Transit is an American emo band from Boston, Massachusetts. After their formation in 2006, they have released four albums, two EPs and a split EP with Man Overboard. Although they have been influenced from stable bands in the emo genre such as Saves the Day, Death Cab for Cutie, American Football, Fairweather, Lifetime, and Hot Water Music their sound has transformed from that raw indie rock connotation from their early releases into a more polished fusion of pop punk and contemporary emo. Transit is currently signed to Rise Records alongside such bands as Man Overboard, Piebald, Hot Water Music and The Jealous Sound. In 2011, Listen & Forgive reached No. 9 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and No. 40 on the Independent Albums chart. After performing on the Ernie Ball Stage during Warped Tour 2012, they had released Young New England, which reached No. 4 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and No. 40 on the Independent Albums chart.
