Their name is awkward to say and is missing an apostrophe. Music's okay, but they do that easycore/poor-man's-With the Punches sort of thing that I'm not too big on.

When you said poor-man's-With The Punches I thought maybe I might like these guys. With The Punches continue to be the only band doing the 'style' right. *sigh* Band isn't terrible... but they do need to work on some things.

I don't even think WTP did this style right. Seams and Stitches is the only release of theirs I've liked, and I think that's because it sounds far more influenced by The Wonder Years than old Four Year Strong.

I really like Seams and Stitches. The older stuff, whilst not great, is enjoyable and great for sing-a-longs. They really worked hard on the lyrical side of things which you can see in Cags or Postcards.

The whole "easycore" thing is pretty much based around FYS so it's a given they will sound similar for a bit. It takes a while to get settled from what I've seen.

Yeah, the lyrics on the new record are great. I know it generally takes bands a while to really find their sound, which is why all of the easycore bands get way more interesting when they stop playing easycore.
