We won't know til we hear the whole album  or atleast a few more songs

Bring The House Down, The song is taken from the band's forthcoming full-length album, "You Can't Kill My Rock 'N' Roll", which is due on September 21

 

Reminds me a lot of Slade's Run Run Away, which is a great song.

Jesus. you guys are being kind. that's a really average track imo. Esp for HSS who were perfection across Dreamin, Beg & Split. 

I agree with this. I liked the first single but the new one I don't think is that good. Hopefully the rest of the CD is better.

A lot of people here have unrealistic expectations.

We've all been through it when bands change it up and move in another direction.

Remember when Slang copped a whole lot of crap?
Everyone loves Race by Pseudo Echo, but the core 'pop' fans of that band would have been pissed. Probably consider it a career killer.

I'd love C'mon Take On Me II, but I know it isn't going to happen.

So I'm prepared to move on with open ears.
and my open ears are much preferring what I'm hearing now compared to the last album, so I'l listen to it and judge it on its own merits.
Not my ideal HCSS album, but so far it sounds ok.

?? err no. Why is it unrealistic to want the band to record something like the run of 5 albums when they were magnficent rather than something which is marginally better than the last pile of crap??? 

I'm not with you.

Because... time

Bands evolve. Sometimes in directions that suck.

I'm with you.

Which is why I see this new stuff as comparatively great.
I kinda expected them to continue with the direction they chose for the last album, so I'm happy that so far it's reasonably good.
Will have to wait until the full album is out to judge.

I'm well aware of that, but to me these last 2 songs are only marginally better than the last album.

I'll check it out on Spotify but my hopes are now zero based on this output.

Such a shame - this band arguably ruled the sleaze scene, but their insistent on returning to their earlier sound will kill this band for me.

Yep, me too probably.

But who knows if there are a bunch of people out there who love this stuff?
Maybe the Sweedes do? They're gonna pretty much think locally as they progress.

But it happens.
Bands change and I lose interest. Bon Jovi, Van Halen
Bands stay the same and I lose interest. WASP, Iron Maiden

I don't mind it again. This stuff may not be splitting ballsacks in half, but it's definitely going to be an album worth listening to.

    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.
