With a thundering rhythm section, melodic harmonies, thick guitar riffs, and catchy pop hooks, Laymen Terms draws on influences such as Jawbreaker and Samiam to craft emotional hardcore similar to the Alkaline Trio and Thursday. The band was formed in Colorado Springs, CO, in 2000 by guitarist Devon Bryant and bassist Chris Sutherland of File 4, vocalist and guitarist Andrew Tanner of Lights Out, and drummer Jameson Becker of Blah. Their debut EP, An Introduction, released on Soda Jerk Records in 2001, captured an anthemic 7 Seconds style of punk rock, but fails to sound cohesive. The cohesive dynamics continued on their studio full-length Since Last December, issued in spring 2002.
