i find when i encounter a band like this (i call them "that haircut" band), the look & sound falls into that stereotypical category, i also find annoying that there's emphasis on being 'heavy' in that genre, but in a bad way (repetitive breakdowns, amateur metalcore riffs, bad emo-ish screams, etc). I think it's because i'm 22 years old? This is today's teen alternative music, like what pop-punk was to teens in the early 2000s.
i'm stoked for this. whether or not most want to admit it, worse than a fairy tale was a complete evolution from in vogue. it was experimental and had a lot of atmosphere to it, where in vogue got repetitive at times but the style was pulled off very well. stills has a different voice but youll love it if you get used to it.
i think this new album will be heavy like in vogue but still have the different feel to it like worse than...
itll be better than both. although im not too sure about the titles... lets hope the music shines through.
