Err, I don't know if it's fair to write off a label and band for a minor miscommunication issue, which is all this is/was. I don't know your musical tastes, but I'm sure a few bands you enjoy have gotten into issues with this website or others you might visit

Big difference between a minor miscommunication and the way the label (and now band) handled it.

That's not the issue. I understand that originally there was a miscommunication. That happens. But the excessive defensive rebuttals have been unnecessary and sketchy. A "simple miscommunication" should not spark such a response. A simple "There has been a miscommunication. At no point was any of the current line-up in question. There was an alternate obligation that took priority and the band will resume in full" was all that was necessary.

Jeff, hire her. She's a steal

jeff, make sure you save that in a notepad document to use for our future news coverage.

why don't you guys just take down the story? we'll do the same if you want, in exchange for a 10 star review for the next three man cannon album and a bottle of next month's hot new prescription designer drug. fair?

I did reach out to the label. And we got a response ... which also ended up being factually untrue. I also emailed the contact information I had for the band (did not get a response there ... got a blog post instead). It's how we, and hundreds of publications, have handled a developing story for years ... it's process journalism ... it's "hey, this is what we've got sources on" with follow-ups as more information becomes available. And, hopefully, at the end ... the entire story is out there.

On a personal side: I don't think there was ever any need for name calling ... yet both the label, and band, have now gone out of their way to handle a simple "oh, yeah, this is what happened" in arguably a textbook 101 course of how not to handle relationships. Odd way of handling it.

oh okay. cant argue with that.

i can see this giving people the wrong impression of this band and label, but i hope nobody judges what this label puts out by actions in here, considering this is relatively petty. hes putting out great release after great release, including tigers jaw, no matter how high adam is on a daily basis.

I never called you name, nor do I think you're an idiot.

How did you reach out to me? Zack messaged me on facebook about the post asking if it was true and before that I knew nothing of it. You obviously know our publicist, a lot of your staff know me somewhat personally... I never spoke to you, you never asked me anything about this. I casually said to Zack in a facebook chat window that it was probably a school thing, and somehow you're turning that into me presenting false information? LOL?

EDIT: I don't want to imply Zack did anything wrong. He asked me if it was cool if he posted the rumor, I said it wasn't true, he asked if he could post it wasn't true, I said yes. Along with that he posted what I presumed the reason was. I wish he hadn't because I was guessing, but it's not a big deal.

Since I refused to post the "guy in WATIC is gonna fight Cody Payne" twitter story -- there's pent up aggression in the community today it seems.
