one great album and a bunch of shit
butler is a diva
Fake History and Blackest Beautiful are great, but after the mess that was Devil, this doesn't surprise me. Hopefully Butler can get involved with something heavier and more compelling in the near future. Dude has a killer voice
Don't they have 4 albums tho?
Digging: Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas - Feeling of Unity
Understandable, last album was trash, don't think the fans even cared anymore
and nothing of value was lost.
blackest beautiful was ok but has perhaps the worst production of all time
Fake History and Blackest Beautiful were pretty good, but that last album was terrible
"divergence of views" is band slang for "we really, really don't like each other."

Fake History is a classic, but If I'm The Devil was such a disappointment this isn't surprising in the slightest.
fake history was decent, nothing groundbreaking. they churned out more shitty music than good music. still, i've heard worse glassjaw imitators.
they were really only good when they were ripping glassjaw off anyways
I just got into these guys wtf
Their debut was okay, Fake History was awesome, everything else was kind of awful.
it's a shame, they had a ton of potential
"they were really only good when they were ripping glassjaw off anyways"
You forgot Refused too
Honestly after that abortion of a last record, this was for the best.
Digging: Propagandhi - Victory Lap
I want pop album from Butler, dude has sick hooks
Digging: Grinning Death's Head - Blood War
Last album sucked some major ass, and Blackest Beautiful wasn't amazing. Don't really care.
I really didn't think Devil was that bad at all, and this makes me soooooooper sad
Maybe Butler will go on to make that soulful rnb/pop record he was always born to make.
Digging: FERN - FERN
FH dropped from a 4.0 to 2.0 for me. It's still their best by far though
Digging: Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds of Fire
Damn, was hoping to catch 'em live at some point
Well Butler still has his beard care range.
Devil was awful, they sounded like a watered down Linkin Park on that thing.
The Auto-Tune-Itis finally got to them.
really really bad band. cya
Digging: Gucci Mane - Mr. Davis
Fake History was phenomenal even if that ended up being lightning in a bottle with these guys
Digging: Glocca Morra - Just Married
Fake History is still a fucking jam. Everything after that was pretty meh.
Digging: August Burns Red - Phantom Anthem
What the fuck
Every Time I Die gonna outlive everyone that ever played a breakdown
About time. Fake History was the only good thing to come out of them and that was years ago
"Every Time I Die gonna outlive everyone that ever played a breakdown"
Norma Jean and Converge have been around longer tho
fake history wasnt good
"Norma Jean and Converge have been around longer tho"
Doesn't mean they won't be outlived.
integrity's got to 30 years
I hope they both outlive ETID tbh
Though you could make a case that Norma Jean doesn't count since none of the original members are in the band
Fake History was the dopest shit.
This makes me sad. Fake History and The Blackest beautiful were amazing. I really hope Jason continues doing music
Digging: Circa Survive - The Amulet
tbb was utter tripe actually
well, that is kinda shitty
"divergence of views"
Nope, I can't make that not sound pretentious.
Fake History was phenomenal even if that ended up being lightning in a bottle with these guys 
FH is still pretty great. Blackest Beautiful had a few really great songs and a lot of mediocre ones, all marred by awful production.
Didn't even bother listening to their newest album after I heard the shitty single. Still kind of a bummer though.
last album blew but its still sad to see. hoped theyd have been able to pull themselves up from their last album and make something on the level of their other two but it looks like thats not happening rip
Digging: Placebo - Meds
I was pretty big into this band for a while but I can't muster up much feeling about this at this point.
wow, this band was pretty cool. I only got to see half of their set when I saw them at a concert. They killed it
Does this mean they don't LL.ove each other anymore?
Really liked all of their albums. Everyone thought the most recent one was trash but I loved it. Foreign Cab Rides is the best song they've ever written IMO. Worst album tho. Still good but the worst.
band was shit no regrets
Digging: Emma Ruth Rundle - Marked For Death
First time I find a band on wikipedia that plays "art punk".
You're not going to reach fugazi standards that easily
Someone plug that singer into a band with better writers. Dudes got tons of talent, just not writing talent.
I thought it was an average nu-metal band...
''First time I find a band on wikipedia that plays "art punk"
Didn't they call themselves soulpunx or something lmao. Anyway, saw these guys about a year ago and they put on a great performance, sadly most of the tracks they played were from TBB.
