Meet Tampa Bay’s newest post-hardcore juggernaut, Limbs

Who is Limbs? You’ll have to ask the Tampa Bay post-hardcore band to find out for yourself. But it’s safe to say that the area, which has bred bands like Oceana (now Polyenso), Tides Of Man, and Underoath, has the next great band up their sleeves. Just a couple years after their formation, the band recently signed to Equal Vision Records. Their label debut, Sleep, drops October 27th – and it’s got 6 great songs, including a recently released video for “Poison”.
