11 of 15 thought this review was well written

Gas Up Yr Hearse!! is everything that's good about screamo that "wave" kids forgot about. It's fast and chaotic, there's blast beats and the songs are short. It's not your friend asking to do poetry readings in between sets at the local vegan edge basement spot - smoke outside but walke 20 feet from the door.

They're a nifty little emoviolence act from Illinois with a male vocalist and a female vocalist who's as shrill as that chubby ginger dude from The Number 12 Looks Like You. I'm real into female fronted hardcore bands, but I'm not really sure if I'm allowed to be considering as a rule female hardcore vocalists are feminazis trying to oppress my masculinity, while I in turn watch porno (I want to debate the morality of this issue plz respond). Anyhow, it's 2013 and here's like, really good emo violence out of nowhere. Not that melodic, forced, melancholy generic nu-skramz gibberish. The nearest GUYH!! gets to the wave is during moments where they sound how you'd expect a French band to sound ten years ago, but what's awesome is they're American, so they're not a bunch of pretentious dandies and cowards... they even have moments reminiscent of ye olde Funeral Diner.

Support your local music scene because local bands tour and stuff and I'm p sure skramz bands are local legend status at best. Sorry for reality check, c u at Warped Tour nobody in "real screamo".

These guys are great, really funny and I'm hoping to review the coma regalia split they did soon.

So glad they (and also the more chaotic/fraught end of the screamo) spectrum are garnering some attention. Fed up of this boutique reverb pedal vs. shouted quotes from Kerouac slipped between remedial prose that passes for screamo these days.

I like a lot of reverby screamo bands to be honest, but I want less shitty interpretations of it and more fuck yes.

I like it to a point but I definitely feel that beyond something truly exceptional coming out we have seen the best of that particular iteration of screamo for the next little while.

Oh I guess "A Banner Year For The Sum Of Our Losses" is the rerecording of this demo and that's why this isn't on the bandcamp.
