wondering what the band lineup even is anymore?
derek and kevin gone, last i heard john moved to brooklyn (?), louis hamel gone, tai wright plays bass for D.R.U.G.S. i think........
they replaced kevin with a friend of theirs, ant jones. but honestly i have no idea who's all gonna be playing on this record besides brian and connor.
I love ADTR and I love FLL but there are distinct breakdowns on 2nd sucks, It's Complicated, Sticks & Bricks and You Be Tails. Not as many as Homesick or previous material but they are definitely there. And for the record I think ADTR does breakdowns better than most other bands.
You can hardly call the bridges in It's Complicated or You Be Tails "breakdowns," man haha. At least not even close to the traditional sense in metalcore, or what he's referring to I'm sure.
I definitely understand what you're saying, the It's Complicated one is more easycore and the You Be Tails one isn't the usual chugging, but there's still a pit call and an "Oh" before them. I dunno, guess it depends on how you define breakdown, but I agree in that they aren't genericore breakdowns haha.
Wow... this comment was pretty ridiculous, typing out a whole paragraph about breakdowns hahaha I'm such a tool
Unfortunately I will not be recording on this album. The drums are being done by Tim Java again (Darkest Hour, Dead To Fall) out in New York. I will however be playing any and all live shows post recording.
