I liked the last album a lot, but following them on Twitter on the first day of the RNC was a big mistake. I hate it when bands are more vocal about political issues than the music itself on social networks. They put out some surprisingly hateful tweets that nights, and I don't think I'd be able to forget about that.
That being said, I'm sure this record is great and I'll probably listen to it.
Twitter is a social network that the band may use any way they want. Whether they choose to just post things about their band or voice personal opinions. It's all up to them. You also have the choice to follow them or not.
Sorry. I hate it when people complain about stupid things. Anyway, you shouldn't even let personal opinions of the band members affect whether or not you like the music. Because if you do, you're an idiot.
