After Hours 07/17/07 12:16 PM

I'm glad to hear from them!

White Noise 07/17/07 12:24 PM

i don't think that this album will be as good as there first two.

They're playing a "Hometown Takeover Show" here in St.Louis with some of the more popular local bands from around here on August 3rd @ The Pageant, hopefully they'll play some new material, I'm interested to see if they keep on writing heavy, powerful stuff, or if they're going to make any drastic changes in sound that a lot of people are doing lately

chrisstahl 07/17/07 02:58 PM

yeah i kinda grew out of them too. whenever they come on shuffle in my itunes or on my ipod i skip it for some reason

oldskool 07/17/07 03:16 PM

I just hope they make some really killer powerful songs in vein of "is this my fate he asked them" That song is soo sooo good, and after hearing that and some of the other songs on "in the wake" I know they have it in them to write really good songs!! also, when they do another headlining tour they better not dog portland,or again!!!!!

Your a moron. The last cd was wonderful. Good instramentals,great hardcore inspired vocals with mostly a posi core theme in the lyrics.

I hope they continue the same direction if they hooked up with machine I would wet myself

Yeah, that would be the best combination - partly why I like Rise Against so much. I hope they increase the pop sensibilities of Page Avenue while maintaining that hardcore style.
