They're not a terribly well-known band, but I really like their music. I was wondering if anyone knew any similar bands. I was told to listen to Biffy Clyro and it's not bad, but it's not quite what I'm looking for.

Here's some examples of HURT songs;

Rapture (one of their best in my opinion);

Losing;

Pandora (off their new album which is great);

So yeah, I'm looking for some bands which are similar, link 'm up people!

If you live in America, I suggest trying out Pandora [http://www.pandora.com/].

I'm not really into bands like this, so I'm of no help otherwise

You could try last.fm too. Here's their page there http://www.last.fm/music/Hurt. There's similar artists right below the description.

I would check out 30 Seconds to Mars, though. They sound somewhat similar to this band, I think.

Perhaps Gojira would suit your tastes ? [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqLh2-MUhNk"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqLh2-MUhNk[/ame]:)

Pretty cool song, but not what I'm looking for. Gojira sounds more metal-y to me. :O

What aspects of Hurt are you looking for exactly? They've got such a unique sound that it's going to be hard to find something similar, IMO.

Tough question. I don't know, really. Their whole sound appeals to me and I was hoping there'd be bands out there who sound similiar. I couldn't tell you exactly what it is that makes me enjoy their music, all I can say is "all of it". :O

This is probably a bit of a stretch and probably harder than what you're lookin for, but some off the stuff off Apocolyptica's Worlds Collide album reminds me slightly of Hurt, if only because Hurt uses stringed accompaniment in a lot of their songs:

Type in "hurt", it'll find all the bands that are related to it. Also works with movies too!

As for bands LIKE Hurt? I guess "Sick Puppies", "10 Years" and "Rev Theory". Give them a listening.
