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.

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 just thought that you would have wanted to know that you were 100% wrong about the terms you were using, but I guess I was wrong

I don't know man, you were saying that Brand New and Saosin were first wave emo... I feel like you said you were sarcastic but you're actually just a fucking idiot? You don't have to be shy dude, its the internet. There are plenty of people just like you here.

no no I just know what I'm talking about I'm pretty sure
but keep on incorrectly describing basic tenets of a large genre, proud ignorance is cool too

Does anyone know some typical alternate tunings used by these twinkle (really hate that description) bands are? I don't have much experience with that and usually shy away from anything that requires me to change the setup of my guitar, but I'm really curious.

I know a lot of "punk"ier emo bands use drop D, Snowing etc. Grown Ups tunes down a half-step (and probably LOTS of other more recent emo bands do this). The more complicated, mathy, Kinsella-y stuff often uses crazy tunings the likes of which I can't tell you and/or use haha. Sorry if thats not much, thats all I really know.

Agree with most of the posts in the thread. I would put Seasons in Verse pretty high on my list along with Snowing.
