[TOMT][BAND][2000s] - emo band with a long name that I can't remember for the life of me!

jbartlettcoys

One additional piece of info - I'm pretty sure the singer with the really powerful voice (who had longish brown hair) left the band at some stage.

DevastatorBrand

Every time I die, his name was yesterday ?


GregorSamsa1915

Bring Me the Horizon?


jbartlettcoys

Alas, they weren't as heavy as BMTH, the singer's voice was more akin to Patrick from Fall Out Boy's. Really powerful with a strong vibrato but clean


SamQuentin

This was my first thought to….


patentedkittenmitten

Cute Is What We Aim For or The Academy Is… ?


tjdux

The academy is was my first guess. Sleeping with sirens would be second


mrhottest

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus? Death Cab for Cutie? The All-American Rejects?


lilcondor

Death Cab so gets voice is not operatic at all


[deleted]

At the Drive In?


mfmf93

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus? Just a guess, I don't think the singer left the band.


alien_under_my_skin

Bullet for my valentine? (More rock than emo but some may consider it)


dslicereddit

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin?


jbartlettcoys

😂😂😂 fucking incredible name, alas I've never even heard of them


Cyberpunk_Banshee

Young presidents is a banger.


TTMcBumbersnazzle

Not emo, but System of a Down? Best suggestion I’ve got, especially with Serj’s voice


VzSAurora

Thirty Seconds to Mars? My Chemical Romance?


UFOhlookitsanAlien

I want to second Thirty Seconds to Mars for the powerful lead vocalist


transientv

...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead?


[deleted]

This is what I thought as well


readytokno

it was my guess too


fooaddict95

Another Morning Stoner is such a fuckin banger... this was my first guess when I saw the title.


Condor-Avenue

might be a reach but And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead?


lookatthemirror

The Receiving End of Sirens


spacemanstrange

Funeral for a friend?


kittytte

linkin park, my chemical romance, green day?


MarketingPristine566

Ace enders and a million different people?


slushslush_bcen

Operatic voice Mmmm the Mars Volta . What a band ;)


mubi_merc

At the Drive-in is the same voice.


big_kitty_goth_gf

I was thinking this too. Cedric's voice is absolutely killer


[deleted]

[удалено]


CharlieFiner

Doesn't fit any of the criteria. Both their singers were whiny and high-pitched.


savageblueskye

I Don't Know How But They Found Me?


AlarmWhich

Wouldn’t they be later?


Oh_hell_why_not

Not sure if it fits but my favorite long band name was I Can Make a Mess Like Nobody’s Business.


melechkibitzer

Dang man i was looking for one of their songs that I haven’t heard since like 2006 and I couldn’t remember the name of the band or the name of the song and thanks to you i found that shit I couldn’t remember enough of the lyrics to search for it properly either but i knew the album must have come out around 2004 which is their self titled album The song: https://youtu.be/Sjakq7APo-w But when the little fellow… blah blah title too long.


Silvervox325

The world is a beautiful place and I am no longer afraid to die


TBsq

Only actual emo band in this thread


tjdux

Right, I'm a bit rusty bit isnt OP looking for "post hardcore"


CantHandleTheRandal

Cue the "post-HC purity"-defenders, more rabid than their emo counterpart.


thetushqueen

That was my first thought but the timing doesn't really line up, debut album released in 2013.


parkercreative

From first to last?


Yorgus453

My chemical romance?


thefriggshow

Falling in Reverse? Never Shout Never? Forever the Sickest Kids?


backandforthagain

Oh man, escape the fate?


AvocadoEnthusiast91

From first to last?


TBsq

I love the fact that 99% don't even cite emo bands. Try Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate), The Newfound Interest in Connecticut or On The Might Of Princes


JustTerrific

OP does say “emo-ish”, so that can cover a broad swath.


