if they hadn't waved the fact that they were planning on doing more shows in front of us, you might be right. but alas, it wasn't the case, and it's sad that you think fucking with the heads of your fanbase is okay. but i still have my damn t-shirt. in many bands, the music is better than the people behind it.
"we were going to announce some shows but instead we'll leave you with this: some doors are just meant to stay closed" well fuck them. i should burn my 12 years tee shirt. dont tease us if you dont plan on doing shit. what asswipes
If you need it and letter to a former lover are my favorites, is definitely my favorite so far this year, somehow outdid the new menzingers for me, and the new ttmoe record is on a whole different level and not really comparable.
Twelve Years is fucking awesome, love the tempo, it's definitely more sad than last days of rome and I'm even more into it, there's a lot more substance to the music and it's a noticably more mature release. I was getting chills 25 seconds into the first song, I have no idea how people don't like it. Maybe not AOTY level quite yet for me with Handwritten, TTMOE stuff, and the Menzingers record being literally perfect, but this band has nowhere to go but up.
The full length is a grower. You need to give it a little time I'm finding. A lot of people listen to something once and then come in here and trash on it without really giving themselves a chance to fully form an opinion on it.
