Interesting... I think Jonathan Jones's vocals are hard to beat though.

gah, Waking Ashland remains one of my favorite bands...both the full length and the Telescopes EP were gems...

the new singer sounds sweet, but not nearly as distinct as Jonathan was. Should be interesting to see what direction this band goes in -- i really didn't enjoy Ashland's second full length much at all.

Not bad, but it's unfortunate they will always be tagged with the line, "Too bad Jonathan isn't your vocalist."

Pretty good tunes, but I wish they can change their name because it sounds too similar to "Just Surrender"

eh not that good of a vocalist but the music is great and the back up vocals (ryan) are better... he should just sing! honestly im sure Waking Ashland might just get back together some day.. maybe atleast but we shot the moon and this new band cannot touch or come close to Waking Ashland!
eh forget this... im over it
