Do you per chance remember Funeral For a Friend? That post-hxc band who had serious potential but fucked up along the way? Well it appears they are trying to gain some credit. Either that or give a wink in the direction of the kinda people that will support them on their first US in years. “Here’s looking at you title fight”.
I get why bands post vids of their influences to get new fans liking what they loved growing up and I get posting a tour buddies’s vids to give them support. But it feels like they just did a quick google search and found out No Sleepcore and ‘the wave’ are the trendy thing in murican’ hardcore so they’re gonna post about that.
Random note: FFAFs fan base could be one of the origins of the tr00 movement. When they did the album Tales Don’t Tell Themselves they got a hella lot of stick for not being hardcore anymore. And made this transition back to their r00ts. It knocked them off the trajectory they were planned as being one of those big rock bands who came from heavier scene, like Biffy Clyro… Or You Meat Six…(wat duh fu-) Kinda makes me butthurt that they feel pressured by some 20 somethings who rly get what hardcore is all about and how you start, and die, in teh scene.
Y R ffaf playing with my heart? Y R they obsessed with their r00ts when it just makes em dated as fuk?? How much do you bet their first US tour in years will compose of tr00 support bands?