Digging: II II II (UK) - Frequency Illusion
Always been a minor fan and that last album sucked chode, didn't see this coming. Rip I guess.
I saw them in October at a festival and the singer was hilarious running around throwing the mic and crawling on the floor. Glad I caught them.
ETID & Converge>everyone
"Someone plug that singer into a band with better writers. Dudes got tons of talent, just not writing talent."
Lol, guarantee to you that Butler was the main song writer.
You guys are heavily overrating Fake History. It was good, but come on guys, its not phenomenal.
Digging: Counterparts - You're Not You Anymore
fake history is like the soundtrack to a glassjaw biopic where they couldn't afford the rights to actually use glassjaw's music.
Fake History was not a 4.1 like the average said it was but it was still enjoyable
hey man the fake history rerelease was my shit like 2 years ago idk what you're talking about
Digging: Counterparts - You're Not You Anymore
Would've thought this was a tragedy like 4 years ago, now it's whatever.
Can't imagine it's all fun and games living/working with that psycho. They had one good album, nothing of value lost.
Was Jason a psycho off stage??
how embarrassing is this
lol You can feel the tears on the keyboard. Also, there was NEVER anything remotely art punk about this band.
fake history will always be a gem. i dont really care about this, thats the only release of those that matters anyway
Fake History is amazing, Blackest would have been a solid release if the production wasn't ass cancer. Devil was absolute shit.
I always got the impression that Jason was probably hard to work with.
lol I just started getting into these guys. Will probably just leave it at Fake History because the newest album is bad and Blackest Beautiful has stupid production.
blackest beautiful grew on me so hard
Butler has pipes, needs a new band asap.
glad i got to see them before the blackest beautiful.. they kicked ass live. but yeah don't really care much anymore
Digging: Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center - Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center
Fake history was legit one of my favourite albums of the last decade, blackest beautiful was neat too - didnt mind the production as much as others - devil was seriously terrible. If that is what they planned on dishing up in the future then their break up is probably for the best.
Digging: King Krule - The OOZ
letlive, and let die
Digging: Movements - Feel Something
If I'm the devil was their worst album without a doubt but it's still given too much shit, it's not THAT bad. Admittedly who you are not and another offensive song were truly terrible, but Nu romantics is easily one of the best letlive songs. Solid 3
Fake History was their best album without a doubt but it's still given too much credit, it's not THAT good.
damn where will i get my glassjaw ripoff now
Fuck. Fake History is in my top 10 albums of all time... At least I saw them live three times...
@killerK1 Jacobi Wichita? Lower Definition? :^) Both do it better than these guys did.
Devil grew on me. It's still not great but it has it's songs. Nu Romantics is awesome and I really see no reason why any fan of their previous two could actually dislike that song.
I never understood the hype about this band, sounds like all their music is written by 13 year olds
After two fantastic albums, a good but watered down album, they end just like that. This really fucking sucks. One of the best bands in the genre even if their last was a letdown. Hope they all go on to make fantastic music though.
Digging: Tyson Motsenbocker - Almira
Saw these support Enter Shikari, they were good live. Fake History was great, rest meh
Awful band anyway
Digging: Talk Talk - Laughing Stock
"I never understood the hype about this band, sounds like all their music is written by 13 year olds"
Probably because their music was geared towards 13 year olds kids who have never heard of Glassjaw.
Also, for the people wanting Butler in a new band, I guarantee you that band will end up just as bad as Letlive. Dude may have pipes but his song writing ability is bollocks.
I definitely don't trust him to write great music outside of this band. Dude wants to go popstar/ pop R&B so bad. I echo that everything before and after Fake History is pretty insubstantial.
"Probably because their music was geared towards 13 year olds kids who have never heard of Glassjaw."
letlive blew/still blows glassjaw out of the water. trash ass band
lol sure thing guy 👍
lol sure thing guy 👍 
"letlive blew/still blows" 
you can sure thing guy me all you want, but that doesn't change the fact that glassjaw is useless
fake history was an incredible album but they just couldn't make the magic happen again after that. Glad I saw them live when I did one of the best shows I've ever seen.
Letlive owe their entire sound to Glassjaw and sometimes Refused dude. And seeing as you haven't listened to much Glassjaw, you wouldn't know that.
i think he's one of the aforementioned 13 year olds
"Letlive owe their entire sound to Glassjaw and sometimes Refused dude. And seeing as you haven't listened to much Glassjaw, you wouldn't know that."
influence doesn't equal good bucko
also I've listened to their discog times over so yea, there's that
and yea, when I was 13 I probably would've loved glassjaw. I also loved limp bizkit and papa roach at the time as well
nice to know you've always had terrible taste in music i guess
lol bucko. This is like liking chocolate cake but somehow not liking the flavor chocolate itself.
