the usual is a band from the shithole that is hagerstown, md. they play hardcore/ punk in the vein of bands like l'antietam and we were skeletons. they like to release things in the summer, as their six song ep, "we missed a season", was released in the summer of '09, their split with migrations was released in the summer of '10, and their full length album, "light letters" was released in the summer of '11. their newest record "my life is the pause" is now out and downloadable on their bandcamp. theusual.bandcamp.com.
