    Music, a steady riot in my soul. Supporter

    I’ve been waiting on this one for a while. Glad to have the official version now. Feels like a message a lot of people could use right now.

    I like the song.

    What is the misogynistic song the tweet above references in that thread?

    Yeah he admits to hating that song and feeling embarrassed and ashamed of the lyrics, and I'm gonna give the benefit of the doubt on that song. Not heard about the other stuff but it sounds grim...
     
  8. admits to it being problematic, on stage, and goes ahead and plays it anyway because it's part of the album that night was meant to be showcasing, like wyd Frank?

    LoLT is immature; calling it misogynistic conflates frustration for entitlement. I'm glad he's a bit embarrassed by the song in retrospect, but attacking him for not cutting it from an album show really colors its content (and his intent) a shade too dark for my tastes.

    Can't speak to the rest of the Twitter thread because it's either too vague or strikes me as a personal spat.

    New song is low-key beautiful.

    Craig/Jason, have you heard this album yet? Just curious on how it sounds, if you have.
