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.”
— Bryce Sipes (Ex-Decoder bassist), on why he left the band.
sorry your brains can't handle change. when you lose a lawsuit in the court of law you have to change the name. what's so hard to understand? were going to write music and thats that. if you don't like it. piss off.
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.
