At least craigs voice has personality. Last dude was decent but super boring.

Brandon was a great vocalist and made the band bearable, while Craig is just awful.

They actually are good live. Owens was better live than on album. Or maybe it was just me. Regardless band should die. They've just over stayed any welcome they had

I liked the first album with Craig back then but I'd probably hate it if I got amnesia or something and heard it today
I never got the hate for him honestly, at least he has a unique sounding voice unlike the human saltine brandan ballsack or whatever

What's your problem with Brandon? The guy had a great voice, unlike the whiny Craig. I'd listen to boring(not) over whiny and annoying any day.

Chiodos has always been one of my favorite bands. Craig is an incredibly talented singer. People hate on him because he's a douchebag but that doesn't take away from what he can do musically. Tom Brady and Kobe Bryant are also douchebags.

Tom Brady and Kobe are also near the best at what they do whereas Craig is a singer whose whiny voice is a little different then other whiny voiced singers.

"Craig almost ruined The Sound Of Animals Fighting's live dvd."

TenSeconds is right here. The dude was tolerable on Lover... at times, but he couldn't sing in tune to save his life on the DVD, which was otherwise awesome.

Also, what's all this talk about craig being a douchebag? Are we associating him with Jonny Craig and just assuming they behave similarly? I get that a lot of people hate his voice but I'm not aware of anything he's done that's been douchey at all.

Craig has way more personality

And we all know a band without some personality is mediocre at best.

Equal Vision's marketing ploy to get people to pay attention to them again. To bad all the bands on the label now have nothing interesting to offer... What ever happened to 2005 Equal Vision??

Also, have you seen the announcement vids they posted about this? Hilarious.
