Wikipedia

Motion City Soundtrack was an American rock band that formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1997. The band's longest-serving lineup consisted of vocalist and guitarist Justin Pierre, lead guitarist Joshua Cain, keyboardist Jesse Johnson, bassist Matthew Taylor, and drummer Tony Thaxton. Over the course of their nearly twenty-year career, the group toured heavily and released six studio albums, the majority on independent label Epitaph Records. The band's sound, at times described as pop punk or emo, makes notable use of the Moog synthesizer.

The group was formed in 1997 by Cain and Pierre, but took several years to solidify a lineup and record music. The band signed to Epitaph in 2003, which released the band's debut album, I Am the Movie. Their breakthrough album, Commit This to Memory, arrived in 2005, and their third record, Even If It Kills Me (2007), was also very successful. The band briefly signed to major label Columbia for their fourth record, My Dinosaur Life (2010), and rejoined Epitaph for Go in 2012, after which Thaxton left the group and was replaced by Claudio Rivera. Their last album, Panic Stations, was released in 2015. In 2016, the band announced an indefinite hiatus and the So Long, Farewell tour. Tony Thaxton rejoined the band for the So Long, Farewell Tour.
