SOTD: Gym Class Heroes - Peace Sign/Index Down

In September 2008, I saw GCH live for the first time. I got robbed and punched in the face by 12 year olds with knives while waiting in line (gotta love London), made some amazing friends, got one of Matt McGinley's drum sticks (because the security guard felt sorry for me because of the whole getting punched thing), met the band, and it remains one of the most amazing gig experiences of my life. Half the gig I couldn't even sing along, I was smiling so hard.

From the first moment I heard this song on the album, I knew the atmosphere when it was played live would be amazing. And it was; the entire venue had a buzz to it that can't be put into words.

This whole album is amazing, I could - and did - listen to it ten times in a row. You should too.

So there are a few things of glee today!

- First of all, I am now officially going to see Steeleye Span's 40th Anniversary Tour when it comes to London. I'm going with my Father, which will probably make a lot of people go o.O, but this is a fam thing. They were the first band he ever saw live, and I have been singing their songs since before I could form sentences because he used to play them all the time, so this is fitting.

- Secondly, there has been new music from both the Panic! boys and the ex-Panic(!) boys. You can listen to both on their Myspaces:

Panic! at the Disco
The Young Veins

I am immensely proud of all four boys, and love the directions they've taken. It's easy to see why they had to split to be true to their music - the Panic! record, 'New Perspective', is a cheerful indie-pop track, while 'Changes' - The Young Veins' offering - borrows heavily from the music of the '60s. Though not, surprisingly, as much from The Beatles as the previous Panic album; this track sounds as though it takes more from bands such as The Mammas and the Papas, The Kinks, The Byrds, etc. With both bands the technical aspects (instruments and vocals) are excellent. Of course, it's possible I'm biast, but I really do think that they're good.

- My third point is slightly related to my second, in that Panic! have finally announced that Ian Crawford (formerly of Panic!'s label-mates The Cab) will be replacing Ryan Ross on guitars for the duration of the Blink-182 tour, which means I can finally glee about it to the WORLD. Except for the fact that I am not going to be at any of the tour dates, because I live on the wrong continent. Fail. There had better be videos on YouTube, people. I'm relying on you.

I think that's enough for now. Back later with more band recs!
