No offense, but see ya later Chris. #1 spot is quite the stretch. Best of luck though.

The scary thing is that I can actually see these dudes breaking up soon.

Sorry Punchline, but you haven't grabbed me since Action. It's not your fault. You're still awesome.

Since Action this band has been putting out the best music of their career. I'll be sad if Chris leaves but maybe him and I can finally film our ICP cover group

not to sound cynical, and I'm pretty far removed from this band myself but I just think this is one of the worst ways to promote your music I've ever seen. what happened to the love of playing? if his ep isn't #1 on itunes he's quitting punchline and the bass? first it sounds childish. second it's like any sportsplayer vowing to quit their sport if they don't win the championship AND league MVP, or any actor vowing this is their last movie if they don't get the academy award. stupid.

at least do something constructive like try to trend on twitter or something. that's marketing. threatening your fans that if they don't buy your music you're quitting is some sort of blackmail bullshit.

Chris loves music way too much to quit the band. I'll buy the EP regardless though
