    Song is AMAZING as all of their songs are!!!!!!! love you guys. Your oldest fan, Ron tried to give 100 stars, can’t!

  • Dina Romeiro

    It’s incredible, but I expected no less. Dedication, hard work and passion was put into this and it shows. Keep up the great work you guys <3

    PMB didn’t made a bad song…i love this so much

  • Adrian

    I miss the screams, hope the rest of the EP is heavier….

    • sheenah

      Screaming is for people who can’t sing. She can sing…I guess she should ruin her voice with talentless screaming …

    • http://www.facebook.com/mike.dini Mike Dini

      I want the screams too! The screams make PMB less mainstream. We cannot have yet again just another rock and roll band with a girl singer.
      Don’t get me wrong tho, Brooklyn is an amazing singer!! one of my favorites EVER and the band is solid!!
      But definitely love PMB heavier!
      This is a sick song tho. Love it, but go HEAVYYY!

    • jay

      I agree………just to add I felt it was to generic…..was hoping for more…..=(

  • Sheenah

    Let the music speak! Awesome fucking song!

  • robbie

    A well produced generic rock track..meh..

    • Shelby Blackburn

      It’s only Rock n Roll relax dude.

  • Lucas

    This is amazing. I’m so glad they ditched the scene crap this is the big rock band they should sound like. Fuck yes!!!

  • Shelby Blackburn

    Congrats PMB. Straight up rock n roll needs to see the light of day again!

  • http://www.facebook.com/wesley.s.oxendine Wesley SasukeUchiha Oxendine

    yes new song this is so awesome

  • Mick Birchall

    Love this tune, Love PMB, they have taken what worked with the fisrt album and applied it here, well made tune, can’t wait for the EP

  • Zach Smith

    Completely badass!! I’d expect nothing less from the likes of Shaun Foist and PMB!! Keep kicking ass and taking names!!!!!

  • Bobby

    Disappointing…….I loved the mix of screams and vocals in the album but by the sound of this song they may have ditched the screams which makes them sound like any other generic rock band.

    • Anon

      There is nothing more “generic” than screaming….

      • http://www.facebook.com/mike.dini Mike Dini

        screaming is generic now? You are crazy!

    • http://twitter.com/Cruesifyed23 Lüke

      PMB did say they had a new sound. and the band is maturing. but this is just one song off the new EP.

      • http://www.facebook.com/mike.dini Mike Dini

        Lots of bands that “mature” tend to change it up TOO much. A variety of bands start off with an amazing album and then they decide to totally switch it up and change their sound.
        If I like a band..I kinda want the band to stay the same?!
        I understand talent is talent..but if I like post-hardcore/screamo and all of a sudden it turns to punk rock..its like WTF! ahaha

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=739035616 Ian Amis

          This is far from Punk Rock this is old fashioned Rock N Roll.

          • http://www.facebook.com/mike.dini Mike Dini

            haha I was trying to make a drastic comparison. If people like one style…why change it to another? Heavy guitar/screams into Rock and Roll…weird switch! We don’t need another Paramore. Boring!

        • http://twitter.com/Cruesifyed23 Lüke

          i know what you mean. and i totally agree with you. On Brooklyn’s facebook she said that the “Mannequins” EP goes in different directions, so there may be some screaming in it. I did hear the song ‘Mannequins” off the EP Saturday night when they did their StickAM chat. it was awesome. it was Acoustic, but it sounded amazing. :)

    • http://www.facebook.com/mike.dini Mike Dini

      I totally agree dude!! The mix they had of screams and vocals before was perfect…In this song if they threw in a “breakdown” with a few screams here and there…even maybe screams as backup at certain parts it woulda hit the spot!! Either way sick track tho!

  • http://www.facebook.com/bloodyblanco Natalie Kongsmark

    omg, crying

  • Jenni

    WOW this is really amazing and I’m sure that rest of the EP will be as well

  • http://www.facebook.com/nima.akbarpoor Nima Akbarpoor

    lovable, adorable song

  • http://twitter.com/Cruesifyed23 Lüke

    This song is so amazing! I cant stop listening to it! going on 15 plays by me so far. PMB is in my top 3 favorite bands ever! I will always support them! I am happy i preordered the new EP! :)

  • Chris40081

    I enjoyed thst song more than I thought. This persuaded me to get the ep.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mike.dini Mike Dini

    Absolutely amazing track! But where’s the HEAVYYYYY?

  • Jay

    to generic…hope the rest is better

  • Femmetalguy

    With, or without the screams, Brooklyn has an amazing voice, and the band completely compliments that with their play. Excellent tune! It rocks!
    Love the screams, and love this too! Can’t wait for the release! Just wish it was a full release instead of an EP. All in good time I guess!

  • Jay

    way to generic……I hope the rest is much better!

