This is definitely a comeback year for punk rock (especially Fat Wreck Chord bands, current and former). New Only Crime, new Mad Caddies (the same day too), new Strung Out, already got a new Lawrence Arms.
I can't wait. This clip sounded awesome.
And I was literally just wondering if we're ever gonna hear anything new from these guys a few days ago. It's been 7 long years since their last album on Fat (same with Mad Caddies).
Eh, it was ok. What draws my attention more is that 4/5 of the members were in prominent hardcore bands and then the other was in Tegan and Sara. I know that really has nothing to do with how they all function together as a band, but that just seems like an odd pairing to me.
See guys, this is why it's OK to have Issues and Like Moths to Flames on Rise Records...those bands make Rise tons of money, so Rise can put out great-sounding albums by awesome bands like this. I'll take it.
