Birds In Row

Birds In Row are a three-piece hardcore/screamo-tinged band from Laval, France. They've been around since 2009. They're an amazing band, fucking passionate, dynamic, melodic, abrasive, crushing, visceral, what have you. I don't know what I'm saying, this is from their, and it sums them up much better:

"Too straight forward and too filthy to get back to the so-called hardcore fanbase that bloomed on Modern Life Is War’s grave, too kind to belong to the crust/sludge scene, the three hardworkers from BIRDS IN ROW seem to avoid their city as much as labels.Then you can still wonder where do they take place between Modern Life Is War, Kylesa or Cursed. The first ones for the guts unpacking and their heartbreaking spleen, the second for their punk roughness and their abilities to enlight dirt and the last ones for the urging adrenalin discharges.But it is certainly not that. It is hardcore as it is supposed to be played. Period. With passion, deprived of any splendor and made so they can go stuff some asphalt half of the year.And yet, according to the 3000 miles they’re dealing with in a twelve months time, if you haven’t seen them less than 20 miles from your home, it can only mean two things : you have no friends, or no taste at all. And if there’s not much we can do about the first reason, we can sure work on the other one."

So, yeah, here's their discography to date. Two kickass EP's, which are included on the Collection compilation in addition to one other song ("Phoenix"), and an amazing full-length, You, Me, & The Violence. You're welcome:
