I once bit a big one
A big one once bit I
I once bit a one so big
That I thought I'd probably die

Fucking class lyrics.

Sorry to be negative but I think Engerica are actually getting worse...unlike Reuben who are getting much better!

The first time I saw Engerica support Reuben I thought they were bloody class! I've also seen them support a few more times and at a headline gig and everytime it has been great! The two singles they released before getting signed were also fab, good solid tracks with excellent B-sides. And then... what happened?!? They get signed and release a B-side! When I first heard it I thought WTF they must be running out of ideas!! The old version of 'My Demise' is also much better IMO.

And now... This new single is quite frankly awful! It doesn't feel like an Engerica song at all! I've listened to it over and over and tried to like it, but I just can't. I know this type of sound will probably get them more success, but its just not Engerica... and it doesn't sound like a musical progression to me.

This is just my opinion ok, so don't start hearling abuse at me. Maybe I need to see them live again to once again appreciate there music. But for now it's just not doing it for me.

Sorry Guys Sad

Err... in fairness, Roadkill is at least two years old. That's about when it appeared on a Rocksound (?) CD.

Ok I didn't know it was an old song... but doesn't that say something? The fact that the two singles Engerica have released since being signed have been a B-side and 2 year old song!

What happened to writing new songs guys?

release/re-use some classics before they get lost in the mists of time then whack out a clutch of hot newies on the album ?

can't think of any other bands who've done anything like that Rolling Eyes

My Demise was a proper single before it was a b-side, but it was their first ever single and thought it deserved to be heard once they had a bit of (be it minor) success.

It's hard for any band to keep gaining fans and still let their songs get the recognition they think they deserve. I think what Engerica are trying to do are air out all the old stuff before releasing the news songs as proper singles. And it will happen.
