To me, it sounds more like an unreleased Panic Channel song.

Who is going to ask Dan whether the lyrics are about Etty? :lol:

Guys, I don't think this is "Embrace The Darkness".
Why? Well, first of all Dan says it's called "Laughing Beats". Even if that was a working title, I think Dan would know the difference.
Before the song, he says they recorded 2 songs, only 1 was finished: this one.
In the Sonny interview, Eric mentioned "Embrace The Darkness" didn't get finished. So I think that's the other song, not this one.
Yeah it's not.

I misunderstood. Maybe a mod can change the title.

It's probably good that we can't hear the vocals. can a song called "laughing beats" be good...is it possible?

I also think we should try to get this news to places outside the forum. Might stir up more of an appetite for it, put pressure on someone to let it loose.
let's be realistic. no one really cares except for a few here.

Nobody ever got some news about the two supposed P4P songs recorded with Mike Watt several years ago ?

Would prefer to hear ''Little Me'' n whatever else p4p may've recorded. ''Laughing beats'' sounds like some sort of Strays era outtake, Dave's playing is really mundane in that clip.

yeah, with that in mind, why weren't Dan allowed to play more than 10 seconds of it? They act like they're U2 or something. Pretty funny.

They seem concerned about playing any vocals. I'm sure Perry has something to do with it. He probably doesn't want anything he created with Eric being public. You know he's petty as hell.

Laughing Beats = Embrace the Darkness. Dan just used the working title probably because that’s still what it’s called in his mind. EOD was 100% the only song completed, per the Sonny interview (I don’t feel like jumping through hoops to embed on mobile).

https://youtu.be/It8lUhX3000

https://youtu.be/LQHml2L8dXY

“I’ll Protect You” - the bassline ended up in Eric’s song “Beneath the Ground”, possibly along with Perkins’ drum track. There isn’t a third one. It was just those two that were worked on.

Pre Vocals:

Eric - hey guys this instrumental version sounds like old school Jane's. Let's call it Embrace the Darkness.

Post vocals:

Perry - hey guys I added my vocals and renamed it Laughing Beats!

Eric - I fucking quit

Does anyone else remember reading additional lyrics for this song besides the ones Perry tweeted in 2009? Something like "laughing beats crying"?

Man I really want to hear the whole song- especially the outro. I also want to hear Eric's approach on bass. Those ten seconds sound way more interesting than anything on TGEA and they might as well play the whole things at this point.

Indeed.
It's a cross between Underground, Price I Pay and Strays...

yes :cool:

I can write an accurate review of any album with just 30 sec snippets on amazon
with 20 secs I can tell if the album is good or not
10 secs are not too much but they still give me lots of clues
