Underoath

Underoath formed in 1998 in Dallas Taylor's (vocalist at the time) bedroom in Tampa, Florida. The band was signed to Takehold Records in 1999 and that year released their debut, Act of Depression. This album was followed a year later by the five-song, forty-minute Cries of the Past; both albums are currently out of print. The band's line-up during this time changed frequently and bore little resemblance to the current band.

Alesana

The crowd is still screaming at a sold out show in Anaheim, California as the sweetcore phenomenon known as Alesana exits the stage. "I don't think I’ll ever get used to this," says frontman Dennis Lee as he tips back the last swallow of his water bottle. "Seeing kids go crazy like that thousands of miles away from home reminds me that I have the best job in the world. Oh, and that wearing cowboy boots on stage probably isn't the best idea in the world...but it simply must be done.

Scholars

1. Sam Nicholls (formerly of aptly-monikered local heroes Aboycalledhero) and Tom Woodstock joined (sometime Tellison stand-in drummer) Mike Frost and Chris Aylett to form SCHOLARS, a rock band with ambition, ideas and a strong sense of purpose. SCHOLARS play what comes naturally to them – melodic rock with a healthy dose of energy and passion. Combining pop sensibilities and anthemic choruses with creative instrumental arrangements and thoughtful lyrics, the band have created a blend of alt-rock, indie and emo which is heartfelt and free from pretension.
