda Studios manned the boards for the band's new release, so can you ever go wrong when he's involved? Citing influences as Norma Jean, Botch, and Converge, listen to the track "12" in the replies and you can grab a few songs for free on Bandcamp.
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.

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.

Something To Write Home About, to be precise.
