1. really all they did was remove the screaming, but they already had a lot of singing anyways
2. the rest of that album would fit in with this new song if he screamed maybe a few lines
3. they only got rid of a guitarist (and didn't replace him) since they have been signed
4. musically its not to different
Signed? I'm pretty sure they're only using Epitaph for physical distribution if not at all and are independent now. This is what I mean all the subtle changes... add up to a lot of change. Also removing screaming changes the sound quite a bit, you make it seem minor.
