These three guys from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, US have released one of the most excellent hardcore influenced screamo record of this year. We Were Skeletons combines the traditional mid-tempo screamo with sometimes melodic, sometimes thrashy (post-)hardcore and punk passages. There are a lot of highlights on this album, my personal favourite is the sixth track called 'Disease Artist'. I have to say, this is a great album with a lot of rad songs, I highly recommend to you. 'Blame & Aging' will be released on 12" by Topshelf Records, you can buy it on the link below.

We Were Skeletons is a band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania who formed in 2007. We Were Skeletons play an amazing style of music that incorporates elements of post hardcore, hardcore, and screamo within their sound. Blame & Aging is the band's latest thirteen song LP, which was released on October 22, 2012. Blame & Aging serves as the band's second full length LP and serves as a great follow-up to their last self titled LP released in 2008. Between these two full lengths, We Were Skeletons have done two splits 7" with Mnwa and The Saddest Landscape and a 3-way split LP with Florence & Libby and Kids. On their latest Lp, We Were Skeletons draw influence from bands such as Orchid, Four Hundred Years, Shotmaker, and early Engine Down. The band's trademark chaotic/emotive style is still present, but the chaos is dialed back a bit. I really like the band's progression since their last LP and think that their incresed complexity puts them at a similar caliber as bands such as Pianos Become The Teeth and The Saddest Landscape. This will probably be one of my favorite albums of the year.
