I really dig the tattoo concept for the lyrics instead of words just flying around all willy-nilly. Song sounds pretty awesome too.

Enjoyed their last record so much more than what I was expecting. Solid band.

this band is severely underrated

One of the few "scene" bands that I actually enjoy listening to. Their last record was a huge surprise to me.

Although. They don't really seem "scene". They just look like normal blokes who drink too much and bodyboard at the beach

Who mixed this ? The mix is pretty bad. Almost no guitars.

Band is not at all scene. Don't see why people here hear metal and assume mallrat music.

I believe Will Putney of the Machine shop did. If you hear the actual CD eveything sounds great per usual his work but the volume is a tad low. Will is a superb producer but mixing seems to be hit or miss. He mixed Sienna Skies new album and it sounds good but has clipping and every song has a "scratch!" sound at the end of it.

I used the word "scene" because those are usually the band's they've tended to tour with. I didn't mean to insult the band in anyway, I'm just saying that I enjoy them more than the bands they usually go out on tour with. Probably poor wording on my part, but whatevs. This band kicks ass.

This band is awesome, love this song

people need to stop using these in their songs.... This is my... this is the... i am the... I say this because its played out HARD and they usual never really say much when doing so anyways.

That being said, the song isn't bad in general, nothing new though either. Dig the effects in the breakdowns and the chorus. I think peeps need to start focusing on making their verses more unique than just downbeat 1,2,3,4 shit, listen to some hip hop.
