It premiered on altpress.com on Friday of last week. It hit iTunes on Tuesday. So it'd been out for the better part of a week. Lyric video was released, too (but the fans had already made their own and had been posting the lyrics to tumblr for days).
For those saying it's annoying to have the crowd sing the first few lines or whatever
Alex probably never even thought that much into it. He probably heard everyone singing and was like "holy shit, they already know the fucking lyrics" and let them sing it. I'm sure he wanted to let the fans have fun too. Plus he was probably and obviously just really stoked on how cool that was for him and the band. Soooo not sure what the problem is
Anyway. Sounds good!
Can't wait to see them again in October and November.
what i take away from this video is a disliking that they play live with a third guitarist and matt singing back up. at the same time, at least they are trying to re-create the sound from the record without using backup tracks and things of that nature ... that i know of. to say the least, i enjoyed the song better hearing it live then when i first heard the recording version.
i also thought about going to see them live this time around, after years of just ignoring it when they came back to town. but im not gonna pay money to have alex call me a "mother fucker"
