A veteran New York punk outfit with a strong melodic emo sound, Bayside rose to mainstream success in the mid-2000s with a series of records for the Victory label. After enduring a tragic 2005 van accident, the group rallied to release 2007's The Walking Wounded, kicking off a streak of increasingly successful albums including 2011's Killing Time and 2014's Cult, which, at number 24 on the Billboard 200, marked their highest chart performance to date. Along the way, the Queens-based combo expanded their sound with several acoustic releases, a live album, and a set of eclectic covers. After releasing 2019's Interrobang LP, Bayside capped off two decades together with 2020's Acoustic, Vol. 3.
