love this band. sad to see mike go, but if his heart wasn't in it anymore, then I consider it for the best. I have faith that these dudes with pull through and find an appropriate replacement, and come back bigger and better than ever.
having said that, this ep is fantastic, and mike sounded great here. looking forward to the new full-length and whatever else these guys have up their sleeves.
