I've had a bit of a renaissance with Alexisonfire, along with their new ep. The only thing that I've been reading that's not school related is House of Leaves, which I haven't had a whole lot of spare time for. Seems pretty wild from the little bit that I did read though.
How is this album? I haven't listened to Lifehouse in forever, but I saw this and was intrigued. The new songs sound much more poppy and radio-ready than their past stuff too. (i.e. dancey beats in the backgrounds and less rock-centric)
