They have been for the last six months.

That's good to hear. Hopefully they go with a different producer this time around though. My favorite from them is still Constellations.

Great news, I love everything they've ever put out. Pretty sure that they won't disappoint us.

iAMhollyood315 12/19/12 12:40 PM

I love them but i didn't think leveler was as good as Constellations though.

JayDanielHammer 12/19/12 12:40 PM

I still like Messengers most. It's the only one I can listen to straight through without it getting monotonous.

NateFoundGlory 12/19/12 12:45 PM

I'm okay with this.

high expectations

This all the way. I can recognize that all their releases are quality but Messengers and Thrill Seeker are the only two that I feel have discernable memorable songs. The only thing I remember from Constellations is "Don't excuse yourself from life today!!" and I recall the midi version of a song from Levelers.

Agreed, I loved that sound on Constellations (which I think is their best work), but on Leveler it made it seem like Constellations part two.

Hah, strange. I have a hard time listening to too many songs from Messengers in a row because I find them to be far too monotonous. To each their own, I suppose!

Rysker6 12/19/12 01:45 PM

I still never got their last record, I've heard pretty mixed reactions to it.

Scrawns 12/19/12 01:49 PM

I am pumped for this. Although I will say that I think leveler was perhaps a little too experimental.

Wow, really? Besides Thrill Seeker, I thought Messengers was by far the most monotonous. I love 'em all, though. Constellations was my favorite, but I'd still love to see some more experimentation a la Leveler.

Good. One of my favorite heavy bands.

esposimi 12/19/12 03:02 PM

Local band! Went to high school with some of the members.

Yes Yes. Most memorable riffs on that album.

johnnyferris 12/19/12 05:27 PM

Leveler was an amazing album. I can't wait to see what they do with these new songs.

Agreed, that was my biggest complaint about Leveler. I can appreciate them trying to keep the really heavy parts consistently throughout their material, but it's just not what I want from them anymore. Too many breakdowns results in songs just seamlessly blending together, wheras the songs on Constellations all stand out individually.

Brandon Allin 12/19/12 09:30 PM

Leveler > Constellations > Messengers > Thrill Seeker

This band just gets better and better. Their first two records don't compare to the last two.

thedaywedied 12/19/12 09:48 PM

If they mix the unstoppable momentum of Messengers and some of the variety of Leveler... we'll have ourselves a beast of an album.

Either way, I am anticipating the hell out of this.

PaperLantern 12/20/12 12:16 AM

Constellations and Leveler are two of my favorite albums ever, so if they keep progressing in the same direction, the new record should be amazing. I love what they've been able to do with that clean guitar sound thrown into the beginning or middle of an otherwise heavy song.

I think Messengers just has the perfect length. That may be why. And it could be one of those "Love what you heard first" moments.

I should have said it differently because I still ENJOY all of the albums.

Djentleman 12/20/12 03:48 AM

hopefully it'll make up for their corny & pointless holiday album

Nah, I figured that. I love all their albums; I just think Constellations did more with their instruments, and Leveler switched up their standard style enough to make it even more interesting. Actually, I prefer Messengers to Leveler - but I still think its key weakness was monotony, whereas Leveler at point just didn't sound as good as it should have.
