I miss this band like crazy every time I listen to them. One of the best in their genre.
I guess I'll start the debate right away: Death Chorus is my favorite PBC album.
Agreed. That's been my go-to since it came out. Wish they had a good track to replace Siouxsie Jeanne, though.
I saw them live on what I think was either their last tour or the second to last one with Citizen.
They were incredible, put on an amazing show and the songs from Death Chorus sounded great live. Having them end the set with "The Redder, The Better" was perfect.
I just realized that TRTB is almost 10 years old.
Don't remind me haha.
I still remember downloading Sometimes Things Just Disappear on a whim for whatever reason and listening to it at my kitchen table. I think that was the first time I listened to the band. Either that, or I looked them up before downloading and heard Resent and Resistance on their Myspace. That's still one of, if not my favorite song of theirs.
I think I first found them surfing YouTube in like 2008 or something. I hated them at first, but I went back a few days later to check out some more stuff and feel in love with the first EP. Everything else just came after that.
I love Clash Battle Guilt Pride so much, it always felt to me like the album that Rise Against just don't have the ablity to make any more. The grit of that record and his vocals are just perfect to my ears. The 1-2 punch of the opening two tracks is unbeatable. I realy never got into that last album, the vocal changes were just not something I enjoy
They set the bar pretty high with CBGP.
Dig everything up to the last record. I like some of the songs on Death Chorus, but it is not on the same level imo as CBGP, Chasing Hamburg, and STJD.
Death Chorus grew on me. I wasn't a fan until I saw songs performed live. The energy they brought to them was great (since the record overall just felt like it was lacking energy on the studio recordings). I grew to enjoy it on later listens.
I still don't get the meaning of WLWYCD. Then again, I was embarrassingly slow to figure out "Live fast, die young."
The live presentations didn't do much for me because the Cleveland show for the Death Chorus tour did not have a ton of people there. It was depressing.
Oh damn, that's a shame. The venue I saw them in was smallish (500 or so cap) and a bunch left after Citizen, but for the couple hundred that did stick around, it was killer.
Maybe there was about 100ish. I can't remember for sure. It was a stark difference from when they were doing their CBGP run.
I think the last good turnout I saw for them was in 2011 with Make Do and Mend. The place was damn near empty by the time they went on during the last tour.
I think I actually saw these dudes at a Warped Tour one time and I remember it being great
I never got to see them headline, but I saw them open three times (twice for TWY, once for TBS), and they were spectacular every time.
I miss this band :(
My hopes are going to skyrocket anytime someone bumps this thread.
I've seen them live twice. The first time their music didn't really catch my ear but the second time I enjoyed it. What do you guys recommend?
Start with Clash Battle Guilt Pride and go backwards. Personally, I didn't like what I heard off DC.

Yeah, definitely don't let Death Chorus scare you away from the rest of their catalog. You might like it, though.
