Seeing as it's more or less Halloween, this week's Thing has adopted a bit of a screaming theme. I enjoy screaming, especially when it retains a healthy amount of melody, and New Jersey's own Distanced fit this bill well. Playing a passionate brand of hardcore punk, they very favourably remind me of Fucked Up (the pinnacle of the genre [obviously]).
This 5-track EP, Making Do, from July this year provides a great example of their sound and gets really hypnotising in places. My favourite track is the penultimate Collapse. I dunno, gang vocals really do it for me.
