 I haven't heard the whole album yet. However, I have heard "Miss Murder" and it sounds like they're kind of going back to their punk roots, but I might be wrong with that sweeping generalization. Anyway, just as point of information, Davey Havok had to get surgery for his vocal chords sometime after "Sing the Sorrow" (because he really didn't have a screamer's voice and his attempts probably caught up to him). That's probably why it took about 3 years to come out with an album. I'd imagine that a person getting vocal surgery can't just start going out screaming his head off within a year of that kind of operation.

 That makes sense. Thanks for the heads up. If you're interested, Havok's back to screaming his face off on the second song on the album ("Kill Caustic").
