Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring,
Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish,
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d,
Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me,
Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined,
The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?
Leaves of Grass (1892)

KIX is finally out with their first album of new material in, well, forever. Rock Your Face Off was officially released yesterday and the album is already blowing up the Amazon top seller list! You need to do your part to help KIX too, so make sure you hit up Amazon or iTunes and buy the record - it's like only $8 bucks. I haven't had enough time with the songs to do a proper review, so that will come in due time. For now, you can check out a full album stream on Loudwire.
Imagine my surprise when I saw that Stereogum picked Rock Your Face Off as album of the week. Of course the snobs in the comments section didn't appreciate the pick or the awesomeness that is KIX but I think you guys know what you need to do: get thee to Stereogum and school the hipsters!
