So I'm effing with hardcore on a level now. Caught Thursday and Underoath on the weekend, bloody fantastic. Parkway Drive next week and Deftones with Dillinger Escape Plan in May. Win. Check out some of my favourite tunes below. Boss.

So y'all might have seen my City & Colour post recently. Dallas is the fucking man.
The band that brought him his fame, Alexisonfire, is my favourite band by far right now. I've heard them be described as emo, screamo, hard rock and hardcore. I have no idea, but there's some grinding guitars, guttural screams and Dallas' harmonics blending to make some amazing music.
Check my two fave joints; 'Young Cardinals' is the co-title track of their latest album 'Old Crows / Young Cardinals', while 'Boiled Frogs' is from their classic 'Crisis'. This shit is on repeat these days.
I'm ALL about this dude right now (pause). After being put onto City & Colour earlier this year, I'd been a casual fan. My interest grew after discovering that Canadian Dallas Green, who essentially is City & Colour (based off his name - Dallas, City. Green, Colour. Genius), is also the singer for hardcore group Alexisonfire.
I found that even though I'm currently in possession of more music than I can cope with, I kept going back to City & Colour; the warm, heartfelt and often dark songs just resonated with me. Then this weekend I learned a bunch of the songs on guitar and now I'm officially obsessed. I even ordered a tshirt from their website.
Anyway, check the videos for two of my favourite City & Colour songs. The first is 'Coming Home', from his debut 'Somtimes', and the second is 'Sleeping Sickness' from the 'Bring Me Your Love' album. Enjoy.
