The guitars need a bit more distortion and reverb but this track is definitely way way better than NB (I hated NB). I loved that they chose to place odd notes here and there. I like it.

Wow, I haven't been around the boards much lately, but I've come back to say how much I'm liking Glitterbomb.

I knew Brandon has talked alot in recent interviews about how he was pushed vocally on this album, and you can hear it on this track. I hear the edge in his voice I always knew was there but he rarely used. Sounds awesome. Sick bridge, too. Can't wait to pre-order!!

Really wish Ben was more prominent in the mix. I feel like that's something that's been missing from the band lately.

Here's the lyrics to Glitterbomb (at least the best I can decipher)

Glitterbomb

1st Verse

Feels familiar
When the knife gets buried
Into my beating heart
Then I come to
Bloodied, bruised
And cursing my own naiveté
I was on an empty beach
On a screaming all time low
I remember
Meeting you and sharing all these injustices
"Let me help", she said

I shoulda known better
I know
I shoulda known better
Yeah, I know

Chorus
I was your friend
And ended up
Your victim
Victim (2X)

Yeah (oohh)..

2nd Verse

Please release me
Helping hands aren't s'posed to cut off
My oxygen (my oxygen)
And why won't you hear me
When I'm screaming at the top of my voice
Now I remember
Why I'm alone

I shoulda known better
I know
I shoulda known better
Yeah, I know

Chorus
I was your friend
And ended up
Your victim
Victim (2X)

Cause you're a
A glitterbomb
Cause you're a
A glitterbomb


Bridge- (Atmospheric magic [by Kilmore, I assume] /Jose killing it on drums)

There's only you and I in here
And one of us is acting crazy
There's only you and I in here
And one of us (one of us, one of us, one of us...)
Whoo..

(PURE EPIC SOUNDS!!)


Reprise- (Brandon, in all his Mike Patton-esque glory)
I was your friend
And ended up
Your victim
Yeah
Ended up
Your victim

Chorus
I was your friend
And ended up
Your victim
Victim

Cause you're a
A glitterbomb
You're a
A glitterbomb

Is that Kil on the keys in the bridge?

That's the question, Ty. It's probably Kil but it could be Mike. I'm not sure.

Great track. Can't wait until the album drops. Glad to hear the boys just going nuts on a track... hope there are a lot more tracks like this!

Does anyone else get dem feels when Brandon sings "Now I remember why I'm alone" ..? Can really hear that raspy anguish in his voice. I like that his voice and demeanor sounds broken there. A nice touch to inject more emotion in to the song.

Yes!! That raw emotion and edgy-raspy vocal cuts right through!! Love it!!

Glitterbomb: good track! Have to get adjusted to it a bit. The bridge is cool, Brandons voice is a bit raspy at times. Not sure how I feel about that.

Just listened to the new mix of Nimble Bastard. WOW! Its super different. You can actually uear Ben, there's a real difference in the guitar during.the verses and suddenly there's lots of effects and Kilmore. One effect at the end of the bridge.sticks out a bit, but overall it's become a completely different song.

I agree, it's definitely different but while some of the effects and Ben are clearer, a lot of the new effects sounds rushed in and overall the new mix sounds emptier. Not sure about it yet.

Also weird that on Spotify there are both versions, Nimble Bastard and Nimble Bastard - New Mix. I wonder which one will end up on the album.

Really like Glitterbomb - as someone else said, took a bit of adjusting at first to Brandon's voice at first but the song itself just gets better and better as it goes along.

Listening to the new mix of NB, I think I like how clearer Brandon's voice is, the effects on the bridge feel a bit out of place. I like the keys melody on the outro though. Not a fan of the intro, partly because it was such a rocker when the guitar was so loud originally.
Ebbsfleet United fan.

just had a quick listen into the itunes previews for a couple of other tracks.
**Spoiler below if you want stay completly blind**





There was actually kind of "trap"ish beat in one, and almost stoner-rock guitar riffs in another
Oh boy…this will be interesting.
Not gonna listen to anything else before though.

So after listening to the itunes previews I think it's fair to say that it's only 10 "real" songs. One being more of a weird interlude.

Am I the only one showing NB and Glitterbomb as the only two able to be previewed in iTunes? The others are all grayed out.

iTunes doesn't give me a Preview All option. Is there anywhere else to preview the clips?

Does one need to have the pre-order in to do this? I click preview all and get only snippets of NB and GB.
