Aficionado 

These Albany-based alt-rockers have been on an ever-evolving sonic safari since their formation in 2004. What was initially supposed to be a straight-forward, in-your-face post-hardcore outfit grew into an 11-piece "theatrical prog-rock spectacle" before the line-up was sculpted into the robust seven-member group it is today. In 2011, Aficionado released its eponymous full-length debut, which garnered critical praise for its eclectic instrumentation and driving pop/punk sound. The band seamlessly transitions from slow-building verses into aggressive, anthemic choruses highlighted by lead-singer Nick Warhol's moody and melodic vocal assaults. Alt Press wrote: "When it comes to Aficionado's creation, it seems they're bringing punk through a minor revolution of sorts." I could not agree more. Viva la Resistance!
