Pierce the Veil has been at the post-hardcore game for a while now, forming in 2006 by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes. Their fourth full-length LP, Misadventures, drops soon (May 13) and we couldn't be more stoked.
Our Sleeping with Sirens obsession knows no bounds...and apparently the youth of the world agrees with us! Not only is the Orlando band one of the biggest names in the genre, they're also one of the best, writing songs about self-improvement and feeling less alone. Music as therapy, ya know?

Bring Me the Horizon has existed for over a decade, so you could consider them the veterans of our collection. When you think of the origins of post-hardcore, however, purists might point to bands like At the Drive-In and Thursday, which make BMTH look like babies. The band's latest single, "Drown," shows remarkable progression in their sound, taking a heavy genre and making it loads more accessible. (If you need to ease into this music, we recommend checking out the 5 Seconds of Summer cover of the song.)
After leaving Escape the Fate in 2008 and facing some jail time, frontman Ronnie Radke formed Falling in Reverse. His new band has proven to be equally as beloved as his first, due in large to their latest album, 2015's Just Like You. The record is a lot of fun and manages to make post-hardcore sexy—not an easy feat!
Emarosa has also been around the block, starting in 2006, but they're also enjoying something of a glory moment. The Kentucky band lost its vocalist a few years ago, giving the role to Bradley Walden (you might remember him from our metalcore mega-babes list). The new singer and new lease on band-life allowed the guys to score their best-selling record to date, Versus, in 2014.
