The Promise Hero 

The Promise Hero (MySpace.com/thepromisehero)

Cleveland's Promise Hero plays melodic punk that would probably deserve the emo tag if it didn't rock as well as it does -- it's catchier than hell, without resorting to any of the genre's generic default moves. Singer-guitarist Bobby Vaughn has high-pitched vocals common to half the bands on the Warped Tour side stages, but his instinctive, rhythmic delivery makes songs like "The New Classic" and "No View, No Garden, Just a Wall" real (albeit rough) pop gems.
