Funeral Diner

Funeral Diner were a a legendary screamo band from Half Moon Bay, California that existed from 1998-2007. These guys were incredibly active during their time as a band, with constant releases being put out on and an endless touring schedule. They've also proven to be one of the most influential bands in their genre. They're one of the few bands that really manage to embody every aspect of screamo in their music. They can be chaotic, melodic, emotionally passionate and intense, dark, crushing, dynamic, and hinted at post-rock influences to create songs of epic proportion. The band included former members of Portraits Of Past and Takura among others, and featured members that would later go on to be a part of ...Who Calls So Loud, Stirling Says, Lemonade, and others. In my opinion, they are probably a first-tier essential screamo band, along with Orchid, Saetia, pg.99, etc., so definitely be sure to get into Funeral Diner if you haven't already. Enjoy.
