    the only Post-Hardcore band i enjoy from my days of being an edgy 12 year old kid is Alexisonfire cause they got me into the genre and Old Crows/Young Cardinals was the first CD i ever bought, ive pretty much grown tired of SKSK, Alesana, Blessthefall, A Skylit Drive and everything else Post-HC i jammed to at that age

    I don't enjoy newer bands that play 'that type' of phxc, but SKSK has been a favorite of mine since highschool and I'll always enjoy listening to them. They were a band that stood out to me back then and they still do when comparing them to newer bands that play 'that type' of phxc.
