These 10 years past, it’s been hard to forget about the, well, soundtrack that guided us through our young adult transitional lives. With Commit This To Memory’s decade anniversary, the Minneapolis-based quintet is celebrating more than just a recording career milestone. After nearly two decades in the biz, these boys have managed to transcend the rather pigeonholing “emo” label, while maintaining a, dare we say, committed fan base of Epitaph Records-era devotees.
Given the band’s propensity for crunchy bits of pop with a punk bite, it’s not hard to see why famous fans like Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy saw fit to participate in Commit’s creation: Hoppus produced and Stump guested on the debut single, “Everything is Alright.” Commit yourself to being at The Intersection on Jan. 18. MCS guarantees at least 95 percent of your tears will be happy ones.
