i saw these guys opening for afi a few months ago and they have since outdone afi on my list of favourite musicians. they are amazing live, wonderful recorded, and incredibly gracious and kind people. i'm still surprised they aren't any more famous than they are.
Just joined last FM and the first thing I did was look up this band. One of my all time favorite bands, if not number one. I've only seen them live once but I've been trying to make any show since. They're just incredible! I suggest you REALLY give them a chance, not just a cursory glance. I bet you won't regret it!!
You know, I went to Memphis, and I went to Sun Studio the day that I was gonna be seeing these guys live, opening for AFI, and yeah, these guys were there, on the damn Sun Studio tour with me, in front of me, blocking my damn view. Then, after the concert, I bought their CD, and I went up to Ben and he recognized me from the Sun Studio tour, and he talked to me about it and signed my CD with my name and x's and o's and my dad took our picture and then the same thing happened with two other guys in the band. So yeah, they're pretty cool guys.
