Show Me A Leader seems to be about the elections, based on what Myles said in the Q&A.

Crows on a Wire I think is the most intriguing title. Somehow always when this band uses birds as imagery, it's always works out really well.

Crows On A Wire was one of my favs. I can't remember a lot of it now, but I remember really digging it when it was playing. That title also makes me believe Myles came up with it. Seems like him lol.

In the Q&A, when they were asked about the single, Scott and Myles hinted at track 3, 4 and 7, it sounded like.

My Champion
Losing Patience

They may have just been stating their favorites but who knows. Lol

Losing Patience is my least favorite title, and so was Addicted To Pain, so they'll probably go with that one, lol.

With a theme like this there's potential for some awesome music videos... Hopefully they're willing to spend some time on that.

Personally I love the artwork. The colors, the inversion and the defiance are superb! I feel like it captures not just the album title but the theme they seemed to describe in he Q&A, at least from what I know so far.

I might mess with it a little to transition the red bullseye into that area in the background behind his face instead, but I think it's fantastic. \o/
