I don't understand why bands continue to release filler EPs like this. You'd think the industry would have moved away from superfluous cash-ins like this.

Three bucks for the single + video + 2 live songs? Seems like a good deal to me.

I'm not saying the cost is a rip-off. Just that it's filler. It's a song fans already have, a video they can see on youtube and live tracks. Not worth charging for.

Most bands still sell singles though. For 1.29 on iTunes. Two live songs and the video for $.70. The idea is to promote the single.

Wait is the EP 3 dollars or 2? Now you have me confused.

Regardless, I know they're still one of the biggest rock bands around so single promotion is still a big thing, I get why it's being done, but this seems like such a relic of an out-of-date approach.

My bad, 1.70. I think it's 2.99 ... right? I dunno, I don't care ... haha. I'm assuming it's a boost single sales tactic.

Yeah. I get the rationale. Just seems like an outdated move.

Looks like we won't be getting another single then. :-(

Surprised there hasn't been a comment about Rise selling out yet.

Live songs do NOTHING for me. And I think when they're released on a short EP like this it comes across as filler.

spawnofz 04/17/12 01:17 PM

The live songs have potential but they just sound so muddy to me. They need to just take the effort to make a well done live DVD or CD already :P

caveBEAR 04/17/12 01:23 PM

No b-sides no care

satanisanerd 04/17/12 01:39 PM

Isn't there a new song on the Avengers soundtrack too?

I hate live songs.

Don't even like when an EP is called an EP when it doesn't have new songs. Or at least b-sides or unreleased material



In saying that. Best song on album
