Yeah this band is going to be garbage. And I am not just saying that because they have a killer in the band who should still be in prison, but because Ronnie is so whiny and is almost 30 years old, it is kind of pathetic. Whiny music/emo-esque music was something of the early-mid 2000's and Ronnie is obviously still going to go that route. It is too bad though, because Ronnie has talent and song-writing capability, but the fact of what he has done along with the genre he likes, makes a bad combo.
I'd be interested to see what happens should they be on Warped Tour along with ETF. Much like I am hearing rumors of DRUGS and Chiodos on Warped. Drama.
Not that I like Ronnie or sticking up for him, but he didn't murder anyone. He went to jail for violating probation and someone else murdered someone and he was there. Bad, just not as bad. He would have done more time if he pulled a trigger and killed someone.
On another note, I secretly am interested in hearing what this band has to offer, as you said about early to mid 2000's, that's the kind of stupid music I grew up with, so it's always good to have a throwback or two. Why is it ok for pop-punk to make a comeback but not emo/screamo/wannabe metal?
