MTV has written an informative article about how United Nations' new album may not be able to be sold in stores due to copyright issues. There is also great discussion on the ideals behind the band and the response from their myspace feature.
Did you say, "I wouldn't call myself a critic, per se, but in my immediate peer group I'm known to be 'in the know.' As a matter of fact, I think you'd be hard pressed to find someone with a record collection that's half as good as mine. And seriously, that dude just can't sing. AUTO-TUNE central... I did intern in a studio, once, not really sure how it's possible for him to be both out of key and Auto-Tuned but whatever, worst singer ever."
Our friends at AltPress recently did an interview with Geoff Rickly (United Nations) about how the new band came about, the realization that they are screamo, and a new album that is similar to Kidz Bop (seriously). Check it out here. Hey, new album posted on their myspace tomorrow?
