Just found out today that they REUNITED TWO WEEKS AGO!!! They broke up in 2006, very shortly after the release of their only full-length album “Phantoms.”. They just announced a reunion, on January 26th, 2015. Fucking awesome.
My good friend Patrick got me into these guys years ago… we were talking about Jimmy Eat World and he said “yeah, they’re kinda like them, you might dig ’em.” I immediately loved this record.
They formed in Seattle in the late 90s… got signed to a major label in 2005, and shortly after, “Phantoms” was released.
Their music is insanely melodic, well-produced (EXTREMELY)… the drums sound so damn powerful (all bands that have drummers that play Truth Drums have perfect production… I don’t know what it is, but god DAMN do I love the sound of Truth Drums)…. anyway… the vocals are pristine, clear, and pure… I love bands with singers who just NAIL it in every possible way.
Without further babbling/bullshit… ENJOY, my friends.
