A few weeks ago, while in Manchester, my band were lucky enough to play with Well Wisher (Thanks Rosie!). Well Wisher are a pretty new emo band, forming from the ashes of the great and short lived Hail Brethren. Well Wisher were great, but while watching them, deep in the back of my head I was thinking about how great Hail Brethren were. I know, cool story bro. Hail Brethren played a style of emo that's been said to sound like "Forever and Counting" era Hot Water Music. I guess that isn't too bad a comparison, if a lazy one at that. Unfortunately, Hail Brethren broke up not long after this record was released, a crying shame to those of us who never got to see them live. Download this record from the link below, which is hosted on the ROIDH website, so I figure it's ok for me to post it here too. Regardless, if you like the sound of this please do pick up a copy from the label! Dead cheap too! Oh, and be sure to buy the Well Wisher 7" when it eventually comes out too. I've heard it, and it's brilliant!
