"I'm just tongue tied," sings Free Throw singer Cory Castro near the onset of the Nashville-based emo band's 2014 debut LP, Those Days Are Gone. It's a rare inhibited moment for the frontman, who has a tendency towards wordy, confessional diatribes, secrets spilling from his lips as readily as "Seinfeld's" Elaine Benes drunk on schnapps.

"I'm just tongue tied," sings Free Throw singer Cory Castro near the onset of the Nashville-based emo band's 2014 debut LP, Those Days Are Gone. It's a rare inhibited moment for the frontman, who has a tendency towards wordy, confessional diatribes, secrets spilling from his lips as readily as "Seinfeld's" Elaine Benes drunk on schnapps.

Over the course of the album's 11 tracks, the musician, who shares vocal duties with bandmate Jake Hughes, details rocky relationships ("Goddamn it's been way too long since we agreed on anything at all"), mental struggles ("My thought process is a constant rat race/A battle of emotions between numb and a bad place") and a lifestyle he fears could cut his days short ("The drinking, smoking … I should take better care of myself").

The music similarly refuses to hold back, largely building around big, cascading guitars that match the dual vocalists' note-for-syllable. That's not to say the band doesn't know when to pull back, however. Witness "Kim Tastie," a shattered, regret-heavy ballad that wallows gorgeously under the covers.

Daisyhead, Young and Heartless, Wanderer and Snow Day open the show.
