I had told Fiddlerman about this band a little while back, but wanted to share them with everyone. They have influence of rock, acoustic, classical, and are an eclectic band with smart, thought provoking lyrics and wonderful music. The kind of band who can appeal to anyone, really, especially one who gives more than an individual single a chance. The violin that singer/writer J. Loren playing in some of the songs is lovely, haunting, and holds strong without overpowering. He played with orchestra bands when he was still in high school and was clasically trained. The band is called Hurt. Some songs to check out on youtube or itunes, for anyone interested. Note, look up the regular versions, the acoustic versions, or on youtube, any video from the tail end of 2011 billed as "live acoustic", as I attended that live acoustic set and it was the best musical performance I've attended. Intimate, captivating, and the guys were awesome and approachable.
Danse Russe (plenty of violin)
Rapture (no violin, but great song, especially in acoustic)
Fighting Tao (violin/guitar double solo at the end, amazing song)
Wars (a building song, where the violin and guitar tandem sound like an orchestra at times)
Cold Inside (The singer wrote this song when he was 12. Awesome song.)
Overdose (Builds and builds and builds...)
Et Al (One of those songs that is so pleasing because of how unique it is)
Hope you all enjoy! Any of their songs are worth more than 1 listen. How We End Up Alone is their new single, with violin, for the album (the crux) coming out in March.

So much hate and violence
What it took to build me
Wasn't enough to kill me"
