Kris Roe has only once came out and addressed the situation from his side, that's all that's really needed. Not response after response from some band that weren't even directly involved or present during the event! The whole thing should be between Kris & Rob as Ataris members.
Hey dude! I'm Joe from the band Patent Pending. I understand and respect your comment. This is not meant to be a slam on you in anyway. If you have a second, please read: You're unfamiliar with our band so i can assume you are even more unfamiliar with me and the way we do things here in Patent Pending. First and foremost you need to know that we treat our band as a family. Someone attacked one of us on stage, the rest of us are going to have something to say about it. At first, we weren't going to post anything official as a band about the situation. Sure, we all made our own comments on our Facebook pages and here on AP in support of Rob, but as a band we had planned on staying out of it. That was the plan until Kris Roe posted a cowardly (and awkward as fuck) video riddled with lies about our guitarist, Rob. Not only did Kris defend his own (outrageous) actions, but he tried to make Rob look like an alcoholic (which is in no way true) to try and save his own ass. We saw that this really hurt Rob so like always we decided to poke fun at the situation to give Rob some piece of mind whilst simultaneously reminding Kris Roe that he has been declared Mayor of Douche Town. (side note: Kris, if you are reading this - Congratulations on your induction into office as the new Mayor of Douche Town. I know that you will take this position seriously and lead D-Town to greater heights than ever thought imaginable by Douches all around the world.
) We don't take ourselves too seriously, we know that at this point this video may be old news to people and we know that we are essentially circus clowns for having posted it, but we stand by it. Just because Kris spoke first doesn't mean that we don't get a chance to say something. By my count the "response after response" that you are talking about is only 1 to 1. Lastly, of course we are slipping in links to our music! Since you are unfamiliar, I'll tell you a small amount more about us. We've been fortunate enough to do what we love for 11 years. We don't make any money off of this band, but one day we hope to. We have no false ideas about the size of our band or the small impact that we have on the scene. A situation like this allows us to get Rob's point across, remind Kris that he is a douche and God willing, gain some new fans along the way. We're essentially the Mom & Pop Shop of pop-punk trying to survive in a Wal-Mart sized world. Any clicks/new fans we can get from this would be great. Again, not meant to slam you, just to let you know that we are just a couple of dudes who are aware of our actions and will jump at the chance to make parody videos where we get to wear wigs and spandex. I hope this helps you understand and maybe even enjoy this video/our band a little more. Have a great day, and most importantly, thank you for realizing how utterly ridiculous Kris Roe's actions were.
