    hold on, let me catch my breath Supporter

    Sounds like it's going to be a pretty intense/heavy record (based solely off the song titles/first single).

    Not a fan of the production on the song, tbh. Right direction sonically though.
     
  6. I like the new song. I'll definitely gives this a shot.

    Is the mix on the new song really this bad or is it just the Spotify stream?

    The download I got from Pledgemusic doesn't sound great. Might just be how the song is unfortunately

    Didn't catch when the track listing initially came out that dead/death pops up in 4 song titles, I'm expecting this record to be very dark lyrically.

    one day you'll feel okay

    I held off on going to Warped this year to see Sum because I knew they'd be touring their new album a few months after. Joke's on me though, they're not coming to Denver on this tour :(

    "War" will be the official lead single, coming this Friday

    Do or do not, there is no try.

    Such a slow burner for a lead single. I enjoyed it though.

    Kind of surprised this is the official first single. Not sure if I'm feeling it compared to "Fake My Own Death." I'm expecting most of the songs to work better I'm context of the album.

    so we have officially picked the first single now. this song is called “war”. i picked this song because of it’s importance to me. i feel this song literally saved my life. i was at my absolute lowest point of what seemed like a never ending recovery. i was at a tipping point where i could have easily just given up and went back to my old ways of alcohol abuse which would’ve ended up killing me, which at the time felt like a better option. when all of a sudden, in mid thought, these lyrics sort of appeared in my head and i grabbed a pencil and paper instead of a bottle and started writing. when i read it back to myself i realized i had written words that i would need to live up to if i wanted to survive. whenever i had any thoughts of giving up i would read these lyrics myself to remind me that i need to keep fighting harder and what it was exactly i was fighting for. - deryck

    It's not bad, definitely a bit generic for Sum 41 ballads haha, but glad Deryck feels so strongly about it. Anywhoo, it also might be the smartest choice for wide appeal, sounds kinda Green Day ballad-y also, which we all know are often hits

    The chorus actually reminds me of "Jessica Kill"

    Good but not great imo (though the video and meaning are pretty powerful). Agree that it's pretty typical for a slow Sum 41 song, I thought it sounded like a mix of There's No Solution and Pieces

    I agree that it’s a bit on the generic side, but it’s certainly likable and I really like that it has meaning for Deryck. I’m just glad these guys are back and active again.

    I think it's really good. Even though it is only two songs so far I'm impressed by this album

    Cheers to the fact that we're not dead

    Seems like Hopeless is dropping the ball with marketing again for this album. The release is next week, and I'm barely seeing anything about it online.

    I wonder if it's being marketed more heavily in Canada.

    I was actually thinking about this the other day. I haven't seen anything about this album since War was released.
