BATS – Gamma Ray Burst

Dublin, Ireland’s BATS make some of the finest post hardcore that can no longer be found in the U.S. Rejecting the tired and repeated ways of American post hardcore, the band are able to keep the music heavy, catchy, gritty, and danceable all at the same time. With half-screaming, half-singing vocals and science-oriented lyrics, BATS may be one of the only bands you’ll ever see nerds dance to. Check out their track “Gamma Ray Burst” off their album Red In Tooth and Claw below. Read More…

Moving Mountains – Cover the Roots, Lower the Stems

New York’s Moving Mountains have been described as one of the most emotion-provoking bands in the general rock scene right now. With elements of post-rock, pop-punk, indie rock, and post-hardcore, the band have been able to take “mainstream” rock to some pretty cool places. Their music has often been compared to that of The Appleseed Cast or Vheissu-era Thrice. Check out the song “Cover the Roots, Lower the Stems” off their debut album Pneuma below. Read More…

Hail the Sun – Testostyrannosaurus

A shining light in the dim world of post-hardcore, Hail the Sun makes us remember why we got into the genre in the first place. Like a cross between Circa Survive and The Fall of Troy, Hail the Sun make the kind of heavy, yet catchy tunes that Pitchfork wouldn’t dare even cover. Delicate guitar lines are pounded by the quick, pulsating rhythms until they shatter into a mess of off-kilter pop-punk-esque romps. Let’s just hope Hail the Sun marks the comeback of a once-great genre turned ridiculous. Check out the track “Testostyrannosaurus” off their 2012 EP Elephantitis below. Read More…