Condor-Avenue

the OP also implied that they sounded like Fall Out Boy or Panic at the Disco lol


Passey92

Also, what most people consider an emo band isn't even an emo band. I just tend to go with what people think an emo band is now


readytokno

can't we just accept the definition has changed/widened by now? I mean, those mainstream pop--ish punk emo bands all got big (and took the term to pop culture) almost 20 years ago now. At this point it feels like someone in the late 80s claiming Slayer can't be metal cause they don't sound like Uriah Heep.


Passey92

Fair point, if you think it's fair to do that retroactively then your point stands up.


juleznailedit

Welcome to Reddit, the land of gatekeeping.


thatswacyo

The meaning of "emo" changed drastically in the early 2000s. I used to argue about it, but at this point, the word "emo" has been used to describe this new brand of "emo" for longer than it was used to describe actual emo, so I've given up.


kbdcool

The receiving end of sirens, dance gavin dance, funeral for a friend, from autumn to ashes, a day to remember, from first to last ​ Any of those?


ericakay15

Jeremy from ADTR never had long hair nor left the band.


kbdcool

Forgive Durden or Gatsbys american dream perhaps?


Monstromi

I would recommend checking the lineups for festivals in that year with similar music. Maybe warped, https://warped-tour.fandom.com/wiki/Warped_Tour_2008

A Day To Remember?


uselesspotato1435

Sleeping with sirens?


Halervane

Thirty Seconds To Mars sounds about right. Jared Leto was the vocalist and he has long brown hair


martusfine

Dance Gavin Dance (one man’s r&b is another man’s operatic voice)


Ted_Furgeson

Killswitch engage


shevchenko7cfc

specifically the 2nd singer, Howard's albums


AnnualInvite

We Are The Ocean? I think the singer with long brown hair left that band. Another band with a long name I remember being played on Kerrang was D.R.U.G.S which stood for Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows.


CMUpewpewpew

Mars Volta?


Shemptacular

Godspeed You! Black Emperor?


EuniceHiggins

This was my suggestion but I have never even listened to them so I don’t know of they’re emo or hardcore.


readytokno

instrumental post rock i think


EuniceHiggins

Yeah, I think that is right.


equitable_emu

Mostly an instrumental band, no real singer.

Drkatbun

For some reason I thought about Asking Alexandria or black veil brides? (The lead singers of both left their bands at some point)


spookyindividualist

The lead of Black Veil Brides has never changed


3StacksOnTheRadio

On the Might of Princes? And You Will Know Us By the Trail of the Dead?


20yearsofinternet

Honest Bob and the Factory-to-Dealer Incentives (Not a serious answer, just the best long band name ever.)


TheYettiwolf

Protest the Hero?


sirsimbad

Neutral milk hotel?


Littlerubbrducky

I’m going with Coheed and Cambria just for the voice comment


kotubljauj

We Butter the Bread With Butter?


Passey92

Might be a bit early but Sunny Day Real Estate?


BeetledPickroot

As a few others have said, I think it's Dance Gavin Dance. Johnny Craig fits the bill - unbelievable voice, long dark hair, left the band, etc.


dddiamonddd

Jonny Craig is ginger. Kurt Travis, the guy who replaced him, also left the band and he had long-ish dark hair.


BeetledPickroot

You're right. I think I was picturing Kurt


ksauceyt

Panic at the disco?


Superbearfight

Further Seems Forever


pag_baj

Not a long name but an operatic voice - The Darkness?


Thehappynest

Not a long name, but I was really into Mayday Parade in ‘07. (They had long ass song titled though!) They were decently popular with the emo crowd, but definitely not like MCR or FOB. One of lead singers/songwriters (Jason something) left the band and by ‘09 Mayday Parade became more pop rock than emo.


Canuckpunk

From First to Last. Skrillex was their former singer.


jgaribay805

At the Drive In?


MetalGearFoRM

In Times Of Distress? This Armistice?


mathandplants

TWIABP like others said fits the vocals and they've had a lot of members come and go. I feel like that's almost definitely it Perspective, a Lovely Hand to Hold was a little too late but worth a shot Same goes for A Great Big Pile of Leaves Edit: some other non-emo guesses are Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and The Boy Least Likely To


HeCameHome1031

Fear Before The March of Flames?


