10 Years Later: The Sound Of Animals Fighting’s ‘Lover, The Lord Has Left Us…’

“Lover, the lord has left us,” answered Charlemagne, though he wasn’t sure if Penelope could hear him, “if ever the lord was here.” – “Charlemagne & Penelope” by Chris Haynie We all have that band or artist which opened our eyes to the broader spectrum of what music is capable of being. From getting a […]

letlive. share second new single, “Reluctantly Dead”

“You can tell me that they came here to protect you. But I would rather run, because now the law results in my death.” Someone recently asked, “Where are all the revolution songs?” In an age filled with bipartisanship and political rage, many musicians seem reluctant to touch on the subject aside from a casual […]

REVIEW: We grieve with Greaver on immense full-length, ‘The Faun’

Artist: Greaver Album: The Faun Genre: Post-Hardcore Label: Cardigan Records At one point in our lives, we all love someone or something. And at another point we all lose that someone or something. This is the circle of life. As Mr. Vonnegut so aptly put it, “and so it goes…” Music has the power to […]

Vinnie Caruana

Vinnie Caruana emotionally strips down with “Survivor’s Guilt”

I Am The Avalanche/The Movielife frontman Vinnie Caruana has released the title track, “Survivor’s Guilt,” off his upcoming first solo LP, out May 27 via Equal Visions/Big Scary Monsters. The song is a contrast to the faster-paced tracks we’re used to hearing from both his bands as it’s just Caruana and an acoustic guitar. In […]


The Fall Of Troy return to form with video for new single, “Inside Out”

We can probably all recall the circumstances that got us into The Fall Of Troy. For me, it was when I was 16 years old and a friend recommended their song “Ghostship Pt IV” when I asked for more challenging songs to learn on guitar. Needless to say, it kept me quite busy. Now, I’m […]

1ST VOWS surprise fans by playing Envy On The Coast tracks during encore set

It’s not exactly a reunion, nor are there definite plans for Long Island post-hardcore five-piece Envy On The Coast to reunite for the time being; however, two former members who have since formed 1ST VOWS gave fans a treat during their encore set in New York City earlier this week by performing EOTC tracks “The […]


letlive. share new track, “Good Mourning, America”

letlive. have always given off an air of “urban underground.” Something about their music just screams city streets and making the best of rough situations. In their new track—the first off their upcoming full-length, If I’m The Devil (due out on June 10 through Epitaph Records)—they portray much less of a frantic feel than their […]

Introducing your new favorite post-hardcore band: Sideshow Cinema

The state of post-hardcore seems to be, thankfully, ever fluctuating. As a sub-genre, it is incredibly diverse, containing borderline metalcore acts (The Word Alive, Of Mice & Men) and proggy noodlers (Dance Gavin Dance, Hail The Sun) alike. It makes one wonder what truly defines any genre, let alone this one. There could probably be […]

rome hero foxes

Rome Hero Foxes breathe new life into late-aughts post-hardcore with second LP

Mid-to-late 2000s post-hardcore is alive and well in 2016 and we have zero complaints, as long as it’s good of course. Luckily, when it comes to the work of Texas four-piece Rome Hero Foxes, it’s really damn good. Pleasingly reminiscent of genre favorites Saosin, HRVRD, Tides Of Man, PMtoday and newer acts in the vein […]
