Post-hardcore has had some fantastic releases during 2018, but before you make your end of year lists, you definitely need to hear If I Were You’s newest album “Inner Signals”. Ever since forming in 2011, the Poughkeepsie native band has been consistently putting out quality material, and with this being their fifth overall release the band decides to try some new things while sticking to their own unique take of post-hardcore.
