Warren Franklin & The Founding Fathers is a five piece emo band from Rockford, Illinois. Every Letter And Souvenir is their fifth release, being put out by Count Your Lucky Stars Records. Warren Franklin & The Founding Fathers play a brand of rock and roll that owes a huge debt to the midwest emo feel. These songs are big and melodic but never leave behind the base of emo, they describe their own sound as campfire emo. If you like good songwriting, catchy songs, earnest up front emotion and solidly played instruments Every Letter And Souvenir will solidly scratch that itch and get stuck in your head for weeks while doing it.
Feels like I only go backwards baby,
Every part of me says “go ahead”
I got my hopes up again, oh no… not again
Feels like we only go backwards darling
