Amber Inn

All Roads Lead Home 12″ LP

Black Vinyl

Amber Inn were a four-piece emo/hardcore band from Sacramento, California that were around from 1994 to 1998. They were foundational in the dark and dynamic Dischord-influenced hardcore scene that’s now better known as “emo”. Taking their cues from Fugazi, and along with contemporaries Indian Summer, Amber Inn ripped through songs of octave-chord and dissonant messes, shouted vocals, heavy bass, tense rhythms, and the loud/quiet Slint sound. They were one of the earlier Ebullition Records bands, and one of the many flagship bands that label put out. Their sole LP, All Roads Lead Home is one of the greatest documents in 90’s emo, and was later re-released to function as a discography album, including all their released material which was mostly put out on 7″s.
