Emergency Numbers

Emergency Numbers was a screamo/post-hardcore band that was formed in Miami, FL, December of '05. The band originally comprised of Alex Diaz (Guitar/Vox), Jose Guerrero (Guitar), Eric Rodriguez (Bass), and Kenny Cortina (Drums). The band made four songs together and played a few shows before members changed. In November of '07 the band went on hiatus, while Alex was playing in a side project called Currents and Eric played in a side project called Tony Rome (later known as Homestretch). Currents didn't play many shows and Eric left Jan '07. Emergency Numbers now comprised of 3 of the original members. Kenny left the band due to time discrepancies in March '07. Alex and Jose began to talk to Mario Fabregas (Currents - Drums) and Tommy Skandalis (Currents - Guitar) in possibly starting Emergency Numbers anew. They then formed in March '07 with Jose now on Bass and rewrote 2 original Emergency Numbers songs and 2 original Currents songs. They recorded a 6 song ep in May '07 that has yet to be mastered. The brand new Emergency Numbers disbanded in September '07. Currently, Alex is getting the ep mastered and ready for distribution. He is not playing in any bands in the moment, but is constantly writing. Jose, Eric, and Tommy are currently not in any bands at the moment. Kenny is currently playing drums for the Miami based pop punk band, Zack Attacks The World. And Mario is currently playing drums for the Miami based hardcore band, Tough Break.
There's a pretty good summary from their It's pretty heartfelt skram style stuff, definitely very similar to a lot of other mid 00s Florida bands. The lead singer kind of reminds me of the singer from I Wrote Haikus. This is just some 3 song demo thing that I found + some myspace rips, no idea on that 6 song demo mentioned in the summary. It's not totally awful, check it out.

Shoot Bang Dead

Active 2003-2004 and from Milwaukee, WI. I can't really get much information about them. It's kind of spazzy synth style stuff that I think kind of came before a lot of the scene core bands of the mid 00's. Not as totally lame as a lot of those bands though and still sounds like stuff posted on this blog. I have some collected songs here + songs that I ripped off their mypsace. They sound kinda similar to a lot of those Australian bands like Love Like Electrocution or something, check it if you're curious.

From Providence RI, and active... I'm not actually really sure. Early-mid 2000s I'm guessing. I really don't have much info on them, or on what they released. This is just a demo I had lying around, and some songs I ripped off their myspace. I also included some show posters I got off their myspace, I think maybe that dates them a little. They're pretty typical dramatic skram type stuff. Anybody have some info on them?

The Baldwin Mass Suicide

Bladwin Mass Suicide was somewhat of a hardcore band for a few years… It was mostly for fun… Ranging from two guitars, drums, violin, and keyboards, to three guitars bass and drums, the suicide has probably has about nine different members… Three of the members went on to play in Cease Upon the Capitol (Ryan, Matt and Roy)… Daniel moved to Knoxville… Josh still lives in Nashville… Ben does vocals for Party Cannon… I don't really know what happened to everyone else… But I'm sure they are all doing fine…

Active early 2002-2003 from Nashville TN, and being noteworthy for containing a few members of Cease Upon the Capitol. In terms of sound it's pretty typical for early 2000s, kind of has that cheesy metal core sound like a ton of other bands on this blog. It doesn't really hold up that well, but maybe some people would like to hear it.

Recovery Period

From their purevolume:
Members: Mitchell / David / Jared / Beth
Recovery Period began in 2003 as a three peice. Over the course of several years it saw a rotating door of members, expanding into a seven peice at one time. Social dynamics, historical politics and common tragedy is the main influence for where most of the song material comes from. Recovery Period has played all over the United States and released several D.I.Y. records. The band has always been a supporter of all ages shows, D.I.Y. forums and vehicle for honest music.
From Biloxi, MS, and active I'm thinking 2003-2008. You can check out their archived website which has lots of stuff to see here. I have most of what they released other than the "Injury to the Transition e.p" and maybe a split(?). As for sound, it's pretty typical stuff. Good though. I recommend a listen.
