I know that a lot of people on this fourm probably hate this band but I think they were pretty good. Their last album Old Crows/Young Cardinals was really good for a radio-rock band. I can't say I'm surprised. City & Colour blow and I can see Dallas making a lot more money touring with them.

Aw man, this sucks! They weren't bad by any means. And they were my best friend's favorite band; he's gonna be bummed to hear that.

I am bummed about this, I never got to see them live. City and Colour are playing here in October though, so that's something.

It is sad for me. Easily the best band in their genre IMO. :eyes:

Wait... it totally was in Misinformation and Propaganda! Why did it get moved? Come on, post-hardcore is closer to metal than stuff like Rush, yet that gets to stay in Misinformation. Double standard here. :hmm:

Seriously:

>Alice Cooper stays in Misinformation.
>Alice in Chains stays in Misinformation.
>Odd Future stays in Misinformation.
>ZZ Top stays in Misinformation.
>Red Hot Chili Peppers stays in Misinformation.
>Primus stays in Misinformation.
>Hank III stays in Misinformation.
>Jane's Addiction stays in Misinformation.

Can a mod respond to this post and explain to me why this thread needs to be moved? I am legitimately confused, and a little offended.

I just feel like there might be some music-ism toasted post hardcore here. :eyes:

This one actually should be there. Alice in Chains has a lot of metal influences.

I posted it in General Chat and it's stayed in General Chat, what are you all talking about?

I was expecting people to be pissed that I started a thread about a screamo band, not that it got posted in the wrong place.

Oh shit, my bad! :lol: I could have sworn it was in Misinformation.

Anyway, Alexisisonfire is "hard" enough to post it there, as you see from what's been there in the past. Don't be afraid to put it there.

Eh, nobody should be pissed. Technically this is where it should be posted.

:D I mean, it should be in news... so yeah...

Hey, there are some great screamo bands out there. The genre isn't bad by any means.

If you can post fucking Hank III, you can post Alexisonfire. Technically, it should be in news.

(this argument is actually pretty pointless)

"Metal Propaganda At Its Finest..."

If it was me running the board, everything that wasn't metal or at least metal influenced would be moved here, but I don't have that job, so why bother getting mad about it? Either way we are still allowed to discuss whatever we want, so I don't understand why everybody gets riled up about these inconsistencies.

EDIT: Also, if you want good screamo, listen to Orchid. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtKxRRjb_Zg

What the fuck are you people going on about?

Some band that the majority of this board doesn't care about broke up. wah.

ALSO! Who cares where it was posted? wah.

In the end, the genre they were in lost another band and we can all rejoice. :party:

Never loved them but never had a problem with them, a bummer to see them go. Damian Abraham from Fucked Up had a nice tweet today summing it up, I think: "I am legit bummed that our friends Alexisonfire are calling it a day. They did a lot to open doors for us "aggressive" bands in Canada."

Indeed. It's not hard to tell what's metal and what's not. People on metal message boards in general think that when you tell them the band they like isn't metal, it means you think the band isn't good when all it means is that the band just isn't metal. Just because you have to post it in General doesn't mean it's shit.

Screamo is not a metal genre and it never will be. Screamo fucking sucks.

As soon as Dallas Green started doing City and Colour, Alexisonfire was done.

Ahem... And I quote, "Some band that the majority of this board doesn't care about broke up. wah." If you are going to quote me, make sure you actually quote what I say, and not what you want me to say. ;)
