The Scare In London

Time to make a post about my absolute favortie band for the past couple of years, The Scare. The band so far has only released two EP's (Masochist Mimes and Vacuum Irony), I own both of them and they are both crackers! At the start of the year the band made the decision that they wanted to relocate to London for awhile, mainly because they are sick of touring up and down the coasts of Australia and playing at the same venues all the time. Since the band has moved they have already been picked up by a label. If your thinking this band is just another emo / screamo band well, your sort of right, but this band is different, they're a mixture of At The Drive-In and Blood Brothers but with some crazy synth machine action!
