I am sure they will have a full-blown tour after the album is released.

skeptical about the new album since the last one sucked balls compared to Separation Sunday and Boys and Girls in America. Musically it was overindulgent, lyrically it didn't seem to carry the same weight and it lacked the characters and stories from past albums.

Hoping for good things though on this one from one of my favorite bands

i thought Stay Positive was great. Sequestered, Magazines, Joke on Jamaica, Navy Sheets, Cutters, Sapphire, Slapped Actress are all good tracks. Separation Sunday is by far my all time favorite but come on that's difficult to top.

cam0083 I don't think this one will be over the top. I think htis will be more rock and in your face than the last few. Why? B/c Franz Nicolay is no longer in the band. I think they will lose a lot of their Springsteen-esque sound.

I like Franz Nicolay and I think he's what kept them from getting too generic. Here's hoping he left to return to World/Inferno and not to write more cheesy (though somewhat appealing) songs about the Watchmen. And that World/Inferno plays some more shows for chrissakes!