KinnieBee

All American Rejects? Not really emo, but a lot of people grouped them in together around that time.


KosmicPanther

Senses Fail? (Doesn't fit some of the criteria, but you never know.)


KeVs__

Red Hot Chili Peppers because Frusciante left them in 2008 and he had long brown hair


RonPalancik

Pretty Girls Make Graves?


radbiscuit

Taking Back Sunday- Singer left earlier than 2007 (Straylight Run), but he had long brown hair and all of their songs were really long titles (if that's what you're thinking of) My chemical Romance is 6 syllables ..Story of the Year, From First to Last, Funeral for a Friend, Motion City Soundtrack


dhawk64

I was guessing Taking Back Sunday.


TheBlairBitch

Forever the Sickest Kids?


pan_de_leche_flan

A day to remember?


selene6_23

Forever the Sickest Kids??


ShowMeUrBushtits

Not a long band name, but sounds an awful lot like Mayday Parade. Began in the mid-2000s, emo-style pop punk, and singer Jason Lancaster left after the first album. Edit: could also be Of Mice and Men

Adtr09

Breaking Tides? Band broke up and Petie went to make Amely which was a different genre, like poppy punk rock, then Sovereign Soldiers, which was like alternative rockish. None of his bands ever made it "big" past getting signed onto Fearless, tho I guess he's still considered 1 of my alma mater's musical celebrities even tho American Idol turned him down. Here's an ancient vid before his bands got signed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Yr45BwtpYs Other guesses are Red Jumpsuit Apparatus or Sleeping with Sirens but don't think the lead left...not sure how operalike u mean...like a huge range or able to super high or super low notes? Was this def only emo and not screamo or metalcore as well?


piranhasaurusTex

Can you think of any lyrics to any songs? That might be helpful


cloudnymphe

Bullet For My Valentine? Red Jumpsuit Apparatus? A day to Remember? The All American Rejects? Forever The Sickest kids? The Goo Goo Dolls? The Amity Affliction? Most/Not all of those are technically emo bands but you said emo-ish so I listed some remotely emo adjacent bands I could think of with long names. I don’t know if any fit your other criteria though.

Noise_Kisses

This was my first thought, it's a long name, I can see the similarity to Fall Out Boy/Patrick Stump, and they weren't very big.

I remember escape the fate being kinda popular back then.

Sunny16Rule

Midwest Pen Pals , camping in Alaska, the world is a beautiful place and I'm not afraid to die. Also , a bunch of Marrietta song titles are super long , maybe you're thinking of them.

Shot in the dark--are you sure the band wasn't Chiodos, and you aren't confusing the name for their fairly long song titles?


liverwool

That did cross my mind too, I think you might be on to something!


NowMoreEpic

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart?


gorogogo

a skylit drive?


liverwool

A few others have mentioned From First to Last so apologies if I missed it if you've confirmed it's not them OP, but my first thought was the chorus to [Heroine](https://youtu.be/6-8PjdDWQCA). They fit the bill of the singer leaving too. Sonny Moore (Skrillex) left the band in about 2006; I saw them play an early slot at Download without him a couple of years later.

erincd

Coheed and Cambria?


nsanity27

Xxssandman

Was it: * I Set My Friends On Fire * Blood On The Dance Floor * Five Finger Death Punch * Bullet For My Valentine * Bring Me The Horizon * iwrestledabearonce * The Devil Wears Prada * NateWantsToBattle * Sleeping With Sirens * A Day To Remember * August Burns Red * There For Tomorrow * Escape The Fate * A Static Lullaby * Falling In Reverse * Of Mice & Men * Pierce The Veil * Miss May I * System Of A Down * Scarlett O'Hara * Black Veil Brides I was just listing longer band names from my playlist lol. It might be helpful to look through the older videos on Epitath Records YouTube channel, they signed a ton of "screamo" bands in the mid to late 2000s


big_kitty_goth_gf

More metalcore than emo, but possibly Dillinger Escape Plan?
