    I don't think any album that has this and, assumedly, The Doomed, Feathers and Hourglass will be anything close to being a bad album. At the worst, indicative of a directional shift I'm already well prepared for. These will work much better within album context than in isolation.

    It HAS been 14 years (!!) since their last album – 15 if you exclude eMotive, since it was all 99% covers (even Passive was a reworking of Vacant). They're due for a change of pace, if you ask me. Still sounds very much like APC to me, I don't get why so many are bitching about it being APC Lite (I disagree). Keep in mind that these are singles, too. Singles tend to be the most palatable songs on albums and are often chosen by the label rather than the band (who knows if that's the case here, though). There's bound to be other songs that people like more on the album once it's released/leaked.

    I listened to “The Doomed” and “Disillusioned” with headphones today while I was at the gym. These tracks are growing on me. I will say I can see why APC is releasing the weakest tracks as singles prior to the album while teasing the great tracks like “Feathers” and “Hourglass” live. I can honestly say I’d purchase the new album just to hear the studio versions of those two tracks.

    Disillusioned will very probably open the album.

    Just a feeling, but strong enough to leave it here so i can come back and brag that i was right

    The latest APC single is absolutely wonderful, even better than the last one although i still quite enjoyed "The Doomed". One was just more flashy and less substantial is all but nothing wrong with that. Place and time for everything.

    What we really needed was a song where MJK tells everyone they use their cell phones too much

    I think he touches on that in Disillusioned, actually. The line "Time to put the silicon obsession down, take a look around, find a way in the silence" makes me think of that, at least.

    Yeah, I saw that post yesterday and was guessing sarcasm so didn't reply to it.

    Oh yeah, the sarcasm was not lost on me. And I must say that while I do typically snap a few photos and take a few 10-30 second videos at concerts, I actually really appreciated not having a fucking sea of cell phone screens being held up in front of my line of sight, for once.

    Just a post confirming the album won’t be coming out this summer.

    ^^^ lol

    It is Maynard tweeting this though. He doesn’t really fuck around, unlike other members of his bands.

    True. He’s pretty straightforward when it comes to this stuff. And to be honest I love it when he shuts down fans tripping all over themselves to spread the newest rumor.

    Pfft, announcing big news "next week" on a Monday. Fucking tease.

    Also, they announced a show in Columbia, MO on May 16th. Last year I got to see them two weeks before my birthday, this year I'll get to see them two weeks after!

    Yeah, personally I am not a fan of this "announcing announcements" stuff. I hate it when movie trailers have teasers for trailers and bands say "big announcement next week", just save everyone the wait and announce the news.

    I miss the days where you would wake up to the news, not the announcement that news is coming "soon"

    Not me. I enjoy the anticipation.

    Besides I miss nothing from the past. The past is dead to me. A pox upon things from the past.

    Will they go the bigcorp business machine where you have to wait 3 months for the album when it's done? Or the independent route like NIN or Radiohead where you just release the darn thing?

    They’re signed with BMG so I’m assuming bigcorp. But they’ve also just kind of been announcing the singles and releasing them without forewarning so who knows.

    Billy repeatedly said in interviews that they are targeting Q2 release date. Looks like they are right on track with that.

    For real, I don't object to it if it's something like "stay tuned tomorrow morning". Once you start telling people "MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT IN TWO WEEKS" you've got a problem.

    Fortunately it’s just a week.

    That's just how marketing works though. Sometimes it's for no other reason than to build anticipation, but sometimes it's because there really are details that still haven't been finalized but you don't want to just sit around not saying anything at all.

    Those arena ticket sales = OOF!

    One would think they learned from last round of touring. Speaking of which, I wonder if there just adding some dates inbetween the festivals and that’s it.
