Kind of a cool signing. I'm still curious in the direction FBR is moving towards since John Janick left.

Looked to see what label they were on before this. Had no clue they were on Roadrunner. They're also touring again and the venue they're playing in KC is a lot smaller than their last couple shows here. Weird.

Weird. Didn't expect FBR to step in at all, but I'm pretty excited for the new album.

I mean, if I had to describe it I'd say they are going for "quirky pop bands that can cross over into the mainstream"

I mean, they had one minor rock radio hit with Cough Syrup and they seem to have gone off the radar for a while, so it makes sense they are trying to rebuild the momentum. FBR stepped in because they saw the potential and if there is anything they are good at it is pushing bands like this through to the mainstream.

Also, I haven't looked at the FBR roster in a while, but my guess is that Cobra starship is the next band to fall if they fail to produce another GGGB size hit. You make me feel... Was definitely not enough to keep their momentum going.

"My Body" had to have been a way bigger single than "Cough Syrup". I still hear the song used in countless ads.

I think it's pretty common for a mid-sized band to play a tour of venues they're typically too small for before an album drops.
