Kudos to the guy who was just looking for some Kidcrash, because I was legitimately shocked to find that they're not on here yet. Besides being one of the first modern post-hardcore bands I heard, they're still a favourite, and arguably one of the best. They got started in 2000 in Sante Fe, New Mexico, though didn't develop the sound they're known for until around 2004. I believe they are now/were based out of the Oregon/Washington area. As for their current activity, I'm not entirely sure what's going on. They were supposed to put out a new album two years ago or so, but am not sure what became of it, besides the fact that it's yet to be released.

Kidcrash (sometimes referred to as "The Kidcrash") play a very progressive, math rock-esque style of post-hardcore, with elements of post-rock and screamo thrown in. They come off as both intense and intriguing, with some incredible displays of musicianship in addition to their raw assault. I don't know how many damn times I listened to Jokes and Snacks a few years back, but they never get tiresome. Kidcrash have also been a major influence on a lot of post-hardcore bands that are kicking around now, and I'm sure you can hear the similarities in countless bands today. Even if you're a fan of older bands, like Daitro, City Of Caterpillar, Kill Sadie, Unwound, etc., you could definitely get into Kidcrash as well. To sum it up, if you want some intense, experimental post-hardcore, no band does it better than Kidcrash. Enjoy.
