They were fucking awful back in the statutory rape/joke —core band phase, and now they're just a fucking awful band trying to jump on the even worse "trendy, honest and deep hardcore" Hundredth/Being As An Ocean phase.

except Hundredth/Being As An Ocean are both terrible..

also Being as an Ocean buys their facebook and twitter followers. so they are just as fake as the scene-core shit bands.

you want honest hardcore listen to Have Heart and Verse..
I guess my post was confusing, but yeah, both those bands are just as bad as this. Didn't know they bought facebook fans but wouldn't surprise me. My friend from SD tells me they were in some generic deathcore band until early last year (2012), and they just hoped onto the defeater/brocore trend. All three bands bands come off as incredibly fake.

What exactly do you mean by statutory rape phase? I just got an email about this band and decided to post because they're from Canada and toured with Dead and Divine... I don't really know much about them, haha.
Basically, they've been around since 2006. For their first incarnation, they had around 70 different members because they'd all quit after a few months. Not an exageration. Their current singer is their only original member. Anyways, this singer was accused of sleepign with a 14 year old. May or may not have happened, but the rumour had legs. They eventually kicked out all the members, recruited new members, made the band all american, that band had another 20ish members of their own, eventually a canadian LR formed and both kinda toured at the same time and eventually this Liferuiner prevailed or something. Anyways, if you listen to any of their pre-2010 stuff, it's literally the opposite of everything this band (seemingly pretends to) stand for.

EDIT: They've also done more than one tour with Emmure. Not one to judge a band for growing up, but it comes off as hyper fake.

When I saw them at a show, the singer ran around the pit slapping people on the head. Fuck that dude.

Also, considering Ontario is fucking MASSIVE, I seriously doubt that claim.

did you honestly think over 120k people "liked" an unknown band that is less than a year old.

to put this in perspective
Touche Amore - 72k likes
La Dispute - 114k
Defeater - 81k
Title Fight - 73k

edit: also you can run pages and twitter accounts through sites that detect how many fake profiles are following/like them. BAAO was at 90% fake for twitter.. sad, so sad
No, no I believe you. I figured that they were just the type of band to add randoms on Facebook and get them to like their page (Crown the Empire did this, and actually added me on Facebook back in 2010 or 11 and begged me to like their page more than once).
