I've never liked Transit at all but I did like Man Overboard until that shit storm called Real Talkcame out. Sadly I don't think Rise Records is where you are going to get a new direction that is actually good. Best of luck though. Maybe they'll shock me and release something good.
I also don't like that Defend Pop-Punk thing they have going on, especially with all the auto-tune they used on some songs. There was nothing real about that. But anyway, again best of luck and hope they churn something good out this time around.
