some band from utah that i've never even heard or seen before... weird. but shit, they're terrible. hot topic will love them.

EDIT: i'm slowly accepting the fact that my music won't ever get me anywhere. why? because i'm not a shitty marketable sellout. i'm real, like J-Lo.

I've supported these guys for a while now, but how they went from never-before-signed to a major leaves me confused. They have a few good songs, despite their lyrics and genre, and I hope to see good things from this.

edit: Maybe they became so well known because Escape The Fate have been pushing them forever, maybe though.

Taken from their bio:

"...then embarked on a nationwide tour, in which everything that could have gone wrong did: a tire on their trailer fell off, a show was canceled when the promoter got hit by a car, Jonathan got a concussion playing soccer, Micah broke his collarbone playing football, and they received a $500 parking ticket to top it all off. “I never really believed the whole ‘earn your keep’ thing, but we’ve really paid our dues,” Jeremy says"

What about your trailer and van getting stolen? Or your equipment? Or having more than ONE show get cancelled? One tour is hardly paying your dues.

haha was it a sports tour or something? i don't think paying a parking ticket counts for paying dues.
