    actually sounds really good live. im starting to think maybe its the way its was mixed or produced that makes it sound not so good. and ben sheperd is a badass.

    Wow, this song cooks live. The energy and urgency on display here is palpable. It’s as if the wait for this album was longer and harder for them than anyone else, and it’s finally time to play.
