Anyone heard Heavens? Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio and some dude name Josiah Steinbrick formed this band not long ago... I really dig it. Matt's voice is still awesome, though a bit polished (it's missing the raw characteristics I'm used to). It's MUCH different from Alkaline Trio, which made me pleasantly surprised. I didn't think Skiba's voice could work well with another type of music. Check it out:

I have, and love their album. Standout songs are definitely Gardens, Patent Pending, and Dead End Girl.

I don't really see the big deal about them. They're not horrible or anything, but a lot of it just sounds generic to me, and a lot of it is pretty dull. I mean, I give Skiba credit for attempting something new, but that alone doesn't make it anything special.

Hmm, I don't think it sounds generic at all. They've incorporated much more than just guitar, bass, and drums... and they did a great job of it. They did a great job of making Skiba's voice fit with this style of music... the harmonies (not in the vocals, obviously, because there aren't any) are really well done... I don't know, I think it's quite different.

When it finishes dling(!lol) I'll upload it if anyone wants. It may take some time though as I haven't had much look with torrents recently.

Made a thread about them a while ago. For a long time I thought they were pretty awesome then I started to get bored like I usually do with most bands. I think I'll start listening to them again. My favorites were Heather, Counting, Watching You, and Patent Pending I believe.

Ah crap, I just searched it... sure enough. I completely missed the thread when you made it. Could someone upload the album for me?

No probs, partly my fault for being to lazy to edit it in.
