The Movielife

Guest post by Jacob Shumaker, thanks a bunch to him.

The Movielife were a five-piece pop punk/melodic hardcore band from Long Island New York. They are one of my favorite bands and one of (in my opinion) the most underrated pop punk bands to this day. They formed in 1997 and were active until suddenly breaking up in 2003. The band was around such a short time but went on to influence many bands such as Bayside, Brand New, Set Your Goals and Crime in Stereo. So in some form essentially all bands currently playing pop punk. They played a form of fast melodic punk that the Long Island scene was known for and were originally signed to Fadeaway records before moving onto Revelation on their way up to Drive-Thru Records. After disbanding vocalist Vinnie Caruana went on to form I Am The Avalanche and guitarist Brandon Reilly formed Nightmare of You.
