Lizards Have Personalities

Lizards Have Personalities were a three-piece post-hardcore/screamo band from Lawrence, Kansas that formed in 2009 and broke up in 2014. This band was really in a league of its own when it came to amazing modern screamo bands. These three dudes are insanely talented, and seamlessly blend together to create this complex and chaotic, yet simultaneously melodic sound. The vocals are harshly sung, constantly on a breaking point, with some incredible guitar work and a tight rhythm section to back them. They wind through each song with such vigor and intensity, whether it's a more melodic breather, a post-rock inspired bit, or an all-out skramz fest. Lizards Have Personalities are definitely on my recommended list of "newer" screamo bands, and it's a shame I've only gotten around to sharing them now, years after their end. Their guitarist/vocalist is also in/is Emo Side Project, which is an acoustic-based emo side project that I definitely also recommend checking out. Enjoy.
