Universal BLOCKS Youtube Anberlin performance...good move?
Universal BLOCKS Youtube Anberlin performance...good move?

I called it the very first time I heard Cities. There was just NO way that Anberlin wouldn't get signed to a major after they put out that record. When I found out that I was right, I was stoked. Right now I'm not so sure.

Aside from some already crappy issues Universal is having with the release of Anberlin's new album, they are starting off on the wrong foot with promotion. Firstly, I haven't seen nearly as much promotion for Anberlin on Universal as they had on Tooth and Nail. Anberlin is a band that have always had a big and very radio-friendly sound while maintaining massive amounts of musical integrity. They deserve a lot more than what they've gotten so far.

But here is my actual beef...(the other stuff sucks, but this is what's getting me at the...[read more]

I don't think Universal is being a very good label at the moment. I mean, New Surrender leaked over a month early. I don't believe Cities leaked until the pre-orders were out. I feel really nervous for Anberlin--if this album doesn't do what Universal wants, then that means all of this hard work to get here has gone somewhat wasted.

I think it's completely ridiculous that it's apparently no longer acceptable to post a live video of a band on Youtube. It's not like you're stealing anything - it would be understandable if you uploaded a video and put a studio recorded song in the background, with the intent of letting people hear the song for free instead of buying it. But it's a one-of-a-kind LIVE PERFORMANCE, you can't go buy it in a store. It makes me sick that these songs are "owned" by people who have nothing better to do than track down harmless live videos on the internet and prevent the band's fans from watching them.

I know you're not a big fan of live videos, but what is the problem with putting up live performances from concerts?

Why does Jason Tate sound like a complete and total ASSHOLE in almost every post I've seen? Get the fuck over yourself you prick!

And as for this blog, brilliant. This machine needs to die a slow, painful death. Anberlin is too good for this.

To put on way too much makeup and write all over nike shoes hosting your arm like you're in the 4th grade again? Are gel pens making a comeback too? Seriously, when you grow up you are going to look back at this point in your life and be embarrassed for yourself.
