They were great when I saw them open up for fys.

Really prefer the older version of sorry.
Yeah, it's crazy how much bands grow. I was looking up older news that we posted about them (it isn't much) and they were support for that CBK/FYS tour. I remember we were all like "Who's that?"

And now I'm pretty sure a ton of people will know who they are very soon.

Sorry about that. What didn't you like about it? They're definitely more on the Southern rock n' roll side of things.

I think "Riot Food" and "Man in the Sun" are really solid.

The chorus of the former really does have an IATA vibe to it, even down to the vocals.

Not bad. Don't really see the letlive comparison.
There's bits here and there in the guitar work, his singing voice and showmanship.

You'll find influence from a ton of bands, so you can't really look for an overwhelming sound from just one band.

Holy shit, this band is alive?! That EP I picked up at the FYS tour in 2010 was fantastic, I just assumed they had thrown in the towel
That's badass that you caught them on that tour. I think they'll blow up, even though there's definite filler on this album.

If they had more songs like the 1st track and a few screams here and there, they'd be even better.

Remember spinning the EP a lot back in fall 2009/early 2010. Will listen to it later but i'm a bit disappointed they rerecorded these really old songs.
Why? A lot of bands re-release older music to refine the sound/recording quality and expose listeners to them unfamiliar with their older stuff.

First I was skeptical when it said fans of Paramore and I Am The Avalanche that have nothing in common... but then I heard the band and it didn't sound like either.

If you've read through the thread I said there are elements in each song that have a particular band's sound. It really depends on the track youre listening to as they obviously draw influences from a ton of bands. I listed what I knew people would be familiar with. "Man in the Sun" sounds very much like Paramore (for one, the "Monster" pre-chorus sounds just like the pre-chorus here).

Ehhhh can't get into this. Sounds too much like Papa Roach or Hinder style radio rock.
The only song I remember from P Roach is "Last Resort" and I've never heard Hinder so I'm should probably feel lucky it doesn't affect my interpretation of their music. Most of it sounds like southern rock to me honestly.
