You Can't Spell Slaughter Without Laughter
You Can't Spell Slaughter Without Laughter shipped in October 2008, complete with "Crank That." Despite it's allegiance to the genre's themes du jour-relationship troubles flipped into comic mischief, a ticked box next to "Flip Video-ready dance track," running the Art of Screaming highlight reel-the LP was widely panned. Critics slammed the band's kitchen-sink approach, including a half-star flipped bird from Alternative Press. (It must really suck to be Phil Freeman right now.) Less prolific writers latched onto the album's intentional ridiculousness, but it's bizarre why the big wigs missed it. It's all right there on track one. After a packed show, Matt and Nabil head backstage, where they're greeted by an alien. The E.T. convinces the band to play a show on their home planet, the band agrees because there's no shittalkers there. See, music journalists: they're not laughing with you.
