Bands I Fell Out Of Love With... Can I Fall Back In Love With Them?

 Now, I know this is a similar post to one I did before, but I want to do this one just because I've loved so many bands over the years, and part of the journey of loving bands is falling out of love with them, forgetting they exist and not reaching for them anymore for no reason other than you found other bands! So, I thought why not tell you some bands I've fallen out of love with and see if I can respark my love for them! 

The Amity Affliction - 

I used to like TAA, I thought they were an incredible band and at one point they were the heaviest band I'd listen to. But, the past few years I've forgotten about them, I haven't reached for them because for a while I went off heavier music and would only listen to generic pop-punk bands and alt rock, but I had a bit of a breakdown and thought "Fuck it, let's have a listen to TAA and see if this helps", it really did. I can remember exactly why I loved them, and I love them even more now that I did before. I think they're an incredible band, and I think they're good at what they do! I've well and truly fallen back in love with them after listening to This Could Be Heartbreak again, I got so much love for this band! 

As It Is - 

I hate saying this, I really do because I've loved As It Is since like 2012/2013, since Two Tracks was a thing! Before Blenheim Palace before This Mind of Mine, I loved them, and I still like their music, but I don't reach for it anymore and that's such a sad realisation. Never Happy, Ever After is still incredible along with okay. but The Great Depression wasn't really for me, I didn't like the singles and therefore stopped paying attention and fell out of love with them. However, listening to Never Happy, Ever After in full has resparked my love for them. They really are just that good, they're insane. Fucking love 'em! 

Every Avenue - 

I was a massive Every Avenue fan, I loved them for years, and when they came off hiatus I was so happy! However, my love for them just fizzled out, the flame went out and I do still love listening to them, but I don't reach for them anymore. I still think they're a great band but to say they were one of my favourite bands, it's really sad that I don't love them as much as I once did. I still think they're incredible and listening to Picture Perfect has me loving them again, but I think part of the problem is that there's no new music, it's all old songs that I know off by heart. 

Set It Off - 

I spoke about this in a post before, but I just fell out of love with them. It's a similar situation to that of As It Is, and I wished I didn't fall out of love with them because Duality and Upside Down are the shit! Even Cinematics and Calm Before the Storm are great, just I stopped paying attention. I grew up and left a lot of bands I listened to during the ages of 13-17 behind because they reminded me of a time I wished to forget, but looking back now, it's the memories that are bad not the songs. I really love Upside Down and Duality and I might eventually give the newer stuff a go, but listening to Duality is reminding me how good they are. Maybe they'll be a band that I can listen to a bit more often and maybe slowly work them back into rotation!

Demon on the Run by Four Thousand Miles

  After what feels like forever (when in reality it's only been 6 months), Four Thousand Miles are back! Because it's been so long, and I know over the past few months there's been a big increase in the traffic to this blog, and there are new readers, let me just give you a brief recap on who 4KM are!   Four Thousand Miles are an international rock band, and their name comes from the fact that between Alex M and Lionel there's 4000 miles!  The band consists of;  Alex F - Vocals and guitar Lionel - Guitar Alex M - Drums  Liam - Bass They now have 3 tracks out, Lonely, Reflections and the brand new track Demon on the Run!  For anybody that cares, Four Thousand Miles are my joint-favourite small band and I would probably sell a few organs for them, also will eventually get a tattoo for them when little miss rona decides to leave us all alone.  Anyway, let's get into the thoughts on the new song!  I was super hyped for this song to drop, and I just knew they wouldn'

The Only Way Is Through by Nautical Mile, A Year On...

So, just over two weeks ago, The Only Way Is Through turned 1! If you have no idea what The Only Way Is Through is, then it's Nautical Mile's debut album. I've spoken about Nautical Mile a lot, on my socials and on here. Nautical Mile is in my top bands of all time, they are incredible! They are such a solid band and I have so much love and appreciation for them. I love them that much, that I probably would order their merch, but I'm kinda worried about umm shipping costs and import fees, especially when I'm a student and not on a lot of money.  This album kind of changed my life. It is solid, it is possibly in my top 3 albums of all time, and that takes a lot for me to say.  I found Nautical Mile not long after this album was released, and I've been hooked on them ever since. It started with Wake Up, and now I just love every single song they've put out.  The whole point of me doing this post is to reflect on how I felt about the album a year ago, and compa

Purgatory by Nautical Mile

If you know me, or you're not new around here, then you will know that Nautical Mile is one of my all-time favourite bands. They're phenomenal, and I truly believe they are incapable of making bad music. They're the band behind my joint-favourite album of all time, and I never really shut up about them. So, if you're unfamiliar with them, then Nautical Mile are an Australian pop-punk/post-hardcore band! They're mind-blowingly incredible!  They announced that they had signed to Manic Kat Records, and they dropped a new song on Friday, they didn't really announce it, they just did it.  Straight off, I will admit that I couldn't resist listening to it, and I absolutely love it! I think it's incredible, but I don't want to say too much right now. We'll come back to this at the end.  So Purgatory is similar to some of the tracks we saw on The Only Way Is Through, but the chorus really hits the spot. The chorus goes so far, and Brodi's vocals!  Now
