Escape Artists Never Die

By Funeral for a Friend

On one hand faced with a mountain of press and media that can say nothing bad about the black haired post-nu-metal-rock-core-emo-make-up-your-own-new-genre band, whilst on the other hand faced with a similar level of interest in the music as my regular hobby of sticking pins in my eyes - this was not going to be an easy task!

What do you want to know? 14 to 16 year-olds love them, Boots are selling out of black hair dye better than they ever have, black jeans with chains & t-shirts that say "Brian Maiden" are a uniform and they're the saviours of British rock according to Kerrang... until next week anyway!

If you have the album will you want this? Well there are two tracks you don't have but that's probably because they weren't good enough to go on the album in the first place. There's also two videos to wet your appetite but they don't make the songs sound any better. I'm getting old, boohoo don't understand, bitter rant!
