Yeah, I really dig their instrumentation, and I prefer when emo bands have vocalists who actually try to sing, rather than just off-key shouting.

I agree 100% with this. Even if the singer can't hit notes all that well (some Joie stuff, for example), sung vocals just sound so much better to me than yelling.

I always find it strange that I can't stand these so called "emo-revival" acts. Perhaps I'm just tired of feeling sad. No clue, but is the Fences s/t album considered part of this genre?

I saw Fences live once. Didn't strike me as emo at all, and they also put on one of worst live shows I've ever seen from a touring band. Totally turned me off from wanting to check out their record.

Their s/t was depressing as f- yet oddly upbeat at times. Never really thought about seeing them live, as I got tired on over excitement leading to utter disappointment at shows. Sorry about your bad experience...

I didn't really see them on purpose, since they were opening for Against Me!, but I think the fact that had zero expectations for them made the fact that their show was bad stand out even more. Like, I think I go into shows where I'm seeing new bands with a pretty open mind, and it's fairly hard to disappoint me so thoroughly with a first impression, but they definitely found a way to.

hah, i think it's actually kind of funny. those guys have a strange sense of humor.

also, anyone who's saying My Heart to Joy is just "okay".... uhhhhhh. i would've loved to hear what was coming after "Reasons to Be"

They played my friend's basement three-ish years ago (with La Dispute, Hostage Calm, and a plethora of other great bands), and I didn't go because of homework or something. I regret it to this day.

I won the record giveaway contest they were running on their Facebook, so I should be receiving both full-lengths and Summer Months on vinyl this week.

love the instruments on "american football" don't like the vocals or melodies.
does anyone have anything similar?

If you don't like the melody on "Never Meant" then I don't know if I can't help you, haha.

But really, check out Everyone Everywhere.
