I was actually just wondering if they had a new album coming out. I strongly hope that it's more like Go West Young Man than No Rain No Rainbow. GWYM was unique and different. NRNR was just blah imo

Loved this band up until that last album. Bring me back a little melody. Ryan's got pretty unique vocals until he resorts to 3 straight minutes of screaming, then he just sounds like every one else.
Well-put. but I feel the music had a lot to do with that ya know

NRNR wasn't really generic at all, hardly any band does that eerie and malevolent type of post-hardcore/metalcore as well as they do (Go West had some of that feel but not as much), and Ryan's screams actually sound pretty menacing on that record (and not really like most other screamers in their scene) and I loved the dirty and buzzsaw style riffs that hard a hint of technical flair to it.

If anything I think bringing back some singing wouldn't go amiss, but I like that they're heavy now, should keep going in the NRNR direction imo but add some clean vocals.
I respectfully disagree. I think Go West had wayy more of that eerie feel. It had a distinct feel. That's I think what made that record different than any other album ive ever heard. No Rain got less of that eerie feel (although it had it) and just more heavy and more predictable in my opinion.
