Update: Ok, looks like that was an overzealous page admin.
Hey what's up guys. Misha here just wanting to clear up a few things. We actually have a page administrator that runs the Facebook in our off time but it seems he got a little overzealous in that last post.
I am very excited about this album, as it holds an idea and concept I came up with on my own and for six months carried to fruition (and yes Jake, Sean, Gabe and Felipe wrote all the music with me). It is literally, my baby. And when the...

Former The Downtown Fiction drummer and current From Indian Lakes manager, Eric Jones, wrote a blog about signing a record deal, what it means for bands, the misconceptions behind it, and advice for young bands - check it out here.
I think a big misconception amongst young bands is that signing to a label is the end-all be-all. That it is the pinnacle of your career. But here’s the truth: at best, it’s a platform to build off of. I wish someone would’ve told that to me when I had first signed. I hate to say it, but I got a little lazy. The entire band did. We waited for the label to make us rich and famous, as if the label could churn out the hits, put a few 0’s in our bank accounts,...

Releasing Able Bodies on our own was incredible, but there were some things that we felt could have been better for our fans, and partnering with Triple Crown is going to make the next release even more special. They are also a label that supports artistic freedom, which is what's most important to us and hopefully everyone who supports us. Looking...
