The Colorado-by-way-of-Illinois band Planes Mistaken For Stars were ticketed for some degree of stardom when their first full-length album, Fuck With Fire, dropped in 2001. That was the same year that brought Thursday's Full Collapse, Hot Water Music's A Flight And A Crash, and Converge's Jane Doe. In other words: a boom time for scathing,… More »
