Bayside's 2007 album, THE WALKING WOUNDED, was intended by the band to be a celebration of survival and perseverance in the face of tremendous setbacks, something they became intimately familiar with after the death of drummer John Holohan. Instead of a funereal affair, the album's sound is almost uniformly uplifting, with sweet Everly-Brothers-by-way-of-Bad-Religion harmonies and slickly constructed, radio-friendly choruses on pop-punk gems like "Head on a Plate" and "Carry On." THE WALKING WOUNDED is "emo" in the sense that emotion is the engine that moves these songs. Victory Records has released a GOLD EDITION of the album, complete with three live tracks from an appearance at the Long Island record store Looney Tunes and a DVD complete with a documentary, tour featurette, music videos, and more of the Looney Tunes acoustic appearance.
