It's funny cause I remember when all the things about Ben fucking over his bandmates came out- I was like "fuck him! I am no longer supporting him!". Since hes been vocal and sincere about the incident, I have turned around and did the kickstarter for Some Things Just Don't Wash Out vinyl (got the 'Merica! variant) and just now purchased the green 7". I hope he keeps things straight and continues to make solid tunes. Congrats on being sober for 2 years too dude!
Thanks friend. It's a long and winding, often steep road but one foot in front of the other ya know? I'm glad to hear you've stuck around all this time. Don't be a stranger come to a show in the spring!
