I am not sure on this band A Working Model from Ann Arbor, Michigan.  They are hard rock, they are prog, they are emo, they are post but they are none and all of these.  They bill themselves as a progressive band, but their motto is "taking the progress out of progressive since 2001".  I guess that this makes them an 'ive band?   Any rate I know that many complain that today's progressive rock is not progressive enough so if the motto means what it says.... 
 
Here are their influences which are quite wide ranging:
 
Tool
King Crimson
The Mars Volta
Isis
Godspeed You Black Emperor!
Radiohead
Jesus Lizard
Interpol
U2
Pink Floyd
Rush
Mr. Bungle
Dave Matthews Band
At The Drive In
etc.
 
They have released one self-produced CD called An End.  Maybe they are just an Indie band that thinks they are prog; I'm not sure.  Please let me know what you think.  Thank you once again in advance for giving this band your time and consideration.
