I'll copy what I posted on their Facebook page after a first listen:

On a first listen, the song definitely has an "alternative Rock" vibe to it that deviates from my memory's imprint of the "AFI sound"...this isn't a bad thing in and of itself. However, I'll need to give it a few more listens (an in the context of the record) before making a complete judgement.

Regardless, I think their songwriting crested with STS... which isn't a bad thing. That album is the perfect mix of punk energy/ethos, and damn good songwriting. This track has too much going on...It's busy-and not in a good way.

It sounds like a mix of the dark theme/vibes from STS, the synth stuff from DU, and the alt-rock sound from Crash Love. Overall, I like it, and it makes me look forward to what else they have coming. I'd wish they would've released a faster song first.

For a minute there I thought I was listening to 30 Seconds To Mars.

Pretty good song.

I agree they do have a lot going on... but it's usually with restraint. For example, take the intro and guitar line from "Leaving Song Pt. II". There's a back and forth between the vocals and Jade's guitar lines, during the verses before each chorus. As far as guitar tones go, I've always recognized Jade's guitar work from the tone of his guitar, which is distinct in AOD, STS, DU, and CL. Here, I cannot hear it so much.

I do like it though... but it's not at all what I was expecting. That might just be it. Time to listen again. : )

Still my favorite band though!

Eh, I just see it as natural progression.
