Celebrate positivity. If leaving the band was positive, then great, but celebrate when this new band was formed as opposed to when everyone gave up on an old band. I just really loved YMAEWK and even if it went south, focus on the new because of the new, not because of being so against the old.
Just my opinion--tear me apart if you like.
I'm not against the old. I'm truly forever grateful for my experiences with the band. I just wanted to give some new music away on a day that kinda sucked last year (which to me seemed positive...though I suppose it could be perceived differently). It's a bummer things went down the way they did, but what's done is done.