    Bravo – love it! The best one yet!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Shelby Blackburn

    I’m screaming now reading all this stupid shit about her screams.

    Screaming is for scene teen bands..can we grow up please…she screams some on the new record but thank GOD it’s not GENERIC SCENE bullshit.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mike.dini Mike Dini

      Screaming is part of a bands musical style these days. Screw these stupid words like “scene” ! That means nothing.
      So if screams are “scene” then this lame rock and roll style is “generic”.
      Good bands don’t need to change. Lots do, and then they lose their true sound.

      • Shelby Blackburn

        Mike I love the old PMB but we are a very small group of people…She screams..it’s just not coupled with predictable breakdowns..it’s like a vocal accent…you know like Steven Tyler did 30 years ago…nothing new about screaming…..it comes and goes…if music is generic just because it doesn’t have screams in it…well then I don’t know what to say..this is all so rediculous about the screaming…

    • http://twitter.com/Cruesifyed23 Lüke

      I totally agree Shelby! I love the new song. I can not stop playing it, i love the direction PMB went. The new Ep will be amazing! :)

    • JaVieR

      LOLOLOL! your telling people to grow up while ur calling people scene just because they listen screamo music? hahaha!

      USE UR BRAIN BEFORE YOU U USE UR MOUTH ( in this case fingers ) =}

  • ScottFerg311

    The new song sounds great. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the EP!!

  • Donni

    Wow, not what I expected. sounds like it should be on Easy listening not metal. This band had such a unique sound, what happened?

    • http://www.facebook.com/mike.dini Mike Dini

      Thank you! My point exactly..take away the uniqueness..change the style..and we have yet another rock band with a chick singer. :(

  • jay


  • http://twitter.com/MasterGio Giovanni Deldio

    Its good. Her voice sounds amazing. Yes, some screaming would be nice but the band has to grow and mature. Im sure there are heavier tracks on the album. Regardless, this is avery solid track. Can’t wait 4 the album!

  • poshreany

    Love it…

  • http://www.facebook.com/Shady.Raymond Jason Raymond

    I Love this song!!! Cant wait to get the EP. PMB is amazing!! <3

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=739035616 Ian Amis

    Screaming has become generic because of peoples obsession I swear.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mike.dini Mike Dini

      You are confused. Rock and roll is what is generic.

  • sammi

    REALLY after all the hype this is what we get???? Bummer!!!!

  • johnny

    great song cant wait till the album i do however would like some screaming but still love the song

  • m/

    Her vocals now are more suited for her. I liked the screams too but c’mon!! This band will be huge

  • keith verdee

    A Nice taste of “Solid Rock Music” Brooklyn will be the next big Female Lead!!!

  • Jim

    Awesome! I can’t wait to hear more of you guys!

  • Don

    How old are you guys crying about the screaming? 12? 13? Exactly. there’s more musicianship on this song than anything else they have ever done. Go try to sing it, I dare you. This band obviously isn’t trying to please you little scene kids anymore. That’s why your favorite bands are NOT on the radio. Now go push your bangs to the side, stick your gay ass slippers on, and shut up.

    • HardRock/HeavyMetalFan

      I’m with you dude the screams definitely make the song better, its great without it I’m sure but it adds a sense of rage and emotion.

  • tom gray

    please, the screams are so over it’s pathetic!!!

  • Jarrod

    So much talent, I love this band dearly, and I have since 2009!

  • Gaby

    like a boss!! NICE!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/rich.elkerton Rich Elkerton

    Hells to the Yeah! Go get ’em kid. You’re killin’ it! Band’s great as well.

  • jessica


  • Tim

    So I have to say …I’m super disappointed. What happened this sounds sooo watered down. Sounds like a bellow average….generic…rock band…..not good.

  • Kayla

    Are people judging the whole album on this one song? That’s not right and they sound amazing to me. Also, they posted a video of Shaun’s drumming during a live show of Torture and Brooklyn was screaming. so calm down, I’m sure there is still screaming on the record. If that is all you listened to them for, then I don’t see how you’re a fan because you don’t appreciate everything the band has to offer. Also there are main stream post hardcore bands too so screaming doesn’t necessarily make them “not mainstream” but if people truly care about “mainstream” then your hipster ass needs a reality check.

  • HardRocker

    I love this website I’m finding a new amazing artist every day I almost don’t have enough time to look into everyone! But this band is amazing, even without the screaming, she’s got a hell of a voice

  • Chris R.

    I got to see this band live with Alice Cooper & Marilyn Manson. I imagine they wouldn’t be invited to be on the bill if they weren’t worthy. They were fantastic & I bought the album during their signing after the show. Brooklyn signed my cd. She is pleasing to the eye & I find it a turn-on to see her sing softly then belt out a heavy metal roar in the same song. Different & refreshing! I applaud their creativity & look forward to their future albums. They are very young, so give them a chance to keep improving. Highly recommended!
