I think you are confused w/ some things. For one, they have nothing to do with the record Hot Topic put out. Universal owns the masters & that's where the embarrassing Hot Topic version came from. Also, they have no reason to hate themselves. Their band took them much further than the majority of bands out there.
I think you misunderstood what I was saying. I'd just be dissapointed if I kept creating music I was proud of and people only liked the first thing I put out. I love that they did a tour and a vinyl on it, it just has to get frustrating living off of past success and not being able to forge forward. Kind of like a one hit wonder but with an album. There's so much hate for anything new Finch tried and it's a shame as to me they did some good things since this album.
