Well, that started off as a nice post-hardcore tune, then immediately went to shit with the faux-tough guy vocals, followed up with the gayest singest voice ever. Yikes.

Clean vocals are by far the best part of this band.

Bands STILL play this style? Jeez, drop the autotunes and Joey Sturgis production and let this trend die. For the love of God

I'm from PK and I'm stoked to see more bands coming out of our scene. PK has a ton of great bands. Yeah, I know, Goats, I'm a gay... Whatever. Big ups to Poughkeepsie.

Really..does Victory Breed these kids in a lab or something...every time I see ''vicotry records signs''...I know exactly what the band sounds like.

^ I don't get it when people say that. Call them what you want, but Victory is pretty diverse. They have hardcore bands, death metal bands, rockabilly bands, black metal bands. Whether you like them or not is your call, but I always think it's weird when people say that. It's much more predictable to say you know what all Sumerian bands or Rise bands sound like.

This band is fcking sick and sings about real shit to relate to. Not only that but its made up of good people. So victory records can chalk up a win in their book because these guys are goin places. I'm a pk regular, watched this band grow from the first show they ever played with killscreen..so if ya don't like their sounds put something else on and sit In the corner. Let them chase their dream without bullshit trash talk that has nothing to back it up

anonymous

These dudes are from around me and i've known them all personally for years. A bunch of hardworking kids and I know they'll do big things. And they are sick live so those of you saying other wise can suck my ass. Ron likes sauce.

Wow victory really has the street team hitting it hard. All these sentimental, nice guy comments just get better and better. This band sucks fat, seeping urethra. The cleans kill every bit of credibility the intro laid out. Please vanflip first tour.

Sounds typical for something Victory would sign...these kids have potential, I hope they actually start being creative and original. It's just music that's been done a 100 times over...this style needs to die or mature, I'm so sick of it.

anonymous

this just goes to show how easy it is to get signed to Victory let alone most labels nowadays. Just look at their stats and posts, you would never expect that a label would be interested in a band that only has "27 people talking about this" or that only gets 10 likes on most of their statuses. Not to mention that they've been on two unsuccessful tours, having 0 draw other than in PK.

I'm surprised any label is interested in a band like this that barely anyone cares about.

the clean vocals are the only good thing about this band......
