Middleburg, Florida, doesn't seem like the locale that would birth one of today's most popular screamo bands, but that's exactly the case when it comes to the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. Propelled by the ubiquitous anti-violence anthem, "Face Down," the band's major-label debut, Don't You Fake It, has made the unfortunately monikered act a household name for FuseTV viewers worldwide — and after a largely sold-out stint on the Take Action! Tour, be prepared for the band's buzz to reach deafening levels. Those of you looking for the successors to Story of the Year's throne, look no further — but please just refer them to RJA.
