That's true. TDR records is "non-profit." Not sure how far that actually goes (Mike, the owner, gets none for himself), but the money the label makes is put toward releasing more music.

Mike Hollins is the man, and TDR Records is the most all-about-the-music label ever.

And Chris, I will definitely be downloading. And if there's a physical, I'm getting that, too. Best of luck.

Why do you need to get number one on iTunes to keep playing bass for them? Its not like getting number 1 on iTunes means your band is financially viable, while not getting number 1 on itunes means it isn't. Sure they are related, but they still are inherently different.

Also the 'begging' line wasn't in reference to what you're doing, but instead to what I'm sure some fans will resort to doing to try and help boost you guys to number 1.

It's just the goal I set. I like to set my goals high. I want to see what people think of the songs!

Quinterviews failed because it was unsuccessful. Maybe Quinterviews.com just wasn't cutting it.

Hey anyone who thinks he is exploiting his fans, or using this as a gimmick, and blah blah blah. It takes a lot of guts to do what he is doing. He is putting what he LOVES on the line to go for what he believes in. This is how he makes his living, this how he defines himself. Would any of you put something you love on the line like this? To have to walk away if it doesn't happen. I highly doubt many would, and if you can't see that the dude cares for his band, and band mates enough to go for it... Then just take your negativity and go some where else. Good luck Mr. Fafalios

dick move! I will be buying two on Tuesday to make up for this guy being weird.

seriously, I really don't get the cries of "arrogant" and "bitter," he's just trying to make moves for his band since past efforts were just not enough.

If Lady Gaga can cheat her way to #1 by pricing her album at $1, why not get there by just asking?
