Alright, all the bands that you listed are generally overproduced and don’t have any advanced technical music parts to them, which I would suggest you try to branch away from, you will be enlightened. This is my all time favorite song by my all time favorite band, you should check it out…. I guarantee you that you can find at least one song by them that makes you want to cry because it is so well written and the lyrics are so relevant to life. This is that song for me.

…oh JK those 3 thumbs down I got for giving an honest and relevant answer just reminded me that people who enjoy typical ‘indie’ music are actually too close minded to appreciate real talent. so nevermind.

Well, the majority of the bands listed below are pretty well-known, but great nonetheless. And I think you’ll like them.
Matt and Kim
The Spill Canvas
La Dispute
The Strokes
Band of Horses
The Pretty Reckless
The Shins
Dashboard Confessional
The White Stripes
Dr. Acula
Modest Mouse
Neutral Milk Hotel
Mazzy Star
Escape the Fate
Haste the Day

Edit: Also, just because a song has screaming in it, doesn’t mean it’s screamo. You, like many other people, misused the term. If you want real screamo, go check out something along the lines pg.99. Black Veil Brides is a post-hardcore band, and in my opinion, a terrible one at that.

Uriah and Lo-Pro are my two currently favourite bands
