I find it funny that the same thing happened to Attack Attack! and Of Mice & Men with this whole clean vocals issue.

I don't like this band and now I like them less. I like how all these bands just decide their vocalists can start doing cleans. A little studio magic and they're all set. Dude's a douche anyway.

He's a good screamer and he has a very different sounding voice but his range really isn't too good. He basically has that one screechy pitch and never really tries to stray too far from it.

I'll give him that I suppose. The scream at the beginning of Westbound And Down is fairly impressive.

@InnocentShadow if he can't do cleans live then he shouldn't do them in the studio.

Saw them front row at Warped last year, the OG Loko breakdown with the hard in the paint sample was one of the most epic things ever.

^ This will probably suck because Austin is a douche bag and probably lived off of Shay's vocals/lyrics. He could work on his singing and work everything out but I doubt he will. The Flood was a needle in haystack.

I didn't think the of mice and men album was that great but I can't deny his screams are freaking amazing. Dickwad or not, amazing screamer.

Eh. He does have a pretty unique scream, whether you consider it good or not, and his singing in that one song was decent. Though i don't see how he'll be able to do it live since it seems like he runs out of stamina frequently.
