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


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.

Last two shows I've been to we're sold out 3500 capacity room and a big festival they headlined. Their shows decreased in size because of the repetitive sets, decrease in music quality, and now less label backing due to the change again.
