absolutely terrible

They pay other musicians to write their music for them usually, so at least in this case they're being open about performing someone else's music.

this made me sad

anonymous 10/27/2017 11:39:33 AM

Literally no one asked for this

anonymous 10/27/2017 11:50:08 AM

So basically they are a cover band. They were not inspired enough to write their own songs, only cover the songs of other bands. Like 13 year olds. Cool news, webby.

An album of "inspiring" covers and these shit birds did not record a Downswing cover? fck The Color Morale.

^ shut up gay loser. down swing posts aren't funny or witty

Picked the worst song by every band. Nice work guys.

anonymous 10/27/2017 1:12:12 PM

The color of money is my favorite hardcore beat. Shout out to no-one in FSU. Emmure should be on this.

the only one that sounds good is Misery Signals actually

Chi_Stake 10/27/2017 7:04:25 PM

I even tried to give it a chance but every song is a less capable version of the original.

rabbit_belt 10/27/2017 8:10:17 PM

epic fail. why cover songs that aren't even that old and that come from the same scene and style as your own band. seems completely pointless. misery signals cover is good but like, it sounds just like the original. not exactly the point of a good, classic cover if you ask me.

Really bad. This band will forever be worth 50 people at chain reaction on a Friday night

anonymous 10/28/2017 5:54:10 AM

lol thrice, Coldplay and jimmy eat world are not the same scene as color morale and are a decade earlier at least. This band will forever be attached to the early 2010s electronicore group. People don't forget

Lyme disease is nothing. How about you carry Sheetrock every day for 10 years and see what kind of chronic back pain you have. Is your Lyme disease bullshit gonna cause you to start getting legit oxys from the dr? You gonna fruitlessly visit chiropractors for years? Your Lyme disease ain't nothing compared to what real men deal with every day

anonymous 10/28/2017 12:03:40 PM

Toby Morse is a try hard scenester

first 3 songs really didn't need to be covered, so unnecessary. shit band hasn't been listenable since their 2nd album

anonymous 10/29/2017 8:15:30 AM

This c-mdump of band has no right covering CBK

anonymous 10/29/2017 9:59:41 AM

The fck? They covered bands in the exact same style as the original... is this a bar band demo that they are distributing or what? I bet they are gonna start playing at breweries all over the place now.

anonymous 10/29/2017 10:04:12 AM

You guys have been tricked. This is not a real release. This is actually a bootleg compilation album posted on Spotify by "zhang yifen" that just uses the originals except for the Coldplay cover. That one is a legit cover done by Thrice from 2007.

anonymous 10/30/2017 2:14:15 PM

The only bands to inspire these chunks are Meat Loaf and Cake.

Kids who wear toms and abercrombie are stoked
