If this is true, it is more likely to have been said in jest than actually meant. I've met everyone in this band (with the exception of Tomas, who is extremely private. We're talking Jesse Lacey level private here), and none of them are the breed of asshole that charges $50 for an autograph.
I don't know but I not only heard it from my girlfriend but one of the dudes at the show is her friend who actually paid that much for the autograph. I got a shirt signed if I remember right. I don't wanna just opening bash a band, especially one who's music is awesome, but I am not just saying this cause I can. The radio station at Longwood University in Virginia is called WMLU if you ever wanted to contact to confirm what I am saying. Shiny Toy Guns was the headliner and they were giving out signatures left and right. I am not saying the band are not nice people but I have met people at that show and one who paid for that signature cause he was so much of a fan.
If anyone has a beef with what I am saying please just contact WMLU and don't act like I am spreading a rumor. I am not that kind of person but even if I was it would not be about a band that actually plays good music.
