No, but you should def. check them out. They are really great. Alot of hype on the "neon bible" album but i liked "funeral" much better. But both albums are 5 stars superb. It's almost like a modest mouse mixed in with bright eyes. My friend says it kinda reminds him of bruce springsteen. But check it out.

It's cool that they're supporting him, but they can't even vote, they're all Canadian. Unless they have dual, but i doubt it

I'm honored you burned your first post on my behalf. You're a kind young lad, I'll give these guys a shot.

The Beachland is fucking awesome. Such a small venue - this should be really, really cool for anyone who goes. Free pinball!

You guys are wrong. Lead singer Win Butler is a Texas native, and hence can vote. If not it would be stupid.