The Blackest Beautiful was so goood!!!!!!!!
"nice to know you've always had terrible taste in music i guess"
bro check yr 5's, yr 15 and just stumbled on internet music for the first time. cut copy paste taste ass, waste of space
Bruh, turning on roast rhyme mode in the comments isn't going to stop your opinion from being crazy. lol Like, how do you 1. Compare liking Glassjaw to liking Limp Bizkit and Papa Roach and 2. somehow like Letlive but not Glassjaw at all. OKAY. Ole Kodak Black and Migos 5'in ass.
aww thx for stopping by my profile babe. next time leave a comment, would ya?
"Ole Kodak Black and Migos 5'in ass."
straight classics, and if you can't admit that you're a PUSSY
i'm rock hard right now.
lol Both are strictly barless. Like, you gotta come to terms with the fact that you prefer simple ass music.
you have 1780)7668 bob dylan/old bowie albums 5'd and yr gonna talk about people liking simple music lmao
Why does this have over 100 comments?
pantera 4.5'd I'm just above you in absolutely every manner tbh
But you 5'd a Front Bottoms album! A FRONT BOTTOMS ALBUMMM! I can't.
" Like, you gotta come to terms with the fact that you prefer simple ass music."
holy shit this ridiculous holier-than-thou mindset needs to stop
Not gonna say that it was good thing I said, but you gotta admit we're equally in poor taste Ryus, c'mon.
"But you 5'd a Front Bottoms album! A FRONT BOTTOMS ALBUMMM! I can't."
still more complex and conceptually sound than bob fucking dylan
"Not gonna say that it was good thing I said, but you gotta admit we're equally in poor taste Ryus, c'mon."
for sure. no one's lookin good in this argument
"still more complex and conceptually sound than bob fucking dylan"
That's where we conclude our business. Good talk, though, I mean it.
(nothing to see here)
feels like he was losing his voice in the last one
Haven't done shit since Fake History so imo, whatever.
Loooong time coming
Digging: Protomartyr - Relatives In Descent
blackest beautiful is better than fake history and the production thing was way overblown.
that said, last album was ass and vocal dude seems like a pretentious twat, so this is fine.
also, never really saw how this band was anything like glassjaw other than the "literally stealing glassjaw lyrics" thing. letlive's music is waaaay too glossy, bordering on slightly more soulful risecore.
The Blackest Beautiful and Fake History were great albums but this band seemed to be heading down pretentious road. Glad they cut it out before then.
Digging: The Black Dahlia Murder - Nightbringers
I remember reading a comment when The Blackest Beautiful was coming out saying that it was going to be 'The Shape of Punk to Come of this generation' and my thought was just 'whoa, they're a decent band but they aren't that good'.
I enjoyed Fake History, and still think it's a decent album, but I think it (as well as Letlive. as a whole) was incredibly overhyped. I don't really remember anything from Blackest Beautiful other than Banshee, and I only got a few tracks into their last album before turning it off. I'm not too heartbroken about this
funny, like 6 years ago almost everyone on this site was worshiping this band
Good. Atrocious band
When people are happy about a band breaking up, especially one that doesn't get radio play, that's a real shitty attitude to have. If you don't like a band, don't fuckin listen to them and get over it.
so ur sayin if they were famous it would be ok? wot????
Band died when their last album came out
Digging: Trivium - The Sin and the Sentence
Band died when fake history came out.
They had a good album idk why people liked them so much. Seemed like a band yall would hate
Everyone hates every band that ends up in the news section. You all are fucking assholes /thread
Devil actually wasn't a terrible album, but there was too much mediocrity among the legitimately good songs. Would have been so much better as a simple EP with 4-5 of the songs
Youre a pussy
you're one to talk
milliondead basically just reinforcing that he's the whitest-ass user on sputnikmusic.com itt
boy name millionsdead I mean it's kinda self explanatory
Really bummed about this. Fake History was outstanding and I really loved The Blackest Beautiful upon release (it hasn't aged as well) whereas Devil was a major disappointment.
I really hope we se Butler do something new soon -- dude kills it.
