I never went through a screamo phase, however there are bands who were lumped into said category that I enjoyed like Finch and Thursday as well as a few others. I was pleased when I came across a band recently called Gatherer who actually play an impressive, pleasing form of screamo in 2012.
I thought good screamo was long dead, but as it turns out, it’s just been hiding in New Jersey. Gatherer remind me of a mix between Touche Amore and Thursday, which is never a bad thing. These guys recently released a new music video for the track “Wedding Bells” which comes off of their new EP Postcards. The album is free to download on their Bandcamp page, but you can also download it from the widget below. Check out the new music video at the top of this post. What are your thoughts on Gatherer?
