In the wake of current events, Bayside are offering fans a limited edition, specially designed hurricane relief t-shirt. Proceeds from each shirt will benefit the Greater New York American Red Cross in their efforts to help those still struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Update: The chat is now over. Thanks to the band for taking the time to talk with us tonight.
The guys from Bayside will be chatting in this thread at 8 pm EST/5 pm PST. Feel free to talk about the covers EP that will be released on Tuesday, their current tour with Taking Back Sunday or anything else you might like to discuss.

I went and saw the Bayside/Saves the Day tour the other night and it got me thinking a lot about longevity. How did those two bands last so much through one of the most progressive times in the music industry? How did they survive against the elements of death, label issues and pleasing longtime fans? Hit the replies and let's talk about not what makes a hold any sort of longevity past "putting out good music." What makes you continue to see your favorite bands year after year or multiple times a year at that?
