Fireworks Release "Glowing Crosses" Video

Posted by - 02:34 PM on 03/25/14
Watch Fireworks' new video for "Glowing Crosses" in the replies. Oh, Common Life is out now.
My parents were only teenagers at the time of the Detroit riots in 1967, yet they can still perfectly describe the desolation and eerie silence those riots brought. The only light came from the glowing cross hanging on the side of the hospital, lighting up the front lawns of all the houses in the neighborhood. Although it didn't really mean anything, knowing that people thought it did was kind of powerful on it's own.

I know altpress and AP.net are mortal enemies, but a link with the background track by track would be cool.

I cannot express my excitement for this album. If you have not had the luck of catching them live yet, do so if given the opportunity. One of the most genuine performances I have seen a band give.

This album really disappointed me. I love everything they did before but this album is a drag of a pop punk album. I feel like they're trying throughout it to get it off the ground but it goes nowhere.

I just read the track by track and I was wondering does Chris just write the lyrics or do him and Dave both write? Since they're was a lot of lyrics about his father passing away I figured Dave wrote all the lyrics or at least some.

Both I assume. I'm sure the Dave's songs about his dad were obviously written by him, but it looks like Chris might've done most of the other ones.

Other than shots that are obviously recycled from other songs of this performance, you can tell the crowd is just standing still or unenthusiastically clapping since they aren't familiar with the song, which kind of results in a pretty lackluster video.

probably drags as a pop punk album because it isnt a pop punk album. i would call it an alternative rock album. no other way to describe it, but there's none of the signature double time drum beat that are always present in most pop punk releases. It didnt click with me on initial listen, but keep giving it a chance it gets better with every listen.

The album is too good. The Menzingers have to release some record to remove this from AOTY.

I really need to see these live again.

I enjoyed watching the video though; some footage from the guy who crowd surfed could have been interesting however.

This album has grown on me more and more with each listen. If it doesn't make sense now, it will, give it time.
