In other news, we're also going to be streaming the debut album by Art by Numbers a week before release. It's the band that the guys in The Human Abstract are involved with. They're like a Protest the Hero meets Coheed & Cambria hybrid.

Curious as to what Matt Skiba and The Sekrets is and what they sound like.

Willie

It's the side project from the singer of Alkaline Trio that features AFI bassist Hunter Burgan and current touring drummer for My Chemical Romance Jarrod Alexander. To me, it basically sounds like Alkaline Trio with more of an alt. rock vibe. I like it more than most the Alkaline Trio stuff that I've heard.

Thanks for that. Now go participate. All you have to do is e-mail a single sentence (I think).

"Curious as to what Matt Skiba and The Sekrets is and what they sound like."

Hammer magazine made them out to be some kind of darker sounding, I think the term goth was used, group. However Willie's analysis is far more realistic imo.

Art By Numbers, eh? Might be nice.

Gonna check out that new John 5.

The lack of an "Exister" leak one week before release is slightly baffling.

^I heard a little bit of that just today. Sounded really weird. Not like the usual Infected Mushroom crap.

Infected Mushroom aren't crap, unless you're talking about "Eviliution" or "U R So Fucked" :P

Both of those are on this album if I recall
