I find myself getting excited for about a second, then losing all interest. They haven't done anything unique since '06, and even that's a stretch. You know it's time to call it quits when you can't outdo your first EP 2 EP's and 2 LP's later.
The only thing that would get me interested is if that whole Anthony Green doing "Seven Years" with Beau and Justin a couple of months ago turned into a little reunion tour, or even an EP (temporary, of course, AG is better off in Circa Survive, a band that's still relevant, distinct, and dang awesome). Honestly, with all of the drama behind AG leaving almost 10 years behind them, I can actually imagine it happening. I'd be very curious to see what "Worst of Me" and "Bury Your Head" would sound like with AG on vocals.
AG has been teasing a "Heavy project" for a while now.
Probably not going to happen, but it would be cool, at least.
EDIT: and has anyone sticking up for the S/T actually listened to it lately? I threw it in for a long car ride the other night, and besides a few tracks (Bury Your Head, I Never Wanted To, Collapse) the album is pretty much on par with ISOSG overall. It just doesn't hold up that well. Most of the songs blur together; the only benefit it had to ISOSG was coming out at a point where it sounded new and "innovative."
Lovemaker/Worst of Me is the best Cove-era Saosin song, IMO, only because it sounds like it could have come from TtN-era Saosin.
