They were using the fact that they knew a lot of people would think it's possible Brand New news to get attention.
so this is just some band piggybacking off people's wish for a BN album? heh
edit: not a fan of that song, pass

I think a lot of people think this is Brand New, with Vinnie's brother singing vocals.

the only real fact is that it's Andrew Accardi and (most likely) Brian Lane. everything else is pretty much speculation.

I always said these big viral marketing campaigns hurt more than help. Everyone is going to assume it's some new music/super group of musicans they love and then they get pissed and shit on whatever it ends up being. Just release a song and fuck all the nonsense.

Interesting viral marketing for a completely underwhelming project. Awful song. The fact that the thread has over 11,000 posts is disturbing.

They've done a campaign and they put out a song. There's plenty to talk about or criticize.

edit: nothing's happened? what.
To clarify: nothing has yet happened which makes evaluation of the campaign or its result a good idea.
*One* song is out and you don't like it? That's a shame, but has no one heard of the concept of reserving judgment?

You'll notice that no one with positive feelings about the song has bothered to call this campaign a success the way you people have called it a failure, and (off the top of my head, correct me if I'm wrong) no one who's actually participated in the campaign has come out and shit on it now that one song they may not like has come out.

All signs point to being dicks for the sake of being dicks.
But that's just the way I'm looking at it - I'm excited for all this to come to some resolution before I bother to reflect at all, so I'm biased until this is over. If the album's shitty, that'll be a real shame... but fuck, this has been fun no matter what so I won't consider it a problem. It's a shame when people can't just be positive, or at least avoid being negative, for one minute

People are "being dicks" because they used the fact that they knew people would think it was Brand New related to garner attention to it.

As of right now, it doesn't seem like it's Brand New, so people are saying what a waste.
