Look forward to whatever they do next - great young band.

I've heard they've been bought out -- but not for that amount.

I can't help but feel like this might really set the band back a few steps, in this day and age where labels are cutting costs left and right, I can't imagine someone stepping up and paying the buy out back (it was privately bought out, not by a label) and all the recording, marketing etc costs.

I lurk another message board where Jordan posted the following which is what made me write the above:

also, yes. this does put more pressure on the band to write and release another record. this shit sucks. these are things that can make you question trying to turn a band into a serious thing, and i have questioned it all summer. i am excited to be home and away from set your goals and eulogy for an over-due hiatus, and i hope out of all this we can get some more songs to those who also have feelings invested into set your goals.

i want for syg to be able to release another cd, but if it is forced in any way by money or anything at all, it will not feel the same.

please disregard the unearth statement. i do not know that for fact and should not have mentioned that.

yeah they are. pretty much my favorite band of all time.

if the band wants to sign with another hardcore label, it should be be bridge 9. they have done wonders for bands out there that have had label issues in the past(H2O, Crime In Stereo, New Found Glory).
