If he tells the story of how a shitty band managed to put out such a good EP about zombies, count me in.

Shouldn't the book have come out around the same time as the album? And I don't think his lyrics are deep enough to warrant a book about them

Who is this for? Most of The Devil Wears Prada's fanbase are too young to read anyway.

Actually dead throne wasnt really god driven. It was more emotional, he wrote a lot of dead throne after his main bitch dropped his ass. This book is probably filled with more man pain than god.

"GOD...and the book is done"

Ancas + 20.

I did an interview with Mike in 2011. Every question I asked, from his musical inspirations to defining moments as a member of TDWP, was answered with "WELL GOD X and GOD Y." I just wanted to know what bands he listened to growing up, and apparently God played in the only band he's ever listened to.

Dude was a douche.

No such thing as too young to read. Kids can read and write at the age of 4 if they try. So, actually, maybe 1, 2 and 3 is too young to read.

It was a phone interview. Shit, I dunno, I've met, talked with, or interviewed various members of switchfoot, underoath, the chariot, Norma jean, mewithoutyou... Fuck, even I the breather was easier to elicit answers from. All good dudes in the aforementioned acts and were happy to talk music except Hrancia. Fuck him.

Didn't his original fanbase grew up and became hipsters already?

Dead Throne actually has some rather deep lyrics. In the same vein as Vheissu, it dives into the metaphysical issues of religion/the absurdity of life without God.

I believe he went for a more... personal/subjective approach on this one. Anyway, i like Mike very much. He seems like a level headed dude. The whole band actually.

And im not christian or anything. But i do support that bands like TDWP and For Today and such go out and speak up for what they believe. As long as people are tolerant on those issues, its alright for anyone to believe in whatever. My pov.
