The Salad Bar for Punk, Emo, and Hardcore, with Hugo and Jim.
Ohio Death Metal going in on 2000s Emo? Seems like our kind of thing. We’ve got Ian of Hanging Fortress, Holy Coast, and Settle The Sky here to talk about the 2000s band ever, Further Seems Forever.
First in line is current events: The No Pressure/Enervate/Instill/Big Laugh/Pain Of Truth gig. Regulate/Jon Markson. Meka, Hu-Mid. Sunny Day Real Estate power outages. Furnace Fest: Dying Wish, Sick Of It All, Elliott, Poison The Well, and Strike Anywhere. Escuela Grind. High Vis. Glitterer.
Further Seems Forever navigated a chaotic series of lineup changes over the course of the early 2000s to churn out some really good records and some really solid tracks on the records that weren’t as complete. Their adjacency to the Christian Hardcore world gave them an exceptional opportunity to expose big audiences to their unique brand of luxuriously composed Emo-Indie crossover. Their records were backdrops for some of the finest work done by vocalists from some of the more disparate corners of Emo, and while they are very much a Bands’ Band, their music is held fondly in the hearts of true heads across the scene. Dive in!
