Degenerates is my shit. It’s all I’ve listened to all day. I know there’s a lot of discussion going on about the sound and the apparent label signing with Fueled By Ramen. Lots of mixed ideas.
I’m gonna keep this as short and to the point as possible. ADTR have managed to over the years develop a very signature sound with their blend of pop punk and metalcore. Some songs fusing the two together, some being just pop punk, some being a bit heavier. Hell, they write acoustic songs too that are good af.
If they are in fact officially signed with Fueled By Ramen, I in no way whatsoever believe that it’s a bad thing. After everything they’ve dealt with in the past with Victory, I can’t imagine that they would let another record label tell them what to do and not to do. They all seem very excited to release the new music and are genuinely happy about it.
Degenerates is definitely a radio friendly tune, (I’ll be surprised af actually if my rock station even plays it considering I never hear ADTR on the radio and I’m just a few hours from Ocala) but it’s ADTR keeping their signature sound. Just with a bit more pop punk. Maybe we’ll get a heavy single next, who knows. I think the new album will show them experimenting a bit more with sounds.
Personally, I can’t wait for what’s still yet to come. Let me know what you guys think!
