Why is everyone so pissed off? New name, new direction. I have the utmost faith in these guys, seriously.

Not really in agreement with the way either party is reacting in a negative way, though I can imagine it can be disheartening to a band when their "fans" act like this. Why are the fans jumping all over this? If it's Lead Hands, that's the name the guys in the band chose, partially because they could no longer go by Decoder. If you don't like the "name change", grow up. It's a name and they haven't even released the introduction to the band so there couldn't be a comment on a change of sound.

I thought the Decoder debut was alright but was missing a hook to really get me into the album. I really liked both Oceana's LPs and really liked the vocals Keith did on The Tide. I'll be listening to Lead Hands debut when it comes out, hopefully it's this year!

i found this on tumblr, but then again quoting tumblr as a source isn't very credible.

“[i]n regards to my departure from the band as tactfully as I can put it: FUCK THE MUSIC INDUSTRY! FUCK RECORD LABELS! FUCK MANAGERS! FUCK BOOKING AGENTS! FUCK ALL THE DIPSHITS WHO WILL SUCK THE COCK OF ANYONE IN A MORE NOTABLE BAND TO TRY AND GET THEIR BAND BIGGER! FUCK ALL YOU FAKE FUCKERS! All you bands who claim to “love your fans” and say you do it for them and then talk shit on them the second they turn around and say things like “oh, we had a talker”. Fuck you. A million times fuck you. You’re all so full of shit and it’s a game that has nothing to do with music. All the friends I made through this band you know who you are. Everyone else can fuck themselves.”

He really posted that. https://twitter.com/#!/brycesipes/st...57725862371328

I'm stoked to hear what they're going to do. These guys have a lot of potential.

both of these posts are awesome. I hate it when people in bands are hellbent on being politically correct and end up being weak and docile instead of expressing themselves like this. Maybe it's not eloquent, but it's honest and I respect that.

If either of you guys are ever in SF, beers on me.

Stoked on this. This band went through such an unfortunate series of events, it's really good to see them pull through. Bummer they went through the member changes though, but hey, it's a fucking tough industry. Also, I almost didn't even notice that was Keith...
