I'm going to go with that track list is in the order on the record. However, as great as this info is, until they announce an actual RELEASE DATE, this stuff only means so much. But with all that announced, the odds seem pretty high that it'll be sooner than later.

My apologies or rather, it's probably good to point out, this title has been mentioned, but I am still without any concrete evidence from the band this is the case. But for now, I suppose it'll have to do, and if necessary edited.

stream "Orange Vigilantes" here as well as an email submission for a download link (which has failed to work for me for some reason).

When this drops? given they're talking and releasing stuff from it, it could be by June or even earlier. New song is pretty sweet. More to add later.
