EP: Teen Suicide – i will be my own hell because there is a devil inside my body

I grew up watching Emo music videos on Fuse and MTV2, so even though, looking back on it, a lot of that Emo music was ridiculously over the top and had a very low threshold for integrity, it still holds a firm grip on the nostalgic part of my heart.  When I first stumbled across Teen Suicide’s i will be my own hell because there is a devil inside my body EP I was able to draw the connections to the Taking Back Sundays and Coheed and Cambrias of my past pretty quickly.  The band’s name, the EP’s dark title, and the long song titles that almost draw out to complete sentences brought me back to the glory days, but not too far.  Teen Suicide has a way of packing all of the angst and melodramatic energy that made Emo bands rise to power in the early 2000’s into a song, in a much more real and believable manor than what I used to hear playing on Fuse.  The entire EP, aside from being really beautifully written, has brought back memories of my youth in a way that I don’t have to feel ashamed about, and I am infinitely grateful to Teen Suicide for that.  Stream my favorite song from the EP below then stream and download the whole thing after the jump.
