Rules for Chat

- Be respectful. Don't be afraid to ask them tough questions, but make sure that you are 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 the band members' attention. No extra formatting is needed; I'm sure they can read just as well as, if not better than, most of us.
- If someone doesn't answer your question, feel free to ask another.
- This is not a way to ask the band for favors, to ask them if they'll write a song for you or visit you at your house. While I'm sure they'd absolutely love to, try not to hassle them too much.
- You may notice a slight lag on the website while refreshing pages/posting. That's because this band rules and a lot of people want to talk to them and it slows the site down.

My questions for the band

- Thoughts on Victory? Spitalfield did a chat recently and didn't have the most positive things to say about them. What are your thoughts on the label if you can comment on it?
- Speaking of labels, where do you guys think you're going to go next? Do you think that you'll try to go with a major label, an independent label, or might you even self-release your next recordings?
- Looking back on the two full-lengths and the EP, do any of you regret any of the choices made for those albums? Whether it be the choice of single, the lyrics on a particular song, the sound you were doing on the album, or even the artwork, would you change anything if you could? What would it be?

Oh God it's almost time.

What is another word for desperate???

To John and Shaun: How does it feel to be a part of an album (Tell All Your Friends) that has literally changed the lives of millions of kids, and a music scene in general. I've never heard you or any other member of TBS speak of how that felt on a personal level.

Question -
What was the most profound experience you've had as a band and/or as an individual in your musical career?

Thanks for stopping by, guys.

Since your first album came out in 2004, you guys have shown an impressive growth both lyrically and sonically. My question to you is how has your songwriting process evolved since the band's beginning (through influences, studio techniques, etc)?

I wish I could think of a worthwhile question. Maybe one will come to me. Such a great band.

Looking back on it now, do you wish you had released TNTS by yourself?

Thanks for stopping in to talk to us guys. My question is...

Where would I end up if I went East on Sunrise Highway, turned left at Carmen's Avenue, and go right at the first stoplight?

What are your thoughts on future touring? Is anything in the works? And if you could go on tour with anyone, who would it be ideally?
