I respect Dave and everything he's doing with Schematic, but isn't it a little shitty of him to continue milking Mae's fanbase to fund his new project? it's not just this either.
I have a few thoughts for you.
1 - This isn't milking the fanbase. He's not putting out some lame Greatest Hits album, he's offering up his time to play acoustic shows online for people still interested. There's a line somewhere that says what is and what isn't milking, but for my money this isn't it.
2 - Why would you think at least a faction of Mae's installed fanbase wouldn't be interested in Dave's new project? It would seem to make sense that if they loved his music with Mae, they would potentially want to know about his new project.
3 - "it's not just this either": Explain?
