I would like to preface this review with a warning: I am a total Kellin Quinn fangirl. This may or may not skew my opinion of this album. If you’re familiar with Sleeping With Sirens’ previous two studio albums, you probably anticipated that the third album would either be harder/heavier, or go more pop from their post-hardcore/pop-punk roots. Depending on your personal preference, either one could result in either a “Yippy!” or a “OMG… F!!! WHY!?”

Guitarist/vocalist Tim Jones of the Dallas based hard rock outfit Feel, Never Real, spoke with me recently about the bands newest release, VS. The Sea Of Disease. The band successfully melds tons of melody with a hard rock edge resulting in what I feel is a very solid disc. Here is what Jones had to say about the band, the new disc and the unusual band name.
