Asking Alexandria has their upbeat breakdowns, with some electric music in the background. Alexisonfire had Dallas, Dance Gavin Dance had Jonny, A Day to Remember's lead singer can do both vocals, really well.

I'd like to hear some more with the soft vocals taking the lead, and the hard vocals following him. You guys actually have a shot at this, coming from someone who knows the genre well and knows what sells.

Don't go radio rock or you'll never make it, stay true to yourself and just do like ADTR and just tour and make albums. Somehow befriend someone at Warped Tour and start opening for them.
Completely agree with everything Collins said.
You guys sound really solid - especially for your first demo. I like the song... but you do need something to set yourself apart in the hardcore genre. This song, while good, doesn't show anything really unique.
