was browsing channels and stoped at pbs to watch a live performance by these guys. Really cool, im not really into much of this style of music so is it weird to say this vaguely reminds of mewithoutyou? like a much more rock n roll version of them

Hmm, I never really considered them at all similar, but that's interesting. The only similarities I can think of are the stream-of-consciousness deliveries by the vocalists and the overt references to Christianity.

It's like The Gaslight Anthem if they had a corrupt upbringing. That average rating is way too low though.

That's my second favourite track behind Slight Discomfort, which has the best lyrics.

And you say you're much better
But I don't quite believe it
I saw the girls that you came with
I saw the guy that you left with
