Woah, that albums sounding really kickass so far. Are they also going to be releasing a copy in stores to or is it just myspace?

I used to be the biggest Pennywise fan in the world. Then "From The Ashes" came out and I almost killed someone. I've only listened to "The Fuse" twice, and though I really enjoyed it I haven't bothered hearing it again.

I hope this new album turns me back into that child that LOVED this band.

From what I've heard it sounds kind of like Straight Ahead. So I guess that's a good thing.

03-23-2008, 09:44 AM
Straight Ahead was unbelievably good. So yay.

03-23-2008, 11:08 AM
After listening to more than one song, I'm actually not sure where to place this album. Heck, it could even be a new thing on it's own.

03-23-2008, 11:44 AM
They should just re-release any previous album. Wait, they did, right?

That joke has been run into the ground. In fact, it's been buried. Buried deep.

And before anyone says it, the "joke? that's not a joke!" response has also been run into the ground. In fact, it's been buried. Buried deep.

HAHAHAHA, that "joke" was my 4th attemp to make a post in this thread. :D

Seriously, Pennywise run into the ground. (after the first album, lol) They are buried. Buried deep. :D

03-23-2008, 12:02 PM
lolz can i bury something in you? lololololo i r dirty.

In other news, why is no one mourning the death of the "album every two years" streak? nevar 4get.

03-23-2008, 12:06 PM
I've noticed quite a few bands that dropped that pattern recently. Bad Religion, The Vandals, Alkaline Trio, etc. It's like a trend to break the trend.

Edit: Also Billy Talent could drop their "album every three years" streak if the new one does come out this year.

03-23-2008, 12:12 PM
Well, after 6 or 7 abums, it takes a long time to pick which previous album should be re-released.

you can go to their myspace and download it for free when it comes out

03-24-2008, 08:35 AM
They will release a physical copy in stores later on.

03-24-2008, 03:51 PM

Because maybe they took the extra time to actually write a new song or two? lolz.

03-24-2008, 03:54 PM
It's out today, right?

03-24-2008, 04:42 PM
In some areas, yes. I think in the US it comes out tomorrow.

03-25-2008, 09:32 AM
Yup, today i recieved a message on myspace so i can download the album. And it works ! :)

03-25-2008, 09:54 AM
What the hell? I didn't get it yet :mad:

Pennywise's experiment with free online distribution has apparently turned into a major success for the band. According to an OC Register report, the album has been downloaded more than 400,000 times and has resulted in the band's highest charting single to date. The track, "The Western World" debuted at No. 34 on Billboard's Hot Modern Rock Tracks.

The band commented:

The minute you give away something free, you're setting yourself up for disaster. Are we gonna sell 10 records? Are we gonna do 100,000, or 5,000, or 500,000? We don't know. It's never been done. But we figured, worst-case scenario, we're gonna be able to get our music and our message out to potentially millions of people at the click of a button.

The whole time that this stock market of music has been busy spiking and plunging, we've just been down here cruising along. We've had success, but it's come in these tiny little increments. We never wanted to be rock stars – we still don't.
The band was equally blunt about the dissolving of their lengthy relationship with Epitaph:

No one was really excited about doing the next Pennywise record at Epitaph. You could almost sense it in the air there: 'We love you guys, but we gotta do something new.
In regards to downloading, they noted:

Who goes to buy a new pair of pants without trying them on, you know? If you're a band you should be so confident in your music you can say, 'Here, try it. If you like it, buy it.'
You can find the rest of the interview here.


I'm really glad this is working out well for them; plus this record is their best effort in a while, imo. And serious lawlz at the Epitaph comment.

I have been into forex trading since long now and I have to say that It can be very much useful to make nice profit if you plays your card right on any given time but again it all depends from person to person variability of investment techniques
