Sleepwalking > everything else they've ever done.

Hmm, even though I was a huge fan of The Hollow, this is definitely a step down for them. Also, the lyrics seem way too literal, something which is definitely not effective in this genre.

Not bad. Singer shows what he got in this one.. and even if it's "generic risecore", it's about the best fucking "generic risecore" there is (speaking of the band as a whole, not this song). 3.5

This song had a few moments for me, but I was really hoping they would do something diffident from 3:18 onwards, instead of placing another chorus.

Hoping this won't end up being Hollow 2.0

At first I thought the lyrics were meant for Rise... it felt a bit wierd viewing it on the Rise YouTube channel, haha. It's about their former label, Trustkill.

I think they tried to force out an album too soon.

Why did they have to abandon their southern sound? This was alright but they used to be unique. Does Rise force bands to sound like this?

Song is just okay, certainly no better than anything from the last album, worse than some of it. I really want this album to be good, so I hope the rest is better than this... they're clearly capable of putting out really fun songs. And yeah, their vocalist is pretty damn good.

Lol every one of those breakdowns were hugely underwhelming, and didn't add anything to the song besides the one with the "richer in the end" one which was super cliched. I think this is a good point in time to give up on this band.

Lyrics are terrible. Can't believe some of you think that these are good lyrics. The song is just one big generic mess. I liked The Hollow even those most of the songs sounded the same, but those songs were better than this.

Trustkill has fucked over so many people. My buddy in It Dies Today said that they withheld royalty checks for almost a year! He survived on part time bartending, a small clothing line, and merch sales... When they could afford to play a show. No per diem, no support from the label, no nothing. It's no surprise they went under.

KSK1, on their 'fanbridge' site, kids have asked them about their 'new' approach (a lot are pissed they dropped the southern sound) and Kellen (guitarist) has outright stated they want to be heavier and use chugs. They're not re-inventing the wheel, that's obvious and they know it. So why not be upfront about it?

I didn't like it at first, but it's growing on me. Third chorus kinda ruins the song, but the "...richer in the end" breakdown was neat. As for lyrics, they're ok. Some lines are better than others. *insert fake laugh*
