    Are any of the Christian kids keeping track of how many times there’s a swear?

    Swearing isn't that big of a deal to most Christians.

    I don’t know, man. From what Spencer has said they’re getting a ton of pushback. Personally I don’t care. But if he is talking about it on Twitter there has to be quite a few people that think it’s a big deal!
  5. David-


    Seriosuly? Huh. Almost all my Christian friends swear. Just from personal experience it didn't seem like it'd be a huge deal!

    I've seen some comments from Christians on social media saying that they will no longer listen to the band.

    Eye rolling so hard. Not at you but at those judgemental Christians. Good riddance, I say.

    Anyways, this was a great interview with tons of insight. I’m beyond excited for this record.

    I remember seeing a similar backlash (although on a much, much smaller scale) when that guy from The Chariot said "Oh my God" in one of his songs.

    It's interesting. A band like BMTH or Fictional Band XYZ can totally change their sound on a follow up.. and when someone says "this isn't for me", it's "that's cool". But when a Christian says they aren't interested in listening to a band anymore due to lyrical content, or their image, or, I dunno, them saying they aren't Christians anymore, it's "lol those judgemental Christians". I don't get it.... who's really the one judging here?

    If someone says they refuse to listen to a band they once loved because they used one swear word to convey an emotion- then I definitely laugh at them because that is not the same as saying “it’s just not for me”. Like I said; good riddance.

    I know some very devout christians in my area, ones I really respect, and they have cursed every now and then. Not like a sailor but they do it too. It's silly to think you can't swear if you are christian.

    Why? Movies or music or books with swear words or other content that could be considered offensive; it's not for me, and not for a lot of folks. You laugh at those people? Dang, lol.

    Also, my original intent was to point out this sort of bridge you made between someone saying they won't listen to a band, and being judgemental. Kind of unfair to make that kind of leap. If someone is up in arms and protesting and causing a ruckus, then great, but to immediately jump to calling an entire group of people judgemental and (symbolically) laughing at them? A little...harsh?

    I think your points are fair, and I can empathize having for a long time avoided swearing (it really annoyed people that I wouldn't submit to pressure to). But, I think there's a difference then between someone saying that a new song that they released with a swear word isn't for them, and deciding a band and their entire discography is no longer for them because of one new song has a swear word. It seems like an extreme reaction for someone to swear off a band entirely because of them swearing once (I don't mean to imply you are - I'm speaking more broadly).

    Found it interesting that James and Grant didn't record on the new album, it was only Aaron, Chris, Spencer, and Tim with them consulting Grant and James.

    Did they say why? I'd assume work or family commitments?

    they said those four were the only ones who actually wrote and did most of the performances on other records, so they streamlined things by not having James & Grant in the studio this time. could have been a scheduled thing, too, but their reasoning makes sense either way.
