Devin Ingelido, a former member of VersaEmerge
, has posted a blog calling out ... well, basically everyone. The full thing is in the replies.
Finally, we met with the owner of Fueled by Ramen, had dinner with him and was convinced that label was the right fit. This is where there is much speculation. I can tell you that I feel signing with fueled by was such a mistake. A 360 deal doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing if the band is going to be pushed. The more money the label makes, the more the band makes. Except the label has a hand in every pot.
I feel the band was signed to not create competition for Paramore.
