It's called the record business.
It's not that big of a loss though... But, I did actually enjoy their last EP/album. This, on the other hand; is terrible.
Agreed that it's not a huge loss, it's not like they were ever my favorite band, but I also enjoyed the album and EP. I got a t-shirt when I saw them in concert once and now I'm not sure how I feel about wearing it haha, It's just disappointing when you like a band and try to defend them and then they come out and pull shit like this. I never thought of them as being great artists or anything, but I didn't think their next album would be specifically catered to little girls.
