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.

Hey guys,

I've been talking with the band about the direction of the record for a couple of months now, and (I'm not speaking for the band here) it looks to me like the new record will be bringing back more of the melodic/progressive/dynamic elements of "Go West" but will also retain much of the heaviness of NRNR. I think the general feeling about NRNR (again, not speaking for the band) was that it was approached more as a straight-up heavy, raw, aggressive record, but it lacked the dynamics, texture, melody, and atmosphere that "Go West" had. I'd personally like to bring back more of those elements and I'm sure the Greeley guys feel the same.

Personally, as a musician/music lover/producer I've always liked bands with more progressive elements so I'm really excited about working with the guys to bring those types of elements out in the music, and I'm really excited to start work on the new record. Hopefully everyone will like (or at least respect) what the band are trying to do with the new stuff, I'm sure they can't wait for everyone to hear it.

Love,
Cory Spotts

NRNR was really good I thought. Go West was good, but it was your standard screamo album from that year more or less. I think touring with ABR is what made them throw in blast beats and shit like that on NRNR. Either way I'm excited to see where they take this album.

Well that's fair enough, I can see why you would think that, I think there was less variety compared to Go West which was a definite weakness. For me NRNR was just unlike most "scene"core at the time, none were that heavy that I was quite surprised at how relentless it was at just being heavy, and therefore it avoided sounding trendy with the whole dubstep/electronic/OH-MY-GOD-ASKING-ALEXANDRIA sound.

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
Exactly!

You are the man and to my knowledge have produced the most heavy full sounding records I have ever heard. Thank you for your talent. You made Greeley's records sounds heavier then any other band in the scene and one day I hope to have you produce something for the project I am working on.
