No scoot, they really really do. He does have a more technically impressive voice than palumbo though, and their live show is all about energy whereas Glassjaw play like they're bored. But I'm stoked for this, new tracks were great live

On the latest Metal Hammer Podcast Mr. Hill spoke about this album. He is a huge fan of the band and mentioned that this new record makes Fake History feel dull in comparison. Words like "game changer" were thrown around, and he compared this to Refused's and At the Drive In's classic albums. He also alluded to "album of the decade".

The man clearly hyperbolized a lot, but it's safe to say we'll get another great letlive. release!

Metal Hammer aren't exactly known for their integrity.

The preview track suggests that rapcore is back, ridiculous 90s nostalgia circle is now complete.

Fake History was no fluke. They had two mediocre albums before it and finally found their niche. I think they're locked in to release another fantastic album.

letlive as a band doesn't really sound like Glassjaw, but you can tell that letlive's singer tries to give off vibes similar to daryl's. but that's to be expected, really, daryl's one of the coolest fucking vocalists ever
