Kinda figured that they were just going to do an entire album at some point. Should be pretty cool.

I didn't really want this to happen despite how much I enjoy this band. I can't help but feel the effect of the album will wear off halfway through it. Especially with them putting already released material on it. Not to mention Oct 9 is nowhere near Christmas or the "holidays"

Honestly I think it will rule but if it postpones the release of an actual new album I'm gonna be bummed.

Love the band, but I've always felt these Christmas themed albums were lame.

"Quit bitching"
Haha I'm just nervous from all the anticipation I guess. If their compositions are anything like Little Drummer Boy or O Come O Come Emmanuel it will certainly rule

The link in the article messes up because the last word "hill" has a space in it.

Good call, but when I go to the edit screen it doesn't show a space there which is strange.

Band is good and all but that's a pretty dumb idea. Will probably end up listening though.

I don't think anybody wants this as much as a new album, but it will do. Honestly not expecting new material for a while considering the vibes they have been giving off. I've read in interviews that they have been struggling to progress their sound, and I don't think ABR want to make the same record twice.

Dashing through the snow
On a one-chord open chug,
Over the fields we go,
Thrashing all the way
chug! chug! chug!
Sweeps and harmonics ring,
Making breakdowns tight,
Oh what fun it is to laugh and sing
A metalcore song tonight

I have honestly never seen the appeal of ABR, but their holiday songs were always a neat idea. Hope the kids dig it.

This is going to be utterly awesome. It'll be a day one purchase for me...but the thing is, I won't even listen to it until Thanksgiving/afterwards.

I did see a comment earlier that mentioned the questionability on the October 9th release date. Many artists release their holiday albums early on. Harry Connick Jr. released his "What a Night!" Christmas album early on, and Michael Buble did as well.

They've made the same album four times, why not just go for five?
