Sound the ’90s emo band reunion alarm, because we’ve got another one: Piebald is back. Formed in Andover, Massachusetts in the mid-’90s, Piebald originally existed as a straight-up hardcore band before it embraced its more post-hardcore and emo tendencies with the Sometimes Friends Fight EP in 1996. Unlike many of Piebald’s contemporaries at the time, who flickered out in the era’s overflowing scene, Piebald rose above, composing more radio-friendly, pop-leaning music, with songs like “Just a Simple Plan,” “Long Nights,” and the anthemic “American Hearts.” Piebald officially disbanded in 2007, when emo was officially “uncool” but now that emo’s fourth wave is alive and well, so is Piebald.
