Saw these guys live a couple years ago, signed to Distort.
Fans of Cancer Bats, Johnny Truant, Alexisonfire, Everytime I die should like them.
Anyone heard of/ and or like them?

they broke up a while ago. new bands include Barn Burner and Jubilations (latter is not active).

glad to see some respect for them, they've gotta be one of my favourite hardcore acts.

Nah they did a Uk tour supporting Architects a couple years back just before they broke up, it was Matt from Architects leaving show. I've been listening to Misstresses and Marriages every so often since and got hold of Great Lakes last week. Really impressed!

I'll check out the other 2 bands you mentioned now.

whaaaaat the hell are you talking about. not even southern rock, it's ****ing blues.

you can't even compare them to all these gay "southern metalcore" bands that are popping up now.

well for 1, Mistresses and Marriages sounds exactly like a mediocre pop band from where I live. Second, the only thing blues about it is the occasional southern sounding melody or solo. No 12 bar form, no real emotion. They sound JUST like every other ETID/Maylene rip off band that's popped up in the past 3 years.

I want to tab Shy Guys but it's hard to hear a lot of stuff.

This band was awesome by the way.
