I must give them credit. They've lasted a lot longer than I thought they would albeit their popularity is waning considerably.
Just curious. Whats makes you think their popularity is waning? Maybe on here the majority of people had a change of heart since they progressively went pop rock, but theyve grown significantly over the world. Dirty Work was 6 on Billboard which was two down from NP, but it also sold way better overseas than NP did. And this record I suspect will continue to show growth and even get in top 3 unless theirs a couple really big pop releases that week.

Even though their demographic has changed a bit, I personally think their still on the rise. and since theyre basically brothers since theyve been doing this since 15-16, and also since I think Alex is an amazing song writer and has a strong voice to keep them relevant to their fanbase, I think they have a long ways to go

Also I think its funny how popular these lyric videos have gotten over the last couple years. It's basically a necessity to have one for all big singles. I thinks its pretty cool. Also, people who do them probably makin some good change for doing something (to me) sounds pretty easy. That being said, this one had a couple cool moments when they played with the album artwork. Wouldve been cool if they did some animation with the birds on the cover though

Nobody is making 'good change' in the lyric video business.
Yea bad word choice. I was going more for just that they were making easy money. Didnt mean to imply they were making a lot

Still love the band, but they definitely lost popularity and momentum.

They went from
Playing 3k+ capacity venues in the US back to house of blues shows.
Really? Ive only been a fan of the band only since like 2009-2010 so I was unaware of that. You know what year/tour that was? Im pretty sure at least in Cleveland theyve only headlined at our HOB and nothing higher. Even so, theyve definitely gained more popularity over seas and out of the country in general, which Id say is moving in the right direction.

Could you be talking about the Believers Never Die Tour with Fall Out Boy? Because that was more 3k capacity and amphitheathers, but they were supporting Fall Out Boy and Cobra Starship and only played like 6-7 songs so thats not a fair assessment if thats the tour youre speaking of.

Anyone else notice a slight The Starting Line sound right before the chorus?
I didn't at first, but listening I can kidn of hear it. Since Im a nerd, I had to look and find similarities. I mean the melody is slightly different, but the prechorus' to this and Best of Me are fairly similar and end on the first note of the key (which isnt saying much haha) and have a break and only a semitone difference in key, so i can see it.

When I first listened I got more similarity between the two with the octave guitars in the intro and reintro after the first chorus. Different melodies of course but same concept.
