Any fans?

some of their music, their look. But it's actually pretty good stuff, even if they do sound like they are highly influenced by TDH. Good songwriting, no matter how original, I often like. Some others around here may agree.

This is good, a good deal more folk than TDH though. The front man (who I am assuming it is, at least) looks like a mix between Dustin Kensrue and KC.
If seeing is believing, then believe that we have lost our eyes.

yeah, the folk emphasis is moreso I suppose.

After now listening to Posted Image,


their singer at times seems to be channeling Richard Edwards from Margot and the Nuclear So and So's as much if not more than Casey. But he still does it in a good way. I'm pretty intrigued by this band now, even if they sound a fair amount like other bands I'm a fan of.

I dig the song I am listening to on their MySpace, but is it just me or does the singer sound like he has an odd lisp? It's actually fairly annoying.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Especially on the first song, I can't stand the s's.

And I don't really hear much of TDH in their music, honestly. Maybe a little in the third song, though.

They don't sound much like TDH to me, just similar folk flavor. This band is cool, but god damn was their cover art done by a high schooler dicking around in photoshop or what?

Maybe someone can help me out (most likely dormin)

Is the EP conceptual in nature? I haven't been able to find lyrics online, but it seems like there might be a story going on. Possibly.

-On January 7th, we will begin tracking our debut full-length, "Terror and Everything After" with Joshua Silverberg. We have 10 out of the 12 songs written for the CD, and we promise this is going to blow the EP away. :-) We posted a demo of a song called "Bad Canterbury" a week or so ago for those who voted for us. That song will be featured on the full length, although it won't be as acoustic.

Well, it's technically an EP.

So... yeah. That's why it's short.
