TTNG (This Town Needs Guns)

TTNG (formerly This Town Needs Guns) are a three-piece math rock/indie/emo band from Oxford, England that got started in 2004. They're best known for their very technical and intricate style of playing that was heavily influenced by bands like Owls, Joan of Arc, and of course American Football. However, just like those bands, TTNG have a very melodic sensibility to them, which comes out in the very clean guitar tones and the softer vocals.

They've undergone a few changes in their time, most notably a few line-up changes in their early years, though they've been consistent with their current three-piece set-up for a few years now. There's also the name change, and the reason behind it is because the name This Town Needs Guns was initially meant to be ironic, since there weren't many guns where they came from. However, as they became more well-known internationally, the statement became less of an ironic joke and more of a deranged reality to some. Which is unfortunate, because the original name is kind of funny, but the reason behind the change makes complete sense. Regardless, this is a solid band that I know a lot of people have been waiting for, so here ya go. They also just released a new album, so check that out. Enjoy.
