    The gutiar playing of the first track really reminds me of Avenged Sevenfold's Nightmare album
    After the first two tracks, can't wait! First 3DG are releasing a new album this october, and now Stone Sour. This year, and next, just keeps getting better
    Those first two tracks are killer. Pretty bummed that Economaki won't be apart of this, though.
    Anybody know exactly why Shawn left? Besides "personal issues" I hope it doesn't have anything to do with addictions or illnesses.
    I'm interested in who their new bass player is going to be since I doubt Rachel Bolan is going to tour with them full time.
    Since when do four English shows mean a full UK tour? Forgetting N.Ireland, Scotland and Wales only slightly. Poor effort.
    Can't wait to see em play the new stuff at Soundwave next year. From what I've heard, the songs are pretty kicker.
