love the artwork but I'm pretty biased

also, anthony green tweeted about him doing guest vocals on this album while calling the song he contributed to "one of the best the band has written"

artwork reminds me of Jar by daylight

obviously not by the artwork specifically but by the way it has distorted color with an image behind it

I saw this band live with Such Gold and Polar Bear Club, they were ridiculously boring.

Ironically I have been looping separation a lot lately, such a good emotional album about the pains of romance and growing up. Stonehands, quake, defeat the low, ect are perfect

lol of course you would be

Hope this is better than Separation. That album is hit or miss for me. Miss most of the time. Band can be repetitive and boring, but they do have their moments.

it's so strange how different the views are on their live show. i personally love it and know a lot of people that love it (calling them the best live band ever)

i don't know what splits it tho

They just put on a horrible show and sound dull. The vocalist can't play guitar for shit and listening to their records, you'd never even know they had three guitarists. Every time he isn't playing, which is often, he tries to pretend that he is tuning his guitar so he looks like he's doing something. The rest of them are like lifeless corpses. I swear I almost went into a coma watching them. I have literally never heard a single good thing about their live performance from anyone except for on Sputnik.

Such Gold were awesome, they got the crowd going, everybody was moving around and stuff. I didn't
know their music but they were enjoyable. Balance and Composure came out and just stood there, didn't
move, didn't do anything interesting. The songs had no energy or any sort of atmosphere and inbetween
them the singer just talked about how sad he was that the tour was over. I literally sat on the floor
for half of their set. Polar Bear Club came out and finally brought back some of the energy from Such
Gold but B&C did a good job killing any momentum going into PBC's set. It's a shame, because a few of
the songs I've heard by B&C were pretty decent and I was looking forward to seeing how they would be
live. I'll check out the new one I guess, if you're all saying it's so much better
