Not seeing either of those influences. In fact, this is the exact stuff GAD rages against. It sounds like all the post-Coheed stuff from the past few years.
I was aiming for a general "quirky pop punk meets finger tapping" with the RIYL. Admittedly I'm not the best at drawing comparisons haha.
@RazorCrusade They're still a developing band trying to pin down a sound, but I don't know if I'd call this the exact stuff GAD rages against. If anything, there's some intelligent pop punk being written. The last track is a jam.
