In recent years, there has been a huge resurgence in 90's influenced Emo. Classic bands such as Mineral, Texas Is The Reason, American Football and others reuniting to play shows for the first time in years. There has also been swarms of new bands celebrating the genre, with a sound that harks back to the glory days such as Moose Blood, Into It Over It, and Joie De Vivre. At 991.com we have recently picked up a collection of some of the lesser known bands who have a sound similar to all of the above from Europe, The US, and The UK. Here are just a few of the highlights.
