Song is really average, but many bands have a pattern of releasing shit singles, so I'll reserve complete judgment until the album is released.

Still, despite that, I don't think the album is going to be great.

I don't understand why all the hate for this band. So many other popular bands around here make the same album over and over and get praised while others try to experiment and get a shit load of hate for trying to do something different(Opeth, ).

I dig the new song and while the lyrics are not all that different from a lot of their previous work, I can appreciate the lyrics being positive and uplifting, espcially since they are a Chrisitian band.

"I don't understand why all the hate for this band. So many other popular bands around here make the same album over and over and get praised while others try to experiment and get a shit load of hate for trying to do something different(Opeth, ). "

There's a big difference here. Now, before you assume I don't like this band, I do. I still listen to them fairly frequently and they're one of the few metalcore bands I still do so with. That being said, they've always had a generic sound, they just pull it off really well, but now the sound has worn itself out. This song was boring because I've heard the same song from them many times. Other bands can make the same album because their sound is probably still fresher without a million other bands trying the same exact sound. Bands that experiment get a shit load of hate when their experiment sounds like shit.

The short version: If it's boring or sounds bad, we're not going to like it, regardless of other factors.

I'm a pretty huge fanboy for this band and I didn't like this song, what is up with those vocals? More growling, less talking out of rhythm. Music was good but not as good as Constellations or even Leveler. Song could have done without the breakdown too. Oh well, at least TDWP and Texas In July have new material to copy

I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and reserve judgement until the album drops; it does appear, however, that ABR have become adverse to taking a risk. Oh well, as long as it has a standout track or two like Poor Millionaire i'll be satisfied.

I agree that this song is just more of the same, but the rest of the album is likely to be much more progressive. If not, everything they've been saying about this album is a bunch of bullshit. From their bio:

"They say the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. If true, then in many ways the genre of metalcore has become the equivalent of insanity - hundreds of bands repackaging the same structures, same guitar riffs and scream-sing choruses to the same effect.

To borrow a popular 90’s motivational phrase, AUGUST BURNS RED would like to 'stop the insanity.'

The band’s latest album, Rescue & Restore, is a colossal effort which turns a critical eye to the oft-maligned genre, leading by example to prove that bands can still find exciting new ways to expand the genre without simply falling into repetitive trappings."

Maybe this song is intended to draw in the average metalcore fan, and the diehard ABR fans that love the sound that has made them famous.

Like someone before me said, there's nothing wrong with positive lyrics; it's just that these are so pedestrian that the sentiment comes off as phony. Not to mention the delivery. Screaming "now" over a heavy riff has been tacky since before nu-metal.

"Messengers" is the greatest record they've ever done, no question. Maybe "Meddler" is a best song and I know it's coming from "Constellatons" but "Messengers" is the most consistent one : "The truth of a liar", "Backburner", "Composure" and "Redemption" are songs that they always play live in every set. And I can't forget about my personal favourite "The blinding light".
