The Promise Ring was an American emo band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They gained an underground cult following and are widely regarded as one of the pioneers of second wave emo. Formed in 1995, they first split up in 2002 and temporarily reunited in 2005. In November 2011, the band registered a Twitter account sparking rumors of a reunion, which were soon after confirmed by drummer Dan Didier in an interview on AltPress.com. The band has released four full-length studio albums, plus various EPs and singles.
