At one point, it looked like VersaEmerge could be the next Paramore, or maybe even surpass them. But looking back, we can see that nothing materialized to much of anything for the band. What happened? Why did the bottom fall out? And was it actually because of their own label?

This week on the podcast, Tyler unpacks the history of VersaEmerge, concluding with a conspiracy theory from a former member of the band that alleges Fueled By Ramen signed VersaEmerge in order to clear them from competing with Paramore.

Also this week we have new music from Architects, August Burns Red and a full radio rundown.
