    I know wasn't that weird??? I was like "ecco" ... "echo" ... then it started echoing lol but yeah Gartska and Chon...:hbang:
    No way man, when I was ticked when I heard it. The old version and recording quality was way better imo. I like the old solo, old transitions, and the old explosive ending that makes me rock out even tho the quality practically clipped. I don't dislike the new version, but dang, they pulled a Vildhjarta on this one.

    Yeah, The Perfect Pillow was always my favorite song of theirs and I don't really dig this new album version, although I get why they did it. It's a lot more stripped down, less metal version of the song which fits with their new stylistic change as compared to the first ep.

    Also, Mario doesn't own an LACS but I know he's always used stock pickups as he's never cared what's in his guitars. In his old refin'd Ibby though, I believe he has duncans. Not sure which.

    See his new S type? Pretty sure thats LACS. I would assume the stock pups are dimarzios. I know for the AAL tour they used RG652FX's with tone zone/air norton combos that Ibanez gave to them.

    Mario is playing an Ibanez S5521Q unless he got an LACS that looks exactly like it. I really doubt that they'd already have access to the LACS.

    I think you're right...Now that I looked at it more closely. I assumed it was custom because because I'm fairly positive they were/are/going to be endorsed by Ibanez as I recall Drew saying they gave them guitars for recording the album. Shows how much I know :D

    Either way he's good enough to deserve one and they sound great.

    If I recall Mario and Erick reside in San Diego, not exactly too far from Los Angeles, pretty close actually.
    Also they've been supplied with a few prestige models right? So if they haven't already done it yet, maybe they're scheming something up on a custom model form right now! How cool would that be?

    Also the opportunity to tour/jam with members of AAL and have them make a contribution to your debut album.

    my poster wasn't signed, so glad to see it waiting for me while I was at school for like 12 hours...Pretty cool thing to come home to after a stupid long day like that.

    Man you're in for a treat if you haven't seen them yet, especially if there's other really cool bands you like on the lineup as well. Only seen em once, it was pretty awesome.

    Just got back from seeing the ....in homies again. Their set was SO tight, absolutely impeccable as always, and the crowd went NUTS for them too. So stoked to see those dudes get some success after all their hard work.

    Balance And Composure was pretty good. Not really my cup of tea, but they put on a good show and they sounded killer.

    I missed most of Circa Survive's set actually cause Mario, Erick, their photog dude and I went to go get sushi. But we caught the first few songs of Circa which were great. I was never huge into them but after jamming their stuff recently, it transfers very well to a live situation and they're all great musicians.

    I just got in from seeing Chon. Those goobers shred something fierce. I feel especially lucky, because this tour Chon has been a supporting act for Circa Survive. This Indianapolis gig was a rest day for CS and the rest of the tour bands, so Chon ended up headlining in Indy. With the extra set time they had, it was really cool to see them play some deep cuts like Mountains of Creation. Can't wait for next time!

    I just got to see them twice in one week! Saw them this Tuesday first on the Circa Survive tour, and that was great even for the 30 minute set at Milwaukee's worst venue. Best part though was that my buddy and I found out they're playing a a free Friday show just 2 hours away so we made it all happen to be there. They played for more than an hour, and we stood at the very front. I was literally close enough to both Mario and Erick that I could have tapped their frets for them, and we also heard everything entirely through their amps and acoustic kit. They played stuff since their beginning! 3 songs off the EP, O.G., The Perfect Pillow, and the best stuff of Newborn Sun, Woohoo!, and Grow. Nailed everything besides some off starts since they were playing a completely different set. My faith in their skills is completely solidifed. Insane.

    Got my Newborn Sun vinyl signed too!

    I wanted to go to that free show in Appelton so bad, but it's about a 6 hour drive one way for me. Sounds like it was a hell of a show!
