This is a band i'm currently working with called Everyone's Fault. It's all mic'd as far as drums and amps go. Let me know what you think of it so far!

My opinion: very good song, not so good mix! I can hardly hear the vocals and the guitars are way too loud. You even have some really nice background vocals that my ears were straining so hard to hear. Once you hear a couple bars of the guitar, it just repeats itself, and the listener's interest goes mostly to the singer(s).

Is there a bass in there somewhere? If there is, I would make it louder because it might boost the energy of the track (because the guitars are strummed instead of the traditional punk power chords)and also provide another texture and counter-melody.

Hope that's useful.

Cool Song. The mix is ok, it's not that bad. Your headed in the right direction as far as rock/punk rock music goes. Some elements are a bit  muddy like the rhythm guitar tone, but nothing that can't be fixed. Overall I thought your mix had good depth.
