[i229.photobucket.com image 300x300]

Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever , yeah, kind of a long title, guys.


*googles*

The band has garnered popularity beyond the post-rock scene for their cinematic, elaborately developed guitar work, narratively styled instrumentals, what they refer to as "cathartic mini-symphonies,"

They're not trying to hard to avoid the "emo hipster" label.

If you don't enjoy, I'm sorry. I really really love it, though, and hope to share with others.
