So we have Show Me A Leader, Cradle To The Grave, The Last Hero and This Side of Fate.

Let's put money on which one Myles won't be able to deny something :D

How many times has he done so already?

Loving all the news etc!! Ok, I'm gonna be pedantic here but I don't like it when bands have similar sounding songs. "Show Me A Sign" and now "Show Me A Leader"? Meh, I'd prefer something different but its the music that counts :)

What's wrong with that? The subject matter will be totally different, I'm sure.

I'm kinda with him on that one... I probably would'nt love to see 'Watch Over Us' or 'Farther From Anything' as song titles either.. It's nice to give each and every song their very own individuality.

Show Me A Sign is one of my least favourite AB songs so I'm sure I'll listen to this new one alot more and not even make the correlation

Interesting artwork! Gonna take a bit of getting used to given the change of style.

Cool song names, too.

Just noticed the one Jim just shared has the "old" AB logo on it, rather than the new one as was posted on the Facebook page.

I'm guessing Jim made that to see how it looked with the old logomajig.

We got a decent photo of the posters given out last night.. I boosted and played with it a bit in photoshop

We shared the actual artwork on our FB and I just wanted to see what the old (better) logo looked like on it

Ahhh, that makes sense. I think your version with the old logo looks awesome, Jim. I can see why they changed it up for consistency though.

That cover looks more like some Punk Rock album cover. The new logo fits definetly better. And I already wondered for how long they could drag on that grungey style, nice to see the band heading into a new direction. And now i want to listen to that new direction.
