How to Start an Emo Band in Middle School
Know emo.You can't start an emo band unless you know emo music. First of all, the following bands are emo: Rites of Spring, Embrace, The Hated, Sunny Day Real Estate, Dashboard Confessional, My Chemical Romance, Senses Fail, Jimmy Eat World, I Hate Myself, Saetia, American Football, Texas is the Reason, Matchbook Romance, Silverstein, Taking Back Sunday, The Used, Hawthorne Heights, Thursday etc.
Learn to play an instrument.This goes without saying. You can play guitar, bass, drums or sing, whichever one you are good at.
Find friends who are interested.Make sure they want to be in an emo band. It wouldn't be too good if they all showed up for practice and wanted to play hardcore punk now would it? Also try to get friends at the same musical level as each other, for it will help you develop as a band.
Think up an interesting name.Try to make sure your whole band agrees on it. The name should be 2-4 words long. A good name will have your listeners thinking (e.g. The Academy Is... "What is the academy?"; Jimmy Eat World "What in god's name could that mean?") Also donotuse an emo band name generator. Those are made by people who only wish they had enough talent to start a band.
Practice!This really can't be stressed enough. Find a garage or something and practice,practice,practice!
Write some songs together.It helps to write the songs together, collaboration never hurts. Your songs should be emotional and should derive from styles like post-hardcore, indie, alternative or even pop punk or hardcore.
Tell your other friends about your band.Most people will want to hear you.
Create social media accounts for your band.They will help you get noticed more widely. Back in the day Myspace was a good bet but now be prepared with Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram.
Have fun with it!
