I really love Doom Days, but I find that for every great song they make, there's about seven others that are totally forgettable. I'm kinda perched for the album but also not getting my hopes up.
Perched for this, this doesn‘t really fit the Doom Days theme optically... so we‘ll see.
Album is out June 14th.
They said the album is super dark but ends on Joy being an uplifting song to provide hope.
I like Joy but Doom Days had me more excited for whats to come.
I like the deluxe CD set on their web store but it doesn't contain a description of everything that comes with it
Joy is a fantastic little pop song and is very solid, the production and vocals on it are strong. And only a 6-week wait for the album? Brilliant!
An incredible little bop.
Super into the album artwork. And also the fact they’ve reined in the album length with an 11 track affair. Hope it’s concise and effective. Joy’s a cute girl
Oh. So Doom Days was just a promo song affair?
Joy is really good, but part of the melody is very reminiscent of Way Beyond Me. Which isn't a problem, as I really like that.
Joy is a bop.
Ugh, the title track is so good. Joy is a bit too reminiscent of their past work for me after a few more listens. Hoping for more tracks in the vein of Doom Days
I think the album is meant to be quite dark, as they plonked Joy on at the end to lighten the mood apparently.
That's much better than Joy.
That's really great. I've liked everything I've heard so far - "Doom Days" being my fave and "Quarter Past Midnight" being my least. I'm really excited to listen to the whole thing in its entirety.
Joy slaps, Those Nights is great and Doom Days is one of the best things they've written. Renewed my Stan card, I'm perched.
I'm absolutely loving this album! Grabbed the Target edition with 2 bonus tracks. Not a bad song.
This is a very strong album, I didn't realise how much I missed them.
Nocturnal Creatures is THAT girl. My god.
Loving this album too, they never disappoint, though I don’t deem the album very “apocalyptic” like the band were teasing us with months back / last summer. Was expecting some heavier sounds. I feel as though Wide World sounded more apocalyptic due to the soundscape, the themes of death & time running out and those radio announcer vocal effects. Anyway, Bad Decisions, Nocturnal Creatures and Million Pieces are my initial favourites, but every song is top notch.
#3 in the midweeks due to Madonna and Bruce Springsteen.
