Judging by the music video, the tuning for Wouldn't You Rather is Drop C. You can see Mark playing a Bb on the third fret of his fifth string at 0:27.

So after listening to it a bunch of times - I've realized that this is in a form of Drop C. But the ending chord with the top 2 strings ringing out like they do in C tuning is undeniable.

So what I'm thinking is that it might be in CGCFGC, or DADGAD a whole step down. You still have all the capabilities of Drop C that are necessary for the riffs in this song (5th fret harmonic on the 5th string for the main heavy riff), and you can play that ending chord I described in my previous post (it would just be played as 111000, instead of 133200).

Now this is all unconfirmed until Mark or Myles can explain what it is on Twitter or in person. Who wants to tweet at them?!

Maybe Mark is in Drop C and Myles is in C Standard?

I’m 95% positive it’s in C Standard, not Drop C. The last big chord that rings out in the end is what an F major chord with the two highest tuned strings sounds like tuned down to C. I think the technical name of the chord is Cmaj7#11, but anyhow, that’s the chord - that’s the giveaway this is in C tuning.

You're the man!

See the most recent post I just made recently about this. But to the above poster's credit, maybe it's a thing where they're both in Drop C and C Standard. That's not outside the realm of possibility.

I too wondered if they were in in both tunings.

Would Pain No Mind be in Drop C#/Standard C#?

There's 2 covers on YouTube and both guys say Drop C#.

Unsure if it has been mentioned, but I'm 99% sure that Dying Light is in the same weird tuning as This Side of Fate. I can hear a droning F# in the beginning (5th string). Could be wrong though

My guesses for some of the tunings:
One Life - Drop C
Native Son - Drop B
Indoctrination - Drop A#
Clear Horizon - Drop C
