They're definitely too mathcore to be considered progressive rock and it would almost be a tight squeeze in math rock.

It's like math-rock/post-hardcore.

Good stuff, sounds like a crossed-over form of math rock (or math-pop to a certain extent). Which basically means NO for PA.

This kind of bands was discussed here.

mathcore is math rock/metalcore, so I'd be willing to say they aren't mathcore.

This act can now be found in the Xover department. Ardent fans: Feel free to add the rest of their discography.

I think they're totally math rock, but they're not really all too progressive. Also, the dude's vocals are super emo, not that it actually matters though.

Ah, so the discussion is reopened... does math-pop type bands now have a place on this site? I sure as hell hope so, its about time.

 ^ they've been added to Crossover Prog, so this has no bearing on Mathrock or 'mathpop'
