By this point, y’all know how much I love Almost Kings and you’ve either checked them out or you haven’t. So this blog is simply going to be a lot of pictures, and a video, from this past weekend. 🙂 Enjoy!
Within Reason — “Here Comes the Light,” from the album After the Crawl (2012).
I chose this because today is my best friend’s birthday and Slipknot is her favorite band…
Slipknot — “Wait and Bleed,” from the self-titled album (1999).
Let me start off with this.
I love Jacob. So much. And these five…
I love the way Ryan Yunker [closest to the camera in the photo above] always likes my statuses on Facebook.
And the way we can talk about Avenged Sevenfold constantly.
I love the way Kevin Compton [third from the front in the same photo] told me I was one of his favorite people.
Speaking of the band, I love Almost Kings. That’s them with the broken down van. Ha!
I love this goofball.
I love Lynam. And Within Reason. And The Velcro Pygmies. And Rearview Ghost. And Shallow Side. And Super bob. And Avenged Sevenfold. And Alter Bridge. And Pink Floyd.
I love music, okay?
I love this girl.
And the fact that she sent me a text telling me to be careful and that she loved me one of the last times tornadoes came through Alabama.
I love riding in a car with her, windows down and music up!
I love Harry Potter.
I love books!
I love watching movies with my dad.
And cooking with my mom and my brother.
And hanging out with my best friend Tiffany and her husband and her adorable daughter.
And how cute my cat is when she cleans between her toes.
And dancing onstage.
And Alabama football.
I love vegging out with my girls, eating junk food and mocking lame horror movies.
I love video games.
I could go on and on, but I’m going to stop here. Sometimes, I think it’s good to sit down and list the things you love and are thankful for, just to make sure they still outnumber the negatives in your life. Right now, I’d say I have a lot of reasons to be here. =)
I ordered a copy of Super bob’s self-titled album and I was sent the newest release, Killer, instead. I debated whether or not to message them and exchange it for the one I’d wanted. I decided not to, since I figured I would have ended up with Killer eventually anyway.
Greatest decision I’ve ever made!!!!
Seriously, the album is just so great. I’m in love with it. Rarely does it leave my CD player now. 🙂 I suggest everyone go buy a copy.
Super bob — “Killer,” from the album Killer (2015).
I am so excited about the new Tremonti Project albums, Cauterize and Dust. It is disappointing that the former will not be released until June 9th (I was hoping for early May, so I could hear it before I see them), but I’m sure it will be well worth the wait. Currently, there is no set date for Dust, though Tremonti has said it will likely be within a year of Cauterize.
Here is the first single from Cauterize, entitled “Another Heart.” Turn it up!!!!! \m/
This has always been, and will always be, one of my top five favorite songs by Almost Kings. I can’t even explain the thrill I get as soon as it starts. ❤
Almost Kings — “Legend,” from the album Filthy Nice (2009).
