I've got mixed feelings. Man, I was so excited when I saw that they joined Silverstein's tour, but after hearing this song my excitement has faded away...

How many times is this band going to say they're finally disbanding for real, only to reunite?

I remember having a copy of Come Now Sleep for a while long time ago but never really got onboard with how the vocalist sounded. Vocals are def better on this but song is a little meh.

This is terrible. I definitely prefer everything post-Son I Loved You at Your Darkest, but even then they interplayed the vocals instead of just singing at the same time. Lyrics were pretty cringey too tbh...

It’s okay, the other two singles they put out were better. Curious to see what they put out still

I liked SILYAYD, but I loved every album after that. But this song is pretty good. Drums are fine, too. Lyrics are not bad. Just enjoy it, guys.

@Storm just add a 1 before every year, that way humanity would count civilized years. So we're now in year 12018. The youtube channel Kurzgesagt - In a Nutshell made a video on that a while ago.

Man, I just listened to the other two singles they put out and I'm super disappointed. What's up with the generic boring lyricism? I'm baffled.

Mineral, Envy, As Cities Burn.....wtf is going on lately. Yeah this song is hmmm its okay i suppose. It kinda feels like its missing both the emotional dread of SILYAYD and the indie etheral power of CNS and HOHW. Like it hovers through both of those but doesnt quite grasp it. Could be a grower but right now it just feels a little lost in its direction.

I didn’t want to talk trash to them on their social media on account of how much I love CNS and HOHW but this is so boring. TJ or whatever his name is from the first album is so bad. I can’t stand him

Lyrics are trash. Instrumental is great. Voice quality is also great. Chorus is the most laziest thing ever.

He was kind of blandly sweet but the lyrics on the two good albums were full of some of the best lyrics I’ve heard

Musically it’s a little more intense than suits these guys I think, but my only real issue is with the vocals. This dude coming back is worse than them staying broken up

Oh... yikes. ACB is dead. Long live ACB.

The AD, as opposed to CE, also made me cringe, but that's probably just my perspective. The lyricism and instrumentation is super tired though. Guess I'll just keep HOHW spinning.

As someone who barely listened to their first album probably 4 years ago, this was really good to me.

This is easily one of the worst things I've heard this year, and I loved their earlier work. These lyrics are absolute garbage.

I feel like this is one of those cursed magical token things where I wished really hard for ACB to get back together but then TJ came with and I’m supposed to learn some moral lesson

People on here are so hyperbolic sometimes.

The song is decent but not something I'd really come back to. SILYAYD is the only album I've loved from this band and I'm stoked to see them next week. I'd like if they went back to some heavier sounds (which this song flirts with a little bit) but my fingers aren't crossed. Most band reunions tend to be pretty lackluster when they put out new music.

thought it was pretty good / cody's vocals will always appeal to me and make lacklustre lyricism work / excited for a new album tbh / not expecting too much but hope they make some money
