Update: Apparently this was posted by an ex-member of the band, and the current incarnation of CIWWAF don't have anything to do with it. - JT

Update #2: Shannt has asked fans not to buy the songs. I kinda think he should upload them for free somewhere. That's what I'd do. - JT

A new Cute Is What We Aim For interview regarding new music, members, and upcoming tour can be read here.
From the InterviewAt that point, I figured I couldn't stop. I had to keep going. Then I realized that I had some serious issues with alcohol abuse [and it took] waking up in a pool of blood one day to decide I needed rehabilitation. My world was coming down on me from the depression and alcoholism, and then my baby--my dream-- was falling away. I understood that it was all my doing through my abusive actions with substances. I went to rehab in October and joined some friends afterward to work on their project, but it kind of turned into something more.

Jeff Czum has recounted his feelings toward the end of Cute Is What We Aim For here.
Jeff SaysIt was definitely a big part of my life but it's also a part of my life I'd like to forget. When I was playing in Cute I was not happy. It wasn't who I was. I was surrounded by negative energy 24/7 and after a while it takes a toll on you physically and emotionally. I love playing music but when it turns into a corporation where corporate greed runs your life you can count me out :)
Anton Djamoos on 01/27/10 - 08:08 PM
Update: Shaant has sent the following message, clarifying the actual source and intentions of these songs.

Some solo Shaant songs have made their way onto purevolume.
Shaant's MessageHa! Those are 'demo's' that I never thought would see the light of day. Pretty funny eh? This is not my page nor is it any indication of what I've got up my sleeve. For now I'm just doing my own thing staying healthy. Be easy!
