The CD came out today 11/3/2009. It's on sale at Best Buy, Hot Topic and FYE. It's streaming on their myspace.
It's that freaking good that I want every single one of you to know!!! The message is simple, if we all plant seeds of love, they can grow and the world as a whole can become a world that embraces love, not destroys it.
I gave in. Got rid of my Verizon Blackberry, got a 32GB iPhone 3GS. I am normally really hesistant of apple in general, just not something I was ever big on. But now I am totally converted. I won't be buying a macbook, but I do like this iPhone a lot. It's got so much functionality. I know I'm late to the game, but this thing rocks. Blows the blackberry out of the water in every way.
August Burns Red "Constellations" has finally grown on me. I think I really dig the direction they took. I will say, they still aren't that great at writing lyrics. A sample from the old album messengers is my best example "blinded by the inability to see." Being blind is the inability to see. But hey, they write solid Christian music with a message and I dig that.
All Time Low "Nothing Personal" - ok I didn't give it a lot of credit at first, but now I really like it. It is growing on me, we'll see if it can top their first EP and CD, although I don't think so, but I'm open to the idea!
I ended up not going to Warped Tour, best decision I've ever made. Definitely a waste of money, take that Kevin Lyman.
going to see We Came As Romans and The Word Alive on August 12-14, should be good times.
So if you've seen any of my million statuses in the last week you'll notice that they have all been lyrics by We Came As Romans. I don't think I've ever been more moved by a band. They play for the love of the music, their lyrics speak of love and brotherhood, and overall the band really makes the world a better place.
Well tonight we drove 300 total miles just to see this amazing band, and it was well worth it. First of all, they remembered all of us (shit they even remembered my first and last name!). During their last track "dreams" both singers Dave & Kyle brought their mics to Kyle, Nick, Luke, and I and let us sing the best damn parts of that song. During which they both gave us a look that just let me feel like I was a part of the band.
After the show we got a picture with the band, discussed party shirts, and they told us how crazy the 4 of us were, and that they have never seen people move just as much as the band does. It made all of us feel pretty cool, and I don't think a band has ever been that nice to me/us.
We made it our summer goal that at the end of their nationwide tour, we're going to follow them for 5 days. We talked to them about it and they're going to wear "party shirts" to every show along with us, and we will make sure to make each show even better than the last.
to say the least, this band is going places, and even if you don't think like how they deliver the message, you have to love the message they send, after all...it's simple, "BELOVED. LET US LOVE ONE ANOTHER"
This had to have been the best show experience of my life.
Yesterday it was pointed out to me when I said this "You know, I don't really care about interrogation technics, what needs to be done, needs to be done. I'm not saying I'm anti-obama or pro-bush, I'm neutral. Just look at Jack Bauer, he terrorizes the terrorists to get the info." My friend "you realize that show is on FOX right?" Me "Oh snap, they got me!"
I was just given Burden Of A Day's CD "Blessed Be Our Ever After" I'm a big fan.
This weekend is PBR time along with some fishing, and maybe project badass (It's Always Sunny in Philly anyone...)
Not much else going on, wrote a review for We Came As Romans, again hope it gets posted!
Music as of late:
We Came As Romans
Burden of A Day
Four Year Strong
The Wonder Years
That's the really really good stuff (youtube "hardcore drive by" to understand reference)
Went to see We Came as Romans at Attica Jr-Sr High School in Attica, IN on Saturday. It was totally incredible, the town itself was super boring, and this was in a cafeteria. Thankfully all 6 of the amazing dudes in WCAR put on the show of a lifetime. They had such great stage presence, I was definitely glad I made the drive there. I normally hate going to shows seeing as I'm 22 and I feel old, and I absolutely HATE hardcore dancing. Thankfully that was at a minimum at this show, and I was like 7 years older than everyone there haha.
CD's I purchased this weekend:
For The Fallen Dreams
Mychildren Mybride "unbreakable"
Attack Attack! "Someday came Suddenly"
Tomorrow I will definitely be out at Best Buy bright and early to get the new A Day To Remember CD.
