I don't understand the widespread hate towards BABE. I used to think it strayed from Mutiny and This Will Be... but it really didn't, or at least only slightly. Seemed like a proper follow-up. I'm no...

They really do. I remember first listening to "Don't Come Home" and kind of filing it away as something to keep an eye and ear on. Gave it a pretty consistent rotation since it was only 3 songs and...

Surprised this has no comments. They had another song streaming on here and the response was very positive. This fits right in.

I'll have to keep this band in mind when the EP drops later this...

I actually really liked it because of the screaming. Man Overboard doesn't really do that and I was interested in how they'd pull it off. Well done. Everyone had a different opinion on how to...

Pretty sure a backwards snapback is attached to Derek's head.

State Champs are great. The acoustic EP came out VERY well. Looking forward to the new material!

Hahah, knew it was gonna be Light Years flyers at the end.

Good stuff. Fun take on stereotypes and trends in and outside of their own musical scene.

Pat in the XXXL white tee LOL. It really does...

They characterize Paramore as "adult pop punk." Isn't punk born of rock? And pop-punk born of punk?

So... what exactly is the problem?

Just because they don't play your SPECIFIC subgenre, doesn't...

Heard the new singles and they're awesome, sounds like my favorite parts of Skip School and This Is a Stick-Up.

Best comparison throughout.

There's moments where PBC shines through, but that's literally only the vocals. They aren't as consistently gruff as PBC's were.

Nice mix of artists make up this...

Been on this band for a minute now. One of my favorites of the smaller DIY bands.

This song is very catchy and probably one of the poppier songs I've heard from them (check out their last album,...

Couldn't wait to show this to my wife, she's subjected me to this song countless times the past few weeks, but I'm unimpressed. That little riff was cool, and changing the lyrics to "Pete Wentz get...

That's... really fucking cool, actually.

Funny what happens when we have the facts.

On topic: can't this dude get girls 18+? You sing in a band man! Ya got problems. He should sit for a while.

I'm actually getting a very CD&DC vibe. I still listen to it regularly so no nostalgia here -- besides, it's my 3rd or 4th favorite album of theirs, just happens to have their biggest singles. But it...

Didn't know this (the case) was ever resolved. That happened relatively quick.

That led me to ask the questjon, wait, he's not in for life?

Dude is sick. There was a sex tape between him and a...

Yup. Those ones usually bring more long-term enjoyment. The self titled just caught my ear, now the follow up has the job of keeping me around. I typically enjoy listening through a full album...

Band tweeted out a Youtube link to a sampler of the album. About a minute per song: http://youtu.be/tBgtx_rO4Hw

Been super in to Heart to Heart recently. That self titled album is friggin' sick.

I know Dulce got some love, but it hasn't grabbed me like the ST. However, "Hellbound" is the one song that's...

Okay so it wasn't just me. Threw me off, didn't think he played.

Loved the song from the moment I heard it, and the video is equally as good for a 2 minute banger.

This band is my shit

Luckie St. is such a great song! The EP version rocks.

Cartel was my definition of power-pop or whatever for a minute there. They did it the best. Still making tunes but they just don't catch like...

I'm in the US as well and have never seen them live. I will drive hours to do so if they ever came back.

My rankings (favorite to least): Hours, Welcome Home Armageddon, Casually Dressed & Deep in...

We're in the same boat as far as being a fanboy of FFAF. I hate how everything gets cast off as not CD&DC or Hours, but like you said maybe I'm just blinded. I think they're back to making really...

Got a couple listens in. Immediately got a "Drive" from Hours vibe, with a mixture of some of the songs off Memory & Humanity. I think that's what people want to hear. I was caught off guard with...
