Rites Of Spring, from Washington, DC, was part of a new wave of bands that appeared in 1984-1985, originating from the DC hardcore scene, that are considered by many to be the first wave of emo. The group formed from the ashes of Insurrection, a hardcore band featuring Brendan Canty (drums), Michael Fellows (bass), and Guy Picciotto (guitar). Guy's poetic lyrics and impassioned delivery led the group to be tagged as "emotional hardcore" (later shortened to "emo") by some critics and naysayers. 1st Full Length Originally released in 1985. 12 Tracks. Black Vinyl. Reissue.
