There are a ton of great bands in this scene that fall under this sort of category. I thought it would be cool to have a thread where we can talk about those band but also new and upcoming bands that are like them. I'll make a small list and see where that leaves us. Bands Brand New Manchester Orchestra Thrice All Get Out Microwave Black Foxxes Mewithoutyou Kevin Devine and the God Damn Band (sort of, he gets mixed in with all of these bands) Gates Ourfathers O'Brother I'm missing a lot too but thats sort of why I wanted to start this thread so we can talk about this style of rock. I love when a song goes from super quiet to crazy insane loud! And these bands do it well! anyway we will see if this thread takes off.
