It’s been 2 weeks since What Should Have Been Said was released! Now that you’ve had plenty of time to listen and think it over, what song is your favorite?

Maybe I've listened to TGG so many times I'm just not use to hearing the new sound. 😏 Either way they're both good. Thanks for explaining and sorry if I sounded a little annoying

Nah you’re totally fine hahahaha <3

Everyone’s gonna feel the way they feel and, love it or hate it, I’m cool with whatever as long as it gives them something to talk about :p

I'm not saying make everything sound like "The Gentlemen's Guide" I'm just saying that it sounded more raw if you know what I mean, and can't wait for the new stuff. ;)

I know you’re not, haha. And actually, The Gentleman’s Guide was a lot less “raw” than WSHBS. We didn’t have a drummer when we did TGG so all the drums are programmed, the guitar tones are from amp sims and not real amps, there’s a lot more that was programmed and done in computers on that, while on WSHBS we got to record real drums with Arun and use a lot of our favorite amps and guitars at the studio we were in! If anything is “overproduced,” it’s TGG hahaha :p

So be prepared to take a tiny bit of criticism, but the new EP musically is fantastic. The vocals and lyrics though are a little lacking. On "The Gentlemen's Guide" the lyrics were so well thought and sounded like your voice and if I heard it on the radio I could identify it as you. In my opinion, the new EP lyrically, was kind of simple, and the vocals sound a little overproduced, but the music is fantastic. I hope on your album or whatever's next you can go back to "The Gentlemen's Guide"sound

I appreciate the criticism, and I could sit here and go over details and specifics all day… but instead of giving you a 1,000 word synopses on my feelings toward the records and the progression of our sound, I’ll leave it at this:

I disagree.

As for our next release, I have 2 possible tracklists for a full length record picked out and nearly finished. Neither of them are anything like The Gentleman’s Guide or What Should Have Been Said, and both of them are aggressive and angry and take a lot of shots.

There’s no better way to end What Should Have Been Said than with my favorite lyric I’ve ever written, and this song does just that. It’s title, being taken from an episode of Dr. Who, makes it the only song on the EP who’s title is a quote. This song has been a favorite among the band since the day we started pre-pro, so we hope you all enjoy it as much as we do!
