Old Gray

Old Gray are a three-piece emo/screamo/post-hardcore band from New Hampshire that formed in April 2011. The lovely gents that comprise this wonderful group are Cam (vocals, guitar, bass), Raph (vocals, guitar, bass), and Charlie (vocals, drums), in addition to numerous other collaborators. Since their formation, they've been quite prolific and progressive. They started out as a noodle-y, Snowing-esque band with mild screamo tendencies and lots of gang-vocal sing-alongs, as heard on their demo. However that's the only thing they've done with that sound. On subsequent albums, they've expanded their sound by making the screamo/emo (not the "twinkly" kind or whatever you want to call it) aspect more prominent, especially in the vocals, dynamics, and, guitar parts. They also incorporate elements of post-rock and spoken word, making them all the more diverse. Their lyrics are also I don't know, they are just a REALLY good band, and easily one of my favourites currently around (I suppose I say that for a lot of bands, but it's particularly applicable in regards to Old Gray). So yeah, I highly suggest you check everything out if you haven't already, and do what you can to support them. You're welcome.
