brb making an Anthony Green mask out of this cover and renting DVDs in his name but never returning them because #yolo
The best definition of ‘post-hardcore’ that I’ve been able to come up with is “bands who try to sound like Anthony Green-era SAOSIN,” and if you’ve ever seen CIRCA SURVIVE you know why so many kids are on his dick: he is one of the most charismatic dudes you’ll ever meet. But the best thing about Anthony (or as I like to call him Ant$) is that he is a very friendly, fun, and genuinely good dude- basically the exact opposite of the douchelords who sing for other scene-famous bands. And unlike most ‘post-hardcore’ bands, Circa actually have roots in hardcore: Ant$ came up in Philly hardcore, and Brendan was in a bunch of DIY hardcore bands in addition to (as I recall) writing most of the UNTIL THE END album right before he joined Circa.
In the background of this podcast you can hear Brendan doing some guitar tracks for their new album. After we hung up with Ant$, Twostacks asked me “What was that like sitar yoga music in the background?” I replied, “That’s what his band sounds like.”
I’m learning that podcasts are definitely better with a cohost, so I talked DJ TWOSTACKS into joining me- for anyone who is new to SYWH, Twostacks is best known as the producer of Kreayshawn “Gucci Gucci,” but is also a tri-state hardcore kid and generally awesome dude. Twostacks, Ant$ and I have all seen our share of tough times, so we did our own version of Loveline and answered some of the life advice questions you guys sent in. Srs, I thought it was really cool and definitely plan on using this format again!
