41 Throwback Emo Bands You Can See On Tour Right Now

The bands you loved in middle school are still going strong

The early-to-mid 2000s were definitely a golden era for mainstream emo music (and, not so coincidentally, Myspace). That time period blessed us with enough sensitive pop-punk to soundtrack every angsty teen crisis; from earth-shattering breakups to broken promises to passive-aggressive friendships and everything in between.

If you were a 2000s emo kid, you fell asleep to The Postal Service quietly playing from your first generation iPod. When your first crush refused to slow dance with you, Taking Back Sunday patched up your emotional wounds. It was a beautiful time to be alive.

Now you're all grown up, but admit it -- you still have a soft spot for the bands that carried you through middle school, high school, and, hell, even college. And the good news is that they're still playing shows, touring across the country and the world. Here's where and when to catch your faves.
