Voted for Passenger because Let Her Go is a great song. Haylay Williams is much more talented than Jenna McDougall. They are both pretty though.

One day people are going to realize that Tonight Alive doesn't even sound like Paramore. -_-

Female vocalist =/= sounding like Paramore.

The singer sounds identical, though... Nobody thinks that having female vocalists makes bands sound like Paramore, but this band in particular sounds like Paramore.

They don't sound identical. She tries to pronounce things like Hayley and that's why people think they sound the same but lbr Hayley >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>> her.

And on top of that their songs are just bad.

They have completely different vocal ranges. Hayley has an incredibly unique voice. It's almost insulting to her to say that Jenna sounds identical to her.

Plus, their musicianship is entirely different. Paramore has the pop influence, Tonight Alive clearly takes some influence from metal.

Her voice does sound like Hayley, though. I never said anything about their vocal ranges. I'm not saying either band sounds the same, just to clarify.

I hope their tour with MOB/TSSF will get them more into the "pop-punk" scene so that people will stop lumping them in with Paramore constantly.

Somebody trying to support one of their favorite bands. How dare them!
Basically what I came in here to say since II figured there'd be some kind of unnecessary backlash.


Unrelated, but awesome avatar!

Was preparing to add to the insults for this band (I've never even heard of them) by watching their music video in the link you provided

...and I surprisingly didn't mind it. Not a bad band at all. Definitely can tell that she's trying to sound like Hayley, though. But seriously, just because Paramore is the only band that comes to mind in this "scene" doesn't mean that a female can't sing in this genre... If paramore and tonight alive were fronted by dudes, I doubt anyone would say anything haha
