    Framing Hanley HYPE! Here's the post from FB that @breanna. references:

    A Breaking Benjamin thread with multiple replies about it leaking...Harty and Echo. Feels like 2009 Tunelab again.

    According to Facebook, he's not the ex-Framing Hanley vocalist anymore. The band is back and the album will be titled 'Sumner Roots'.

    Can't agree with this, especially after having listened to the album multiple times. "Walk On Water" is very arena rock and gospel-influenced, the latter of which is something you don't really hear on any of the other tracks. I mean, I would say the most common threads throughout the songs are electronic music, which has been a part of their music since the self-titled, and arena rock, which has been a presence since This Is War onward. But even within those confines, you have deviations. Obviously there's "Remedy", which is just an acoustic ballad, but there's a lot of hip-hop and dubstep influence in some songs like "One Track Mind" and "Hail To The Victor". "Love Is Madness" is like dark electronic rock. Sure, songs like "Great Wide Open" and "Live Like A Dream" are closer in tone to "Walk On Water", but it's far from the only vibe on the album and it certainly isn't anything new for them.
    It's funny, because I went back and re-listened to their entire discography this week, and the self-titled's prog metal and A Beautiful Lie's alternative rock approaches were drastic shifts in tone leading to This Is War, but from This Is War onward, their sound becomes a lot more consistent. Brighter tones, a heavier emphasis on arena rock approaches and using electronics, orchestrals, and synths to create sounds that they probably would've used guitars for on an earlier album. I read an interview recently with Jared where he kind of downplays guitar in today's age, having a distaste for the wall of sound approach. I think we just need to accept that this is Thirty Seconds To Mars now, and has been for quite some time, and they're probably not going back.

    My personal favorite is a tie between Blue Sky Research and Our Long Road Home. Blue Sky gets a lot of obvious praise and rightfully so, but Our Long Road Home is such a vastly underrated album, and it's a shame that it's the only one of theirs not available on Spotify. It's also a shame they didn't stick with that sound as I felt both Plead The Fifth and The Episodes were kind of... lacking in some areas.

    I remember learning about both Strata and Sparta around the same time, and not that I was confused, but I found it amusing.

    They’re talking about possibly releasing this on their Facebook this morning.  That is if they can get enough people interested in this endeavor. 
    Copied from their post:
    “Hi friends!  In the event that a new record will not be ready for this year, we’re thinking about releasing Taproot “Besides”: a collection of about 100 previously unreleased B-sides, demos, and songs that never made it onto our records, all on one thumb drive.
    The release wouldn’t come without controversy and a lot of work so we want to make sure there is enough interest out there to take it on.
    Please Like the first comment if you would actually purchase this for about $40 if we released it sometime this summer! 
    Hope all is well in your world!”

    Echo's last post was August 16th, 2016. He returns after a year and a half absence with the following: "Drip!" What an entrance.

    All signs point to “Torn In Two” as the second single for Ember. Video is already done, teaser just dropped!

    This has been out since last year. I think Lucas was just posting the official video for Walk Out in the Rain.
