Emo band from New Jersey that often juxtaposes dark lyrical themes with catchy, pop-influenced rock music. Known for the talents of their acne-scarred singer/songwriter front man Chris Conley. A varied line up has produced a collection of albums that range from radio friendly to angsty post-punk. After their major label debut "In Reverie" was a flop they went back to indie label Vagrant Records and haven't look back since. They sound better than ever and have written some amazing songs. Conley has recently collaborated with Say Anything's Max Bemis on a side project entitled Two Tongues.
The first time I saw Saves The Day they opened for Hot Water Music at the Duke Coffee Shop. They were supposed to play Cat's Cradle but Smashing Pumpkins came to town unexpectedly and bumped them.
