Modern Life Is War
Modern Life Is War (from Marshalltown, Iowa) were one of the most popular bands in the 2000's hardcore scene, formed in 2002. Alongside bands like American Nightmare they had successfully transcended genre boundaries to be admired and respected by a variety of fans. They were often noted for their passion, energy and impressive live shows. After they announced their split in early 2008, they got back together early in 2013
Kill Your Idols
Kill Your Idols took its name from a Situated Chaos song of the same name. Situated Chaos was a Long Island hardcore band that existed in the late 1980s. Founding members Andy West and Gary Bennett chose the name because the lyrics of the song reflected how they felt about hardcore. Also, Andy and Gary were introduced to one another and asked about forming an old-school hardcore band by a mutual friend named Vinnie Segerra, who was the frontman of Situated Chaos. Segerra also ran a DIY ("Do it yourself") label called Mint-Tone Records, which released a 7" EP by Gary's first band Big Sniff, which was also melodic hardcore.
