Dashboard Confessional

A Mark A Mission A Brand A Scar

    Fourth album from emocore pioneers Dashboard Confessional. As expected, the album features Chris Carraba's distinctive emotive songwriting, but the overall sound is fuller and more dynamic than their previous releases.

    No Motiv


      A punk-pop quartet from Oxnard, CA, No Motiv specialize in the sort of personal introspection and emotional catharsis that defines the sub genre known as "emocore". This four track mini album is a taster for the album to be issued in September 2003. No Motiv have polished their sound into a steady buzz of melodically injected punk rock with the grinding heart splitting lyrics to match.

      Face To Face

      How To Ruin Everything

        "How To Ruin Everything" sees Face To Face reaffirm their status as one of the 1990s new-punk trailblazers who have often been cited by bands like Blink 182 and the Alkaline Trio as major influences. Trever Keith, Scott Shiflett and Pete Parada formed as a trio in 1991 with a passion for old skool punk rock and this direct, no nonsense approach is there to be heard on this 2002 punk epistle.

              Featuring ex-Pond front man Christopher Brady, Audio Learning Center are producing some excellent emocore stuff that has a classy sense of style with subtle dynamics, evolving songs and great vocals from Brady.

              Get Up Kids

              On A Wire

                The Get Up Kids are simply one of the best emocore outfits on the planet, they helped define the style and "On A Wire" is prepared to redefine the band again. It's mellow, even soppy at times but the emotion content is too high to ignore and they're not afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Fulsome vocal harmonies, subtle acoustic melodies, poppy basslines - the Get Up Kids have taken emo one step further from core.
