THE ARSONS – Too True To Be Good "Too True to Be Good" marks Ernie Parada's highly anticipated return to playing guitars and contributing heavily to vocal duties for the Arsons, as well as the Arsons second full length for Mad at the World. Hardcore enthusiasts will note that the Arsons' last album, "Bridges Down," was the first recorded material featuring Ernie on drums since his days in TOKEN ENTRY. The Arsons continue to pack a melodic hardcore punch in a similar style to the one Ernie and co–conspirator Jason made popular with their last band GREY AREA. The band's signature guitar hooks and vocal melodies collide with an uncontainable energy and vigor that belies their collective experience. "Too True to be Good" serves as a refreshing reminder that melodic punk doesn't need an "emo" tag; not terribly surprising considering that members of the Arsons helped set the standard for the genre with their past bands, and led the BOUNCING SOULS' Bryan Kienlen to say, "Ernie Parada is a genius. Everything he does is better than everything I and everyone else I know does..."
