Just had a look to see what Nasty Habit were up to and discovered they have recruited a new drummer and re-named themselves Major Crush. Didn't see this coming, although the recent change in sound could've been a hint. Here's a preview of the band's first song due to be released shortly

I think it sounds promising. More modern but still rocks...

I listened to it on my way to work and during my lunch break, catchy as hell. It's a departure from their early sound but I wouldn't call it ''modern'' to me it sounds a lot like late 90s / very early 2000s rock or pop you'd hear on the radio but very well done. Also the bonus track ''Bittersweet'' is very good

Oh and I almost forgot, three of the songs were taken from Nasty Habit's ''Desperate Times Desperate Measures'' EP and ''Turn Up The Radio'' which they released under their old name is also on it. The album clocks in at something like 33 or 34 minutes, 37 with bonus track so rather short

Yeah I'm enjoying it also,your description is spot on,it kinda reminds me of Eric Martin in places with that whole pop/punk/rock American pie soundtrack sort of vibe...very summer sounding :) production is excellent compared to the debut nasty habit disc which is a bonus...but radio friendly it definitely is even with the slight heavier edge in places which adds to it for me :)

Kind of like Jimmy Eat World meets Hanson meets Slash :D despite only knowing one song each from Jimmy Eat World and Hanson but that's how I imagine their music to sound like haha

 

Just a good record for the summer, and not the ''style'' I'd usually listen to so branching out a little which is good

I always thought Nasty Habit had a lot of potential as a sleaze / 80s band which unfortunately they never managed to fully showcase on record, be it due to subpar production or still being too young and not fully developed as a band yet. So it's unfortunate we'll never see what could have been if they had kept at it and perfected their sound on another Nasty Habit album

 

Having said that, I don't dislike the new direction they went in. Different style for sure but it's catchy and nicely done

    • You brought the man out of me, so many times, easily. 
    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
