AK3 fans, Do Not Avoid Getting This Album

A lot of my friends who like AK3 were disappointed with this CD and kind of kept me away from it. 1 month after the release I bought this album, and since then, its probably one of those albums I cant stop listening. I play all the tracks in order,no skipping and it is just an amazing album to relax and enjoy. Deep lyrics and great sound makes this a must have album. Heather and Annabelle are probably my favorite songs since I had gf's with those names.

Just an aside...

I have heard some rumbling from Alk3 fans that they were "saddened" by this album. If you didn't see this coming you weren't paying attention to the career of Alkaline. All of the same influences were there, just not pushed as far to the forefront as this album (the Alk3 cover of "Metro", come on, did you need a neon sign?) And, for the love of god remember, this is a side project, and a @#$!! good one at that. Try to open your mind, painful though it may be...

Matt Skiba comes through again.

Wonderful! Not a word I use everyday, but Matt and his friend there made a very revealing gift to the world. Once again Mr. Skiba has made me feel like I'm not alone in this world, by having feelings of love and hate so intertwined together. Thank you, all of your projects have been completely sucessful in what they were set out to do. Alkaline Trio June 20th @ the Crocodile Rock in Allentown,PA 18106.

About Heavens

Heavens is the musical collaboration between friends Alkaline Trio guitarist Matt Skiba and F-Minus bassist Josiah Steinbrick. Relocating from Chicago to Los Angeles in the early 2000s, Skiba became a housemate with East Coast native Steinbrick. Spending downtime together hanging out and listening to records, Steinbrick one day played Skiba some instrumental tracks he'd previously recorded; instantly falling in love with the songs, the two soon began writing together. Steinbrick initially coming up with the music, the two would lay down the tracks at home and Skiba would later add lyrics. The resulting songs, which heard Skiba taking vocals and Steinbrick handling the instruments, allowed both guys to tap into influences -- like the Sisters of Mercy, Wire, Brian Eno, and Television -- not normally heard in their primary punk-oriented bands. In the span of a week in August 2004, the frame of their debut album, Patent Pending, was finished. At that point, both went their separate ways, Skiba to record Crimson with the Trio and Steinbrick to continue writing for Thieves Like Us. Coming back together in the spring of 2005, they entered the studio with producer Ben Lovett to flesh out the record, though additional schedule interruptions would occur before the finishing touches were complete. Patent Pending was finally done in February 2006 and issued on Epitaph that September. Heavens then embarked on a month of tour dates with Darker My Love opening. ~ Corey Apar
