Envy

‘Post-hardcore’ in the sense that they moved on from headbanging a long time ago, today's Envy is more likely to appeal to fans of Mogwai and Mono than to grizzled punks who only change their T-shirts once a week. Since starting as a fairly conventional – albeit highly regarded – hardcore band in 1992, the quintet has expanded its sonic artillery to include the kind of colossal, cathartic guitar barrages preferred by post-rock outfits, and seen its popularity soar as a result. This 20th anniversary show coincides with the release of a mammoth box set, Invariable Will, Recurring Ebbs and Flows, that contains 14 analog records, two live DVDs and a 100-page book – because with Envy, it's always got to be epic.
