  1. I saw them mention something on Twitter about working on new material. They said that their current tour is so limited because they're busy writing, so I'm hoping for a release sometime next year, probably summer or fall.
  2. Julien Baker - Appointments (Single) (2017)

    I saw this thinking a new song was out, I got crazy excited for a split second haha. Nonetheless, thanks for this! This album is probably going to be my AOTY. I second this, I'll have seen her three times this year in November - she's phenomenal live and seriously knows how to get a crowd quiet.
  3. Counterparts - You're Not You Anymore (2017)

    The only hardcore/metalcore release I was looking forward to this year - save for END - and they both came out in the same month. September's good
  4. Gang of Youths - Go Farther in Lightness (2017)

    My issue with these guys is always how long their tracks are - that being said this is a very strong album
  5. Brand New - Science Fiction (2017)

    Funny you say that, I literally just spent a while on FB disproving this, but I don't wanna try and explain it again so I'm gonna copy and paste what I said there to here: it'd be amazing if there was another album, but on the other hand it doesn't make sense. This can't be a demo because it's too well-polished, and there's no reason for them to put Mene or IAAN (which sucked anyway oops) onto the album because that'd just be wasting space on songs we've already had for at least a year. There are so many references on this album about it being their last, including the outro of Batter Up. This isn't demos, and it's highly unlikely that this is just a 'scrapped album' that they released 'just because'. The only thing that hints at another release is that P!MT registered for two releases this year, PMT-009 and PMT-010, but I think PMT-010 is more likely to be a 7" or a live album or something. But I think that if people go around expecting another album, we're going to play ourselves the same way that the Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar fanbases played themselves. Stop expecting more, take this for what it is, and if you're wrong, be pleasantly surprised.
  6. Brand New - Science Fiction (2017)

    I finished it! It seems to have Daisy's sort of southern influences with the occasional country tracks, it has Deja's lyricism where it's not too weird, but also not too straightforward, and Devil and God's ambition and scale. There's a lot of 'empty space' in the songs, it doesn't feel like walls of reverb like a lot of their past music did. The thing that really sticks out to me is just how Slow the record is. It's a lot more calm and peaceful than any of their previous stuff which I think personally is great, but I can see some people not liking it. The guitars are PHENOMENAL. I thought Julien Baker would take my number one spot this year but it seems she has competition now! This is phenomenal.
  7. Everything Everything - A Fever Dream (2017)

    Thank you so much for this! I loved their last album, the singles for this one haven't quite sold me on it though - so I'm curious to see what it's like!
  8. Wage War - Deadweight (2017)

    I never post on here but when i see someone being a jackass just for the sake of being a jackass its more annoying than ppl asking for a leak
  9. Sworn In - All Smiles (2017)

    My mistake then, the way you phrased it made it seem like you didn't like it is all!
  10. Sworn In - All Smiles (2017)

    Hundredth was* a melodic hardcore band, nothing says bands aren't allowed to change their sound. Of course, whether you like that or not is your choice, but a band has a right to change genre if they want to
  11. Hundredth - Rare (2017)

    It's Title Fight syndrome. I'm holding off on this album, wasn't a fan of it when TF did it, doubt I'll like it this time, but I'm willing to give it a shot, just gotta catch up on the stuff I'm interested in first
  12. Smidley - Smidley (2017)

    Yo I was just listening to this and I noticed that It Doesn't Tear Me Up cuts off about halfway through the song. Tried re-downloading from both sites but it still happens. I don't mind since the stream comes out tomorrow but just thought I'd give a heads up!
  13. Smidley - Smidley (2017)

    I've been looking forward to this! I remember talking to Conor at a Foxing show a couple of months ago, and I remember talking to him about this project too. Great guy, as is the rest of Foxing, but I don't know if I can say I've been looking forward to this more than whatever Foxing will be bringing out this year, those new songs they've been playing live knock it out of the park for me. Still, this will almost certainly land a place on my AOTY list
  14. Linkin Park - One More Light (2017)

    Honestly Linkin Park were the first ever band I got into hugely. I loved MTM, Meteora, and Hybrid Theory like most people did and initially A Thousand Suns hugely turned me off but I grew to love it and see it as one of my favorite albums by them, Living Things was still pretty good, not amazing but I didn't mind it at all. Wasn't huge into The Hunting Party but I've always had a soft spot for their calmer songs. I'm kind of keen to check this out but from reviews I've seen around the place it's not looking too good - always gotta try and keep an open mind, unlike some people
  15. More ambiant shit like this

    Yeah I thought so! But it was worth a shot - I get the kinda stuff you're looking for but it's hard to find specific examples
