I imagine they've gotten pretty tired of their older stuff. I remember reading somewhere forever ago that they got so sick of Mordecai that they pretty much totally replaced it by Selkies in their setlist. I imagine they feel the same about everything pre-Colors by now, it's been 7 years since even Colors.

i get that theyre probably not enthusiastic about playing the same songs live over and over, but their statement on it sounded like a huge stab in the back to their old fans. like, the main reason theyre ditching their old material is because "most of their fans came on board with colors." really, of all bands to try and appeal to the masses i never expected btbam to be one of them

an easy solution is to just throw in a few lesser known old tracks to appease long term fans, like "roboturner" or "arsonist" every once in a while since they rarely played those live to begin with.
