Always good to hear new music

"plus members of The Bouncing Souls..." The Bouncing Souls aren't established enough as a band to have their members' names listed?

I feel like I "wasted time" reading this... also not adding music to the press release tells me they want to hype the band before anyone hears it.

"also not adding music to the press release tells me they want to hype the band before anyone hears it." Or you still haven't figured out how B9's release rollout process works after like, 12 years.

So Ari The jerk likes/loves hardcore again. fckin' phony who was trying to be the next Fall Out Boy with the last Lifetime album. Ex-Minor Threat yeah ok hey Brian why didn't you use that when you were in Junkyard 1989-91? Oh wait the word "hardcore" was a dirty word to you back then.

anonymous 5/24/2018 11:51:00 PM

Remember when Todd youth was "glam rock" but now has to play hardcore again to make $200 towards child support? Same with Brian


anonymous 5/25/2018 6:54:25 AM

"anonymous1 day ago "plus members of The Bouncing Souls..." The Bouncing Souls aren't established enough as a band to have their members' names listed?" no one outside of NJ has ever given a shit about bouncing souls

Victims of male pattern baldness, tofrutti/tofurkey lovers, and dudes in dad jeans are super stoked for this.


anonymous 5/26/2018 7:20:45 AM

anonymous15 hours ago ^^ So false it's painful to read. Stay in your basement, virgin. ^^ wears ivy caps, nurses one single shitty IPA and then claims to be "fcked up", and frequents the same bar in which you have never gotten a single number ever = the prototypical Bouncing Souls fan the rest of the world never gave a shit fgt


anonymous 5/27/2018 10:16:37 AM

^^ Somehow even more painful to read than the first post. Just give it up dummy.


anonymous 5/29/2018 8:49:40 AM

"tattoos are for normies at this point" Pretty much. It's more weird for someone to *not* have a tattoo these days.
