Yeah I'm confused, that LP has been done for some time now. Everyone has been expecting a fall release. Weird.

@flug no not really but it's been a slow news day so hey

its all predictable metal/BM albums. Also Darius I tend to find that people who hate their first couple albums might not hate Rooms of the House, probably not your thing but could potentially change your opinion

it's more mellow and not nearly as whiny and annoying as some of their early stuff. It's the only thing I really still listen to from them

Still the only album I dig from these guys so I'll have to give this a shot when it comes out.

From what I read, they didn't do any new performances for this one, they just remastered the songs to get them sounding how they'd like them to sound now. Hopefully that means we'll get an album at some point this year or early next year, who knows?

"The album was originally self-produced, but the new version features re-amped guitars by Will Yip (who also produced 2014’s Rooms of the House and is producing the upcoming La Dispute album), a new mix by Dave Schiffman (who’s worked with PUP, Thrice, Alanis Morissette, and more), and remastering by Emily Lazar. The first taste of this new version is “The Castle Builders,” and you can really hear a difference compared to the original sound of Somewhere at the Bottom. The mix sounds more spacious, and the guitars sound cleaner and warmer, much closer to the vibe of Rooms of the House than to the crunchy sound of Somewhere at the Bottom" - brooklynvegan

Rooms is so boring bro. So boring. Can’t even touch the 2 that came before it.

There's actually a lot of good stuff going on there. Instrumentally, lyrically, and production. You just have to be in the mood for it, which is clearly a different mood than their first 2 would require. Woman (reading) and Woman (mirror) are some of the best tracks they've ever written. And if you still want something loud and upbeat, there's Hudsonville and Stay Happy There

Every instrument definitely sounds more impactful, but I feel that there is too much bass in the mix.

This sounds like hot garbage. It’s the same god awful bass heavy, muddied mix that just about ruined wildlife. Idk what they were thinking here.

This band has been dead to me since they opened for thrice with all the energy of a turtle jerking off. And this is coming from someone who used to go apeshit for LD shows.

Rooms is boring trash too. Whoever equated LD now to mumble rap with instruments is pretty much spot on. What a disappointment this band became.

I've been here since 2009. My love for BVB's been pretty apparent since people started knowing who I was in 2011.

Holy shit, this mix is awful. Such a damn shame, this band used to my favourite but every release since Somewhere at the Bottom has been losing energy. I've seen them a few times over the last decade and it's been the same decline there... such a disappointment for me.
