Pretty much true. What special message did Greeley Estates have to give? They really weren't too original themselves. It's like, he just jumped from one mediocre band to another. The only difference is that this one probably will make him more money. It's not like either Greeley or Alesana write music that groundbreaking to begin with.
Plus, when you are a musician who has been making music for a while in a semi-known band, and you are going to join another semi-known band who has a few albums under their belts... I really doubt you are doing it for anything other than a job.
