This Town Needs Guns are a British Math-Pop quartet. Many people claim that they are not Math Rock or Pop but their complex time signatures and mathy riffs suggest otherwise. I think they would be a good suggestion for Math Rock or even Crossover because they feature all the things that other math rock bands feature and only feel a bit more accessible so they are automatically called pop. 




And on an unrelated note, excuse me for sending so many band suggestions Embarrassed

I say yes but as I have no say in it, you probably don't care. :P

But truthfully, I can see how they would be found poppy, especially the Animals album. The EPs are much more mathy IMO.

Actually, 2 is minuscule compared to a few members here Wink

I think these guys might fare a decent chance at Crossover, although Math Pop hasn't done well before.

Wait - I knew this band name was familiar. They were suggested a few weeks ago here: http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=76863&KW=this+town+needs+guns&PID=4100324#4100324

I'll still go ahead and alert the xover team, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

Oh, I didn't see that. and as for suggestions, I suggested 2 math bands today, a postrock band yesterday, and a long while ago I suggested around 6 bands, 2 of which have been included (I think)
