AP.net Chat: Hopeless Records

Posted by - 04:53 PM on 04/12/12
Starting at 5pm (PST) tonight, the staff from Hopeless Records will be hanging out and chatting in this thread. Come on in and see what it's like to work at one of the hottest labels today. Talk about their recent bands, how they find bands to sign, or just what a day in the life looks like for a Hopeless Record employee. I'm sure there's something ya wanna know.

All the label folk will be chatting with blue names. Have fun!

The chat is now over! Huge thank you to the label for doing this with us!

Rules for Chat
Be respectful. Don't be afraid to ask questions, but make sure that you aren't crossing any boundaries of any sort. If you have any hesitations about posting a certain question, odds are you shouldn't post it. Disrespect will not be tolerated and will be met with a deleted post and a ban.

Double, triple, and quadruple posts will be deleted, along with posts that are overly modified to get attention. No extra formatting is needed; I'm sure they can read just as well as, if not better than, most of us.

If they doesn't answer your question, feel free to ask another.

This is not a way to ask them for favors, to ask them if they'll make your voicemail message for you or visit you at your house.

Have fun. The idea is for everyone to talk together and share in a collective experience.

Some Posting Tips
Obviously you need to register for an account to participate. It's free. It's easy.

You may want to add an avatar to your account. It's that little icon by your post and it makes you stand out.

The chat takes place in the comments section of this thread -- it's just like a regular forum thread.

To reply to a post, click the "quote" link on it - and then type your reply. Simple.

To post a new reply, scroll to the bottom of the page and use either the "quick reply" box - or click the "write a comment" button.

If this is your first time on the website, remember that it may take a little getting used to - but we hope we made the experience easy for even first time posters. Hope you have a good time. Don't forget to come back daily to see what kinds of things we have going on during the day. Or follow us on twitter or facebook to not miss any important announcements.

First, thanks for doing this with us ... we definitely appreciate it!

Hmm, my questions:

1) I've seen comments that Hopeless promotes or puts $ behind some artists more than others, is that true and how's it all shake out?

2) What's a regular day like?

3) Can we hear new Yellowcard songs?

4) What are your personal favorite Hopeless releases?
