Lostprophets

Genre: Alternative Rock

Top tracks according to their Last.FM:

1. Last Train Home
2. Rooftops (A Liberation Broadcast)
3. We Bring An Arsenal

I had no idea these guys were still around, but I guess they're still trying to mount a comeback after their brief experience with semi-stardom about 12 years ago. I guess for a dumb alternative rock band that waffles somewhere in between current Papa Roach and My Chemical Romance, Lostprophets isn't horrendous. But you could do a lot better.

Rating: 5/10

Dates playing: July 12th - Aug 5th.

Make Do And Mend

Genre: Post-Hardcore, Melodic Hardcore, Punk

Top tracks according to their Last.FM:

1. Unknowingly Strong
2. Ghostal
3. Transparent Seas

These guys get thrown around a lot when discussing bands like Thursday, Touche Amore, etc. And I can definitely see it, but I'd say their music is a bit more catchy. Thursday with more melody is how I'd describe them. Not too shabby!

Rating: 7.5/10

Dates playing: All dates.

Man Overboard

MANKY'S SEAL OF APPROVAL

Genre: Pop Punk, Melodic Hardcore

Top tracks according to their Last.FM:

1. Montrose
2. Fantasy Girl
3. Dead End Dreams

I think these guys do the "current" pop-punk sound about as good as anyone else. Yes, the lyrics are very, very sappy and lame, but everything else is just great. They really know how to write some songs that get stuck in your head. DEFEND POP PUNK!

Rating: 9.5/10

Dates playing: All dates.

no secret. who doesn't like bands like Thursday, Refused, Fugazi, etc.?

Oh, you probably mean the bastardization of the tag that gets thrown around everywhere, just like "emo" and "screamo" and "metalcore"

Mayday Parade

Genre: Pop Punk, Power Pop

Top tracks according to their Last.FM:

1. Miserable At Best
2. When I Get Home, You're So Dead
3. Kids In Love

This band sounds almost exactly like a carbon copy of All Time Low to me. I guess there are times when it's a bit more pop-punky than ATL, but the cheese and sugar sweet factor is still very high. I bet your girlfriend likes this band.

Rating: 5/10

Dates playing: All dates. They might be a headliner.
