Their new single was a partial letdown, for me.

Heh Vagrant Stories...

Holy crap, didn't even get that reference until now. I never got around to beating that game, really wish I did.

I guess I don't "get" metal/screamo. How is the same site that bashes bands like OM&M and every other Rise band but is "happy to premiere" stuff by these guys?

I mean didn't these guys do a shitty metal cover of "I"m on a Boat" just like all the other shitty bands like this?

Well these guys are in no way metal, nor screamo.

Also the cover was intentionally bad to an extent. The auto tune on the cover was only used because the original had T-Pain and the song itself was a joke. Of course they kind of got forced into putting it into the set considering a lot of kids liked it and when they opened tours if the kids hadn't heard of them it worked there.

The lead singer keeps tweeting that "people who liked Kingdoms are going to hate this album." I really hope that's not true.

I like the album art, but the song titles are meh. This band overall is just OK to me to begin with.

I'm not going to lie, I was disappointed AT FIRST with Vagrant Stories... mainly because I was comparing it to Kingdoms... You can't do that... this is an entirely different entity of it's own. I think its good they aren't sticking with the same concept as most band's do, releasing the same sounding album year after year... but rather are testing the waters, especially with Fowler departing. Vagrant Stories has grown on me and I'm going to approach this album with a positive attitude until I can hear it through and through.

Thank you. How does no one see the difference between that song and Kingdoms? I guess we didn't help with that being the last thing we put out in 2 years... Must've looked like we were heading in that direction.


Ooops =)

I'll agree I wasn't sold on Vagrant Stories when the released it... And I can't say I'm a fan of the track titles "Party at Sean's House" and "I am not a Rock Star." Although, I'm really stoked to hear "Lawyered," which I'm assuming is a How I Met Your Mother reference, which is awesome.

But, regardless of my opinion about one or two track titles and the anticipated change of their overall sound, I'm still excited for this album. I really dug Kingdoms, so I'm sure I'll get into this one after a few listens if not immediately.
Now that I think about it, those do sound downright awful out of context. "Party At Sean's" is basically the only thing my group of friends ever texted each other when I was 18. His house, and my experiences there became synonymous with my idea of "home" and my teenage life. The song is about how much I miss all that.

"I Am Not A Rockstar" is a tongue-in-cheek song about scene band fame from the point of view of the singer. Since I wanted to make it clear, that I wasn't being serious, and the song is not about me, I stated so in the title.

Hope you don't hold em against us haha

Considering that a lot of the song titles on Kingdoms were tounge-in-cheek I assumed they were somewhat "sarcastic" and never took them seriously.

I loved that cover of I'm on a Boat. I mean, how much can you really do with a song like that? It's gonna sound like a joke no matter what.

I'm indifferent towards the artwork, I can overlook the song titles, and I don't mind the style change. Kingdoms was one of my favorite albums, but since most of what I love about Broadway is still there, I believe I'll love this album, no matter how long it may take.
