Rx Bandits - The Resignation (2003)

The Rx Bandits are a very intriguing band. They can appeal to almost anyone with their usually poppy choruses and the beautiful vocals of Matt Embree. They also use a lot of reggae inspired riffs and even when they arent playing anything with that kind of sound you can still feel it in the background or maybe some trombone will come into the picture. They are also very technical and use a lot of tie signature changing in a bunch of songs but do it gracefully so it doesn't feel like mathrock but still ads an interesting touch. Not to mention the amazing drumming in every song that really keeps it going. This is somewhat popular stuff but if you havent heard it yet, definitely give it a chance.
