Glad to seeing these guys doing so well lately, they've f***ing earned it, I just hope they don't streamline their next album to be completely in the style of "Unretrofied"....

It's a fantastic song but I'd miss the noise, speed and dementia of songs in the vein of "Sunshine the Werewolf", "43% Burnt" and "Panasonic Youth".

Best f***ing grind-core band ever.

Yea they earned it, particularly by making soft bullsh** and selling their music to Target to play on their tv screens. These guys really had something going. Some really good music nobody had ever heard before, then they started making boring, runofthemill timetwisting "hardcore" bullsh**. p***ies.

But really I miss them =(
