* NobodyLovesTheBassist: They don't even have one at the moment and have used live backing tracks since Evan Brewer left. Brandon Giffin ''was'' supposed to track ''In Becoming a Ghost'' but couldn't due to scheduling conflicts, so Keene tracked it himself, and while Jacob Umansky (Painted in Exile) was supposed to do live session bass on Summer Slaughter 2017, his own live session work with Intervals nipped that in the bud and they had to go back to using a backing track.

Umansky eventually wound up filling in for them on several dates in 2018 after the second mass departure.



** Live: [[Music/SuicidalTendencies Nico Santora]], Anthony Barone (A Night in Texas), Julian Kersey (ex-Aegaeon), and James Knoerl were all explicitly live fill-ins, while Bryce Butler started out as this and wound up becoming an AscendedExtra.

* SmallNameBigEgo: As the years have unfolded and the band has gained a reputation for large amounts of ridiculous drama, this is the reputation that Michael Keene has earned: an arrogant manchild and incorrigible diva whose talent as a musician and writer is overshadowed by his laziness, toxicity as a person, complete and utter lack of insight into how his behavior is the cause of most of his problems, and his proclivity for loudly taking credit for the hard work of others, and while drugs did explain some of it, it has become abundantly clear that the bulk of this had little to do with them and a lot to do with who he was as a person.

* NotWhatISignedOnFor[=/=]FanDisillusionment: Explicitly stated by Bryce Butler. As a longtime fan, he was elated at the chance to become a PromotedFanboy, but one he was actually in the band, he quickly realized just how hideously dysfunctional it was and was all too happy to depart alongside Sorceron and [=McKinney=] after their nightmare of a European tour in early 2018.

* WalkingTheEarth: How Ken lives. The man spends the vast majority of his time on the road as either a musician or a tour assistant (be it sound, merch, or just hauling shit and driving), and the weeks between tours are usually spent doing mixing and mastering work for extra cash unless one of his bands is writing and/or recording a new album. It also means that you either can work with him or you can't, as he has the personality that you would expect a road warrior type to have and not everyone can gel with that.

* WeUsedToBeFriends: Michael Keene and Ken Sorceron were longtime friends well before the latter joined, but two years of being in a band together completely destroyed their friendship and every last trace of Ken's good will towards Keene.

* AddledAddict: Michael Keene. While he finally admitted in an interview in 2018 that their difficulties in the mid-2010s were due to his out-of-control drug issues and struggles to get clean, it was a widely-known fact in certain circles well before that.
