Not a fan of Chris' vocals. I think Scott should do lead vocals in a band, he was excellent in Allister. And whatever happened to Dan (from Home Grown/Paper Models) being in the band?!
I agree with everything you said. It's not that Chris has a bad voice, I just don't like it for some reason. And I was wondering about Dan, too.
As for sound, I hope that there's still that same fun pop-punk kind of feel to the music, but with better lyrics. I don't want to hear guys reaching their thirties still singing about how they were dumped and all that shit that a high schooler could write.
