Many people would have thought we’d have the new A Day To Remember album, You’re Welcome out by now. When the band first announced the new record way back last August, they sent fans and media into a frenzy by announcing it’ll be released in November 2019. November came, and went, and all we had were two boppin’ tracks, ‘Degenerates‘ and ‘Resentment‘.
Fast forward to April 2020. The world is…broken, isolated and could probably do with a new ADTR record right now. Well, we still don’t have a release date for You’re Welcome but, the band have decided to subside us all with another new track. Better than nothing, I guess. ‘Mindreader’ is the latest single to arrive from the pop punk heavy hitters, and it’s mildly on another level from the previous songs we’ve heard. What’s lacking is the pummelling monster breakdowns we love, and in place we have a pop-driven guitar riff driving the song. In places, it does sound very Fall Out Boy, and I felt there was something missing here. But still, some ADTR is better than no ADTR right? Righhttt?
Anyways, here’s hoping the next announcement from Camp ADTR is an album…
