Welcome Home

From NJ, active late 2000's. This is the band that came after Remember Van Gogh. It's pretty decent maybe a bit on the post-hardcore side of things. Sounds quite similar to Remember Van Gogh; reminds me kind of Daniel Striped Tiger or something. I'm not entirely sure what all they've released, I think this is it though. I also don't think they have any connection to this other band called Welcome Home that is active right now.

Overcast EP

In Constant Motion

Information taken directly from Last.FM:
In Constant Motion was a short lived post-hardcore band influenced by the likes of Saetia, Piebald, The State Secedes, Off Minor, Portrait, Orchid and the Record Label “Level Plane.” The EP was recorded in July of 2001 and self-released with hand-made artwork. A couple thousand copies were sold at shows, online and at local record shops before the band broke up. In Constant Motion was also on a compilation with the band Thrice called “We Will Answer Questions With Questions” and a short home-made music video was featured on several online underground music sites, which have since disappeared. After Phil, the drummer, left the band he was replaced by C.J. for a short period of time. Some new songs were written and some new ideas formed but they were never recorded. Drama within the band led to a quick split after things started to go down hill. Even with some record label interest and several high-profile shows booked, there was no saving the musical project.
Sounds definitely like a ton of other bands. I'm not entirely sure where they are from, maybe Vermont. There appears to be some unreleased stuff, but I think this it for actual real recordings. Check it out if you're curious.
