I guess I'll be the dick to point out "The Day I Die" was played live last year, so not a 'live debut.' Sorry.

Yeah what the hell! Foo's make sense in that realistically they'd play Verizon Center and the chance to see them in a small GA venue again is worth a premium. Bummed that Lorde tickets are also 100, I figured she'd play Merriweather and they're at least be cheap lawn options.

Caught them in 08 and it was Summerteeth heavy. "Pieholden Suite," "Summerteeth," "Can't Stand It," and "Shot in the Arm." So good.

I don't know man. "Fireproof" is a paint by numbers National song with sad lyrics and melancholy guitar. This has a guitar solo! Swinging drum beat! Matt signing in a higher register! It unmistakenly National but definitely trying some new things and expanding their sound a bit.

"Day I Die" has a reference to Val Jester (at least it did last summer, may have changed now), so there does seem to be some acknowledgement of their past here. Much different than High Violet times when Matt was getting miffed with people incorrectly linking Vanderylle Crybaby Geeks with Geese of Beverly Road. Also, cokeparty, I am here for you on talking National in this comments. Going to be fun summer for sure.

You're not alone. I am firmly in TWFM > High Violet camp.

Did people complain about TWFM when it came out? I remember it being pretty well-received.

I thought 'Lemonworld' and 'Conversation 16' fit the "parody in their level of National-ness" more than anything on TWFM.
