I'm sure they don't, they are a Christian band.
Anyway I love them alot. I got to see them in November and December and they were amazing both times.

I've heard of a few songs. They were pretty good. Wish they didn't have a stereotypical emo name.

The only thing that really bothers me about them is how the singer totally emulates Chris Leo (Native nod/van pelt's) urgent panic sing/speak vocal style and the kiddies call it "fresh." it was fresh 18 years ago.

they aren't 80's emo?! god damn mewithoutYou. just kidding, i don't only listen to 80s emo, i listen to 90s emo, 00s emo, and indie (they are indie?) and tons of other kinds of music(like post-hardcore and screamo!!) too. i have even gotten past the fact they are a Christian band. i really have improved my tolerance.

and the dancing, it makes me laugh, though i agree they do look a bit high..but thats because they are unique and so they have their very own awesomeness.

If the drummer doesn't do heroin or coke before he goes on stage he's for sure mentally handicapped.

The christianess doesn't bother me really... only when its like 'Take all the non believers bring them to the water to pray!!" does it bother me.

The singer isn't really that christian, when I saw them live he simply said. "The bible says that whoever believes in God will be forever blessed. (not that exact quote... but something along the lines of that) I'm not sure if I believe or not, but I might as well give it a shot."

I thought that was cool.

Catch for us the foxes is one of the best cds ever made.

Easily in my top 10.

Two songs that prove their Christianity:

Carosels...."If i didnt have you as my god..."


Janurary 1979......"If i could be your servant...."

Atleast that is what im thinking

They're playing a show with Minus the Bear in April, so I'll probably end up seeing them. What kind of music are they exactly? I'd probably stay for their set anyways, but it would be nice to know what to expect.

or instead of searching thru lyrics u cud read any of their announcements which always veer towards preaching. I love them. Theyre wonderful people. Theyre drummer manned their merch table n talked to me, the singer stood in the crowd for the openers, theyre all humble. I got front row and he sweat all over me. But amazing pictures followed. well, i love mwY

Aaron Weiss = total genius. I wish I could write like him. I don't know why some of you should feel you need to get past the Christian lyrics, only one song I know of actually mentions Jesus (carousels) anyway. I think all his lyric are so beautiful, maybe it's cause I'm christian I don't know. The structures are all so flawless *sigh* I've only seen them in live videos though, must see them live. Have yall heard their first albums though, they are positively rotten, maybe it's just cos of all the screaming, the feeling's lost. How did they progress so much from album to album. Simply amazing. On a very humorus note these guys tour in a van that runs purely on vegetable oil and Jesus love. True Story.

Is from A to B as Screamy as their 1st album was, i think it was called "I Never Said I was Brave"?, cause I went straight for that and it was just too much screaming for my taste. I probably didn't give from A 2 B a fair chance in hell (what a pun for a Christain Band). Can't hear the lyrics on the 1st too well so wouldn't know what they actually were were. I'd research it but don't have time right now. I'll download some later and give my input. Now I feel less smart.

they are a Christian band.

Well that settles it. They must suck.

Kidding.

But I see a lot of kids from the emo area like them.

That settles it. They must suck.

Kidding.

I think I've heard them before and didn't like them.

Well I gave A-->B Life another chance and downloaded all the songs and it does sound lot better IMO than I Never Said I was Brave, I don't think it's as good as Catch For Us The Foxes, but still very good. Silencer is my favorite it's very touching for me. The guitar on AB is better I think it's more rockin. And I stand by the fact that the only lyric that actually says Jesus by name is in Carousels - "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom" the words of the criminal crucified beside Jesus who repented. I didn't mean that he didn't speak of Jesus and God etc. before just that his lyrics can be enjoyed by Christians and atheists alike, because they are so amazing. You don't have to be religious to enjoy them. I think his singing improved over the albums but the lyrics have pretty much been amazing all along.

^^^^^ actually I'll correct myself, Jesus is also in the lyrics for The Cure For Pain at the very end. "Jesus have mercy on us". A-->B Life is brilliant can't stop listening to it for some reason. I <3 mewithoutYou. I must see them live ASAP. They're touring with Thursday!

I saw them live back in July with Unwed Sailor. That was a damn good show, though the crowd was unusually small (only about 100-150 people). I'm really looking forward to Brother, Sister.

I love this band alot, As a Christian I can really appreciate what Aaron is writing about, especially on 'foxes'. Most of the songs are his struggles with his faith which is somthing I find very refreshing. Also everyone should go to there websight and read Aaron's journals, he's very intelligent and will give you alot to think about.

They are one of the most amazing bands I've ever heard. Only ignorant fools would be bothered by the Christian messages. What's the difference between someone singing about their girlfriend to about their beliefs? Not a thing, it's their passion.

Tonally they are the best. The bass tone is so solid and the guitars are so beautiful. They made me like Fender again.
