      Motion City Soundtrack

      Genre: Alternative Similar to: Taking Back Sunday, Jimmy Eat World, We the Kings, Metro Station Motion City Soundtrack is an American rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota, formed in 1997. The band consists of founding members Justin Pierre (lead vocals and guitar) and Joshua Cain (lead guitar), along with keyboardist Jesse Johnson, bassist Matthew Taylor, and drummer, percussionist Claudio River. Motion City Soundtrack has released five studio albums and sold almost 600,000 records throughout their career, including over half a million in the United States alone. Their first album I Am the Movie was released in the summer of 2003, and they soon joined Blink-182 on tour throughout Japan and Europe. Two years later their album Commit This to Memory was released and had an increasingly pop-heavy sound. Their next album Even If It Kills me became the band’s highest-charting album to date. Motion City Soundtrack then signed with Columbia Records and recorded My Dinosaur Life in June 2009. Their fifth and newest album Go was released in 2012 on Epitaph.


      Genre: Alternative Similar to: The Starting Line, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday Bayside formed in the winter of 2000 and developed a quick following with their melodic, moody, guitar-driven emo. They have toured across the United States with bands like the Alkaline Trio, and Taking Back Sunday. The lead singer/rhythm guitarist and founding member Anthony Raneri has been waiting 10 years—since he formed the rock group in Queens, N.Y.—to make an album like Killing Time, which represents a number of firsts for the band named after his hometown. The album is the band's debut for new label Wind-up Records after four releases on Chicago-based indie Victory Records, including Sirens and Condolences (2004), Bayside (2005), The Walking Wounded (2007) and Shudder (2008), steadily growing their following through tireless touring. Recording their latest at Dreamland Studios in Woodstock, N.Y., and Water Music in Hoboken, N.J., with renowned producer Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Counting Crows, Pixies, Jimmy Eat World), Bayside finally had the time and resources to fulfill their creative vision.
