The interview actually made me feel bad that the band won't have a top 3 or 4 (or maybe 1) album to be honest. Like .. they probably would have definitely been close ... and regardless of my thoughts on anything else ... I feel legit bad they can't experience that because of how this went down. I hope somehow they get some gold records outta this to make up for it. Haha.
I was really looking forward to seeing where they charted, considering 3 full years ago they weren't nearly THIS huge and sold like 45k first week or something. Definitely the only band in the scene that isn't full-on top 40 mainstream that can top the 3 spot Sleeping With Sirens put up earlier this year. Dang shame that all this stuff is gonna throw it off.
also, just wondering, how did you manage to get this interview? I still tend to underestimate the huge influence AP.net and J Tate have on the scene haha. Just seems like he would have been super busy with the tour and album coming out, so cool that he made time for this. great read!
