lololol. Yeah, I won't be buying this. That's some advanced adult emo pandering right there.

To be fair, this is exactly what I come to expect when I spy any thread Wasda creates, regardless of whether or not I've heard of the artist in question.

And yet here you are... again. Over and over. Thanks for bumping my threads!

If you took the time to read the replies in this thread, you'd see that one person regrettably admitted to buying this on account of nostalgia.  Every other participant is taking the piss, and pointing & laughing at the idea of unironically buying a HH record in 2021.

 

If anything, we should be thanking you for the quality reading material.  VC would be a lot dryer without your meme threads.  Keep it up, champ.

Oh boy another band from almost 20 years ago that decided to 're-imagine' their songs. Is there really that much of an audience where these bands need to keep doing this? Or is it purely a 'we made a shitty deal with a shitty label when we were young and cant afford the licensing to the originals' type thing?

Copped instantly. I wish I could hear a song now so I knew what to expect, but I’ll continue supporting these guys. 
 

I’m betting they don’t have rights to the original version of this- and fans are paying money secondhand for it, so why not re-record it and at least give them *something*?

 

I feel like people here are so negative over nothing sometimes lol. What can ya do

I think you nailed it with the latter, but at the same time I've become completely numb to the levels that people will go to scratch the nostalgia itch.  So perhaps a little bit of both... 30/70, maybe?

Me.  I am the "people" you speak of.  It's okay, you can say it.

Yikes, people really shouldn't  be paying secondhand when this is in stock, new on clear green vinyl, at Victory right meow:

It's probably just a lack of research before arguing something rather than people paying stupid prices.

Definitely the latter. Although I do think Senses Fail and Silverstein did a fucking great job with their releases. I really enjoy them. 
 

Oh, and Taylor Swift too.

To be fair, it isn’t just this thread I’ve seen it in recently!!! I didn’t mean to call just you out on it. I apologize lol. I remember going to absolutepunk in high school and being super discouraged when I wanted to talk about music only to see people trashing the artists I had started listening to and even making fun at the OP making the threads and stuff. It just bums me out because this brings me back to how I felt back then, lol. I get it though, there’s plenty of art being made that is probably overall better than this album, I think nostalgia plays a huge role in this band continuing to exist.

The band has an audience that enjoys their music. This is an old album that was pretty popular, and they're releasing new recordings of the song during a period where a band's revenue streams have been limited. I don't see anything wrong here.

Sure, they're repackaging old music, but it's their music and they're not forcing anyone to buy it. Hell, I decided this was a little too much for me and ultimately ended up cancelling - and they didn't give me any trouble. For what it's worth, they've sold out a few of these bundles already, so there's a market for it.

Damn, that’s a long pre-order if they’re not finished recording it yet 🤔

 

*Digital download will be sent between 4/16 - 4/23.   We are 75% through the recording process.  If you would like to see our weekly progress while finishing the record, tune into our Twitch to view as we track live.

**Although we will be sending the digital download on the specified date, your vinyl LP will be shipped once we get them back from the plant.  As you know, vinyl manufacturing is a slow process, but are excited about these limited edition variants and can't wait to get them to you.
