    They played in Buffalo about a month ago and played the album front to back as their first set. They claimed it was the first time. Weird

    I liked it. 10 years, seeing as we are all reminiscing, I got into it yes, like everyone else. 5 years ago I was still listening to it but I haven't in a while. Probably should dust it off and bring back a little bit of good memories from a better place

I saw them in 2002 when they opened for blink-182 and Green Day and when they came and played at my college, and at both shows they just were not good. It's a shame you had some bad experiences. I just saw them about a month a go and the show was great!
    What? I saw them on their Clarity tour and they didn't miss a beat. I thought they sounded even better than they do on album.

    Only 4 UK dates? Damn Wish I could afford to go to Reading or Leeds. Or even one festival this year.

    I was lucky enough to see Clarity and Bleed American played back to back exactly a week ago. It was seriously one of the best shows I've been to. With Courtney Marie Andrews touring and doing backing vocals, it makes songs like "Hear You Me" and "The Authority Song" perfection live.

    ha, that's exactly what I thought when I read the article. Fond memories of this band. Clarity was a great album, too.

    Ten years? Holy shit I feel old. I listened to this album growing up. Not even the band as a whole but just this album. I was new to music and didn't dive right into a band's discography as I do now. All I had of theirs at the time was Bleed American. I don't really listen to the band now, but if someone played this album it'd be fine with me. In fact, I'd go seem them perform the album live but they're not playing in my area (or country even).

    Saw then recently in SLC, they said that was their Bleed American anniversary show. I'm confused... Nevertheless, a great band that puts on amazing shows.
