Today we welcome Nathan Hardy from the band Microwave. Microwave just finished up a little run with Jimmy Eat World and The Hotelier and it was high time to get Nathan to chat.

Alternative Press – 10 Unsung Heroes of Emo That You NEED To Know

Bands like Fall Out Boy, Dashboard Confessional and Jimmy Eat World may take well-deserved residency on every proper Emo Spotify playlist, but the genre is full of artists who never got the mass recognition they deserve albeit having helped define, and constantly redefine, Emo. From Armor For Sleep and their ambitious 2005 concept record “What To Do When You Are Dead,” to both of Blair Shehan’s seminal rock outfits, Knapsack and The Jealous Sound, there’s an illustrious history of Emo music that is often overlooked and tragically underrated. This list…

100 Words Or Less: The Podcast – Jason Gleason from Further Seems Forever/Action Reaction

Episode 312 – FURTHER SEEMS FOREVER. I am happy to welcome my old friend, Jason Gleason on the show. He sang on the incredible FSF record, “How To Start A Fire” and was able to convince him to come on the show.

We discuss his upbringing in Minneapolis, his time in Further Seems Forever and public vs private life. I really dug this chat so, DIG…

I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with Chris as he’s previously been on the site with his other project Twin Forks, but finally having a one-on-one Dashboard Confessional interview with this absolute idol is a…
