Ten Best Screamo Bands From Florida

4. Early Grace (Tampa)
That's right, from here on out, it's all minor chords, handclaps, and rolling around on the ground crying.

Early Grace was the product of the same Tampa hardcore scene as Reversal of Man. Its seven-song ten-inch, And All I Run Into Are Walls You Have Built, is a deep cult classic. But no matter how obscure, this Gulf Coast quintet is on every Florida screamo completist's desert island list. Also note how, compared to Reversal of Man, Early Grace incorporates more of the tears-and-boogers-stained-sweater shrieks of New York City's reigning outfit when it comes to manically emotional hardcore, Saetia.

3. Carlisle (Orlando)
If Lifetime were a screamo band, they'd be Carlisle. OK, the comparison may be a little crude. But there is no counterpoint to the claim that this band had a knack for embedding straight-up hooks -- even more on the pop-punk tip than Tunes for Bears -- into the screamo template. If you Google around, every last blip on this '90s scene-centerpiece boils the equation down to one key descriptor: "Catchy."
