    I agree that they need to be on "better tours" but the way I see it as maybe some of those kids who listen to some of those shitty bands will hear something really good and start getting into better music. I know that sounds really harsh, but those bands lack originality & musical talent.

    These guys really need to get on better tours. They opened for Asking Alexandria and We Came as Romans last night, and they're playing Warped Tour this summer. Seriously? They should be touring with the likes of Suicide Silence, Whitechapel, Veil of Maya, All Shall Perish (if they continue) etc.

    I quite enjoy the use of synth on the new album. At this point I'd rank the albums as The Discovery>TWDA>The New Reign>A Higher Place

    My favorite is their first album. Also I think "Tomorrow We Die Alive" is the worst album title I've ever heard [2]

    While it is inconsistent, I much prefer it over Tomorrow We Die Alive. Not even a year and this album is severely lacking in replay value ;_;

    A Higher Place doesn't do nearly as much for me as the others. It sounds so sterile. Some good tracks, but every other release by them is more consistent.
