Very excited.

Tim McCall 11/07/11 10:52 AM

I can't get into that new song. Bummer.

Mattylikesfilms 11/07/11 10:52 AM

Good release date too.

Jason Tate 11/07/11 10:52 AM

If this isn't good - I'll rage.

ACA 11/07/11 10:53 AM

Their debut was a clear AOTY. I hope this one follows suit.

That acoustic performance was amazing! I can't wait for their new album!!

aradiantsunrise 11/07/11 11:01 AM

Isn't it February 12th? Says that in the article.


EDIT: Says 21st in the video, nevermind.

MikeYabs 11/07/11 11:04 AM

Unfortunately, it's my least favorite from them at the moment. Still have faith it'll work in context with the entire album. Nate's never been a "singles" kind of writer for me.

Blake Solomon 11/07/11 11:07 AM

yaaaaaaay

PengusNiugnep 11/07/11 11:07 AM

It's so far away, but I'm excited nonetheless! Aim & Ignite was wonderful.

Yesyesyesyeysysyeysyeyyseysyeysyes. ....I can't wait!

flks511 11/07/11 11:11 AM

Whatt the fuuuuuuuuuucccccckkkkk!!!!????

Holly HoX! 11/07/11 11:14 AM

Nate is one of the best living vocalist in any genre, he deserves to be more popular. I hope this albums gets the praise and exposure it deserves - even though I miss The Format and Sam a ton.

XenoAbe 11/07/11 11:21 AM

Wow, I enjoyed that a lot.

Tangledinkicks 11/07/11 11:23 AM

I think We Are Young is an amazing song. So stoked on this! Want now!

jdr277 11/07/11 11:26 AM

I hope they bought a pole vault cause they set the bar pretty high for themselves with Aim & Ignite!

Phil507 11/07/11 11:28 AM

Pumped to see them on Wed. Will report back on how the new songs sound.

CarouselBoy 11/07/11 11:41 AM

Sweet I'm really looking forward to this one

That was terribly lame. Anywho, I support anything Nate does. I'll be counting down until 2/21/12

bNz719 11/07/11 11:48 AM

So excited. That acoustic performance is amazing.
You can tell on Nate's face that he looks forward to singing that chorus with Janelle Monae every time.
Can't wait for the new album.

I'm hoping this makes it! I bet it won't because of FBR wanting it to be more radio friendly aka cleaner. Hopefully it'll be released one way or another!

phillipjacob 11/07/11 12:24 PM

oooo yes.

Thomas Nassiff 11/07/11 12:39 PM

Oh yay

"...a delicious, majestic mix of post-MCR grandeur, Queen harmonies, and Cobra Starship's ear for fearless genre-hopping."

Hmmmmm

These guys played a show at my school last month. They KILLED IT. I appreciate them soooo much more after seeing them live.

Hmmmmm

all of that sounds awful save for the Queen comparison. if you're getting compared to Cobra Starship, you're doing it wrong.

No doubt that this will be astounding. Nate Ruess is a master of his craft.

How about we wait for the album before we start making absolutely ridiculous claims that they must be "doing it wrong"?

Easily my most anticipated for 2012. And that acoustic video is brilliant.

Oh they're all over the place. All between shitty radio pop and shitty pop that can't get on the radio. That's their range.
