Finally new Jonbenet songs. Good to hear. I've been waiting for new songs since a couple years ago. I think they even had a blog about writing new stuff back then...

Can't say I'm a fan of either, but IKTPQ songs are way easier to play than BMTH songs.. Anyways, Dave Nassie in Bleeding Through?! If someone told me that in 2003 I'd bet millions against them..

Anyways, new Khanate, new JonBenet. Awesome, I could've sworn both of them officially broke up.

Jona should go back with IKTPQ and tour the states.

New For The Fallen Dreams sounds like old FTFD, so really no change. Glad they can sound the same with a new vocalist.

The new Crimson Armada is amazing. Can't wait for their new CD.
