Good. A few of the things they said in that blog were laughable.
"I don't think everyone in the band fully understood what we had accomplished in such a short amount of time. None of us have been so lucky to start a band and with in 3 months of being together and not even have played a single show, got signed. it was an amazing feeling to go from nothing to touring across the U.S. During our time as Of Machines we went on 8 U.S. Tours and sold more than 8,000+ cds, this is the most i had ever done in my life and probably ever will."
Getting signed without playing a show isn't an accomplishment, and it isn't something to be proud of. They worked for nothing.
"Also this comes from everyone int he band I know we have always wanted to talk about this to new upcoming musicians. If you are in a band or starting a new band please please please don't feel like you need to play the trendy music in the scene or try and sign to the trendy labels."
These guys played the same generic, trite, boring, overdone, watered down, uninspired, scene music as ever other trendy rise records band. So it's funny that they're saying this now.
Unless it's Dance Gavin Dance, one less Rise Records band is always a good thing.
