NEW We Were Skeletons

Seeing as the cd release show for We Were Skeletons' full length is tomorrow, I figured now would be a good time to post this album. I've seen it up on some blogs here and there, but I know they were asked to put it down by either the band or Top Shelf Records.

I was given the unmastered version of the album about a year ago by the band and I haven't gone a week without listening to it the whole way through. When I received the mastered songs a while ago I got back into the habit of listening daily. Honestly, this is going to be one of those records that set the mold for a shit load of screamo bands sometime in the future. I don't want to go on and on about how great this is because I have a limited amount of time until my neighbor realizes I'm stealing his internet, but I will say that We Were Skeletons' Self Titled full length is "La Fine Non E La Fine" status. I'm talking about on par with records like "Il N'y A Pas D'Orchestre" and "Jokes".

If you don't know who they are, WWS is a screamo band from Lancaster that sounds like a mix of the european skramz bands and some of the later American screamo bands around the mid 2000's. I would definitely recommend this record to anyone who likes La Quiete, Off Minor, Kidcrash, Ampere or City of Caterpillar.

Tomorrow evening there is a release show for this record in Lancaster PA at Senorita Burrita with Boys & Sex, Merchant Ships, Snowing, my band and Our Parents Forgot Us. You should come check it out and buy some shit.

Btw, I do not think "Jokes" is as good as "La Fine Non E La Fine" or "Il N'y A Pas D'Orchestre". Just saying.
But I'm pretty sure you're right about WWS s/T full-lenght record!
