Forever the Sickest Kids
Chipper emo scrubs from Dallas, Forever the Sickest Kids first appeared in 2007 with the online hit song "Hey Brittany." Following the stir made by the song, the band was promptly signed to Universal Motown and took its place among its peers on the Warped Tour. A five-song EP titled Television Off, Party On appeared later that year, and the full-length Underdog Alma Mater turned up in spring 2008. The six-piece band (singer Jonathan Cook, guitarists Marc Stewart and Caleb Turman, bass player Austin Bello, drummer Kyle Burns and keyboardist Kent Garrison)combines the catchy near-toasting vocal style of Barenaked Ladies with some pleasingly crunchy guitars and stagedive-worthy breaks.
