Digging: Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) - You Will Eventually Be Forgotten
Every band says every record will be x better than x and more x than x and will definitely have the most x
The Ghost Inside were pretty classy. Just said "expect another melodic hardcore record.
But yeah, fucking stoked for this.
Awful trailer. Like, spectacularly crappy
my mind is made up mymindismadeup mymindismadeupmymindismadeup troubletrouble
stoked stoked stoked stoked stoked stoked
my expectations are probably too high
so stoked for this
Being from Pa, so many of my friends love these guys but I just can't get into them.
I'm getting an amazing vibe from this album, trailer is amazing.
Trailer may have been a little much but sounds like the vocals have improved quite a bit judging by
the short clip. Album should be good
i mean yeah it definitely comes off slightly pretentious for a pop punk band but im sure the album will rule and im stoked
I'm a little concerned, cos it was the themes of depression that made me connect in the first place
beats by dre, siqq
"see people say the greatest generation has come and gone but they're
wrong. they haven't seen what we're capable of"
still excited, but this trailer is so fucking over the top.
Digging: Tokyo Police Club - A Lesson in Crime
Digging: How to Dress Well - What Is This Heart?
I kind of like how ridiculous this trailer is.
Super pumped for this based on the last 30 seconds or so of music
I'm feeling the 5 already
This will be so awesome.
Album will rule.
Digging: Rise Against - The Black Market
I'd really been hoping the title was being ironic, but it seems it isn't, which makes me sad.
cheesy as fuck trailer. still love this band though
depressed band writes album about what to do after depression
sputnik gets mad
that clip at the end sounds superb
Digging: Jason Lancaster - As You Are
hella jazzed about this
Can't wait to hear a new song about stinking it up in a Philly basement.
not a fan of the album title
Digging: The Avalanches - Since I Left You
seems promising, hopefully they can deliver
For some reason, there is no doubt in my mind that they will deliver on every ridiculous claim they made in that video. I heard someone say once that Suburbia was their Deja Entendu, so maybe this will be their Devil and God?
andcas be honest. If you had never heard of them before and saw this trailer, would you not find it pretentious?
it's cool that they're so invested in their music, but really, wouldn't "we have a new album coming out" suffice?
Regardless of if andcas knew them or not, it's overwhelmingly ignorant to label them pretentious knowing what they've done in the past, are you saying they're not capable of delivering something that outstanding?
This band better than The Story So Far? I think they might be.
They're arguably better than TSSF, instrumentally they're on par with one-another, but lyrically TWY is better by a huge margin.
I like TWY more
I love them both
but yeah TWY lyrics are just so far beyond other pop punk bands
Has andcas mentioned how nice they are yet? Saw bassist in sa try to kick a kid then threw a pick at him and flicked him off. Like a 15 yo kid. Andcas ignant twat
So stoked for this
"can a band put extra emphasis on how much their music means to them without someone labeling them pretentious or is that just not possible?"
as someone who really liked this trailer, no. but it's only pretentious if they don't deliver.
also let's not compare this to Devil and God, my expectations are already sky high and if this album is anything less than a 4.5 i will be kind of crushed.
Tbh if i wanted music with some cliche pseudo intellectual analysis of life i would listen to folk-punk, not pop-punk #eliminatepoppunk
This is so inspirational oh my jesus.
Digging: Sunwolf - Beholden To Nothing And No One
band is cool, album will be awesome, album trailers are stupid, thread is stupid
The problem isn't that they're being arrogant or too excited by their own music. Theres nothing really wrong with most of the sentiments in that video, the problem is more the way the thing was edited. Classic art-student doco style, which is an irritating as fuck style.
I enjoy The Wonder Years. More looking forward to the album (although it will more than likely be enjoyable) falling short of everyone's sky-high expectations and ripping a black hole in the heart of Sputnik.
