This is great. Pretty much what I was expecting this to be like. "Picture of a Tree That Doesn't Look Okay", "Gig Life", "Getting Sodas" and "Low Light Assembly" are especially good. Definitely the best songs they've put out since the Formlessness EP back in 2010.

So I just want to say keep in mind that this is going to be put up by the band for free/donation on their Bandcamp on the official release date (June 16 or whatever?). Derrick just got drunk and posted a rant about the shit he's getting for letting this leak and he announced it's gonna be free.

I'll hold out till it's on their personal bandcamp and pay the price the label's offering it for then. That way the band can get the money I was close to paying now anyway.

i remember reading something about their 'main' vocalist being ill or something but i still hear him on this. idk it was very unclear.

He was quite ill for a long time, but as I understand it that had nothing to do with him leaving...he was either kicked out or left, but whatever the case I've heard it wasn't on good terms.

yeah you were wrong. all of them already knew about this band.

split with deer leap is better (mainly coz deer leap is better) but this record is better than any of their other shit i think. interesting tumblr rant.

"Shitty Greg - guitar, vocals, piano, synthesizer"

based on this and that tumblr rant i would hazard a guess that he is no longer in the band.

^Their ex-lead singer was Tom Diaz who also played synths/acoustic guitar and I'm pretty sure he does all the lead vox on this album. He left after the Deer Leap split and Dave took over.

"Shitty Greg" is Greg Horbal, one of their longtime guitarists (who is still in the band) and they really enjoy giving him shit publicly for some reason. Hell, their Facebook band description is even "we are an atmospheric emo / indie rock band from Willimantic, CT. Greg is supposed to get hot dogs but he never does."

Sooooo sweet. Kinda weird that Tom sang on the whole album but left the band, now David F Bello performs with them as lead.
Heartbeat In The Brain, Picture of a Tree, Gig Life, and Getting Sodas are all so fucking ace. The vinyl variants all sound awesome too, I ordered the clear/green smoke, can't wait to get it.
And they're finally coming near buffalo this week to Rochester, I'm so pumped.
