Awesome! Chase's vocals definitely take some getting used to, but I still really like the song. Can't wait to see them again next Sunday with Cartel and New Found Glory.
Hmm..this sounds really, really different to me.
I still love them but I enjoyed the gravelly voice/gritty music just as much.

fuck this lead singer. literally sounds nothing like the last 2. at least the second one sounded a little like the first. this is a giant bum out. I'm legit a sad guy right now.
It's their guitarist (since they're a permanent four-piece now). But yeah, I'm still not 100% sold on these changes yet.

i realized this after I posted it. but still, so bummed that they lost the gruff.
For sure. Let's hope that this ends up being a decent direction.

Not bad. I'm kind of glad Chase is handling the vocals now as opposed to them finding an entirely new singer.
I definitely like the idea of them as a 4-piece.

Also, the title of this record is easily the best I've come across in a long time.

It's definitely different, but isn't that to be expected? Chase has to write music to suit his voice now, instead of writing for singers like Matt and Stu. I really dig this shit. I got a chance to hear a couple other jams in Vancouver, and they also sound sick. Stoked for these guys and their new direction.
The beginning and rhythmically it's still very LWL, but it's not surprising that people were expecting some hard-edged stuff. They've taken all of it out completely.

like, he hit the notes, but it definitely wasn't as exciting as the old LWL. The set list was lacking. They finished with Bottle of Charades. and they played dude manor. I was hoping for Coolin' With Costa.
Well maybe over time he/they'll get more lively as they adjust to their permanent lineup change.

I saw this band play as a 4 piece with Chase singing once in November 2008 and once in January 2013. Both times the sets were awesome and when I see them in exactly one week again I expect the exact same thing. Sure the sets aren't as lively with only 4 members and sure Chase sings differently, but I don't see that as a bad thing. This band still rules and I'm sticking by them.
That's fair. I really do love them, but I need to hear more of their new stuff to see how much I dig it. I'd probably go see them anyway. Still too early to judge. I actually like his voice, but I would love it if they brought back the heavier music.
