In fear and faith vocalist (screamer) quits?

Ok I'm really late on this but wow, Cody quit?

There I was just on the page and I notice a guy talking about how he quit and what he said. So I did a quick google search and apparently this is what he said on his Facebook:

"I have left In Fear And Faith. I will not tell you why because its none of your business. Nice meeting you all. Buy whatever CD they come out with next. Scott has a better voice than any of these other shitty bands out there. If you live in SD lets hang out. Please don't talk shit cause its a pain to go to your home page and delete you. GO CHARGERS."

Hmm as much as I like the band I really don't like this guys attitude. He was a talented screamer but after seeing this and his behaviour at concerts... maybe this is for the best.

What is Post Hardcore?

Often a confused genre, especially to those who are new to it.

IN MY OPINION, your typical post hardcore song has "screamed" verses, clean vocal choruses with the occasional breakdown. The guitar in the song is sometimes "punky", sometimes really heavy, sometimes in between; depending on the band.

There are lots of different types of post hardcore bands though, bands like Emarosa, Saosin, Thursday are usually considered "post hardcore" despite not/barely having screams in their songs.

Alternatively, some bands have songs with alot more deeper, crazier i guess you can say; screaming with some really heavy guitar... while still being considered post hardcore.

Also, post hardcore bands tend to have singers with really high voices. I guess thats one of the deciders. for example, The Devil Wears Prada is considered post hardcore, but if you took away their singing... I don't think I would consider them post hardcore, or not really for that matter.

Well its a very open genre I guess you can say. Some people will agree or disagree with this post, thats definitely understandable considering there are so many factors contributing to whether or not a band is post hardcore.

tl;dr: I think post hardcore bands have high voiced clean vocals, screamed verses/choruses and punky/heavy instrument sounds

So, what do you think about this? What do you think makes a band post hardcore or not?

Thanks for reading. =]

Yashin - Somewhat unknown yet awesome band

Yashin is a post hardcore band from Scotland, even though they are unsigned at the moment; they are one of the most popular bands to come out of Glascow, Scotland. They're quite unknown even though they are a great band and i found out about them through Last.Fm

Heres one of my favourites from them as well as their debut video =]

Secret And Whisper. A horribly under rated band in my opinion.

Hey guys.

Secret and Whisper is a band that doesn't have much screaming despite being labelled as "post hardcore".

They are somewhat similar to Emarosa, Saosin, Circa Survive and Thursday. So if thats your preference then check these guys out!

^ One of my favourite songs from them. Great White Whale is an awesome album!
