People criticize for the sake of criticizing. There's some fun in it. It's not as fun to appreciate something for what it is. If anything, I guess these days what makes something good is if you can...

Agreed.

What sucks is that some of the hot garbage they have supporting them actually bring a bunch of kids out who in turn spend a ton of money on DGD merch and what not. I hated every opening act...

Heard the 60 second clips, they've taken their overall musicality to another level, beyond just "post-hardcore". It felt like listening to a more grown up and well traveled version of Happiness....

Bands play based off what their agents negotiate with promoters. It's part of the business, whether it's mainstream or "scene". As a band, it would be bad business to just play an extra half hour as...

I brought it up to both Mingus and Feerick on last year's tour. They soon added Zoloft halfway into the tour.

Personally, if a ticket for DGD is only $15-$20 and they're playing clubs in front of...

What about when Scott Raynor was let go? I say this band his been in shambles for 17 years.

Things would have been sooooo much better if he stayed in the band and Travis never joined, am I right?...

Yup. We can at least among a few of us is encourage the band with thoughtful, deep, analytical discussion about their music and careers. That would help make up for all the "scene" kids who either...

Ironic.

When I mentioned to Kurt Travis how Death Star and Happiness are now considered the band's best albums among fans, Kurt said something to the extent of, "Really? I'm like Van Gogh, I'm only...

I just ordered the blue vinyl. They're all the same weight and both colors look just as rad, so the fact that one variant had a pressing of 700 while the other variant had 300 didn't make a big...

I spoke to Mike Einziger on the phone back in October. New stuff is definitely very rock oriented.

If anyone's got questions, please feel free to ask. I'm one of the admins on the...

Jonny x Kyle x Midnite - The Blueprint For Going In Circles

"Give Me a Museum and I'll Fit It" might be the best song Jonny Craig has written, no joke.

Kyle Lucas is pretty damn good rapper. He...

Sometimes it's more about the entertainment factor than the quality of the music itself.

Just because YOU don't give a shit doesn't mean that everyone else doesn't. If people didn't give a shit about his old records, there wouldn't be any promoters around to book tours for him.

Best post I've read in this thread thus far.

On a side note, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Sublime could be in the conversation by 2017. I'm a diehard fan though, and I'm sure I'm in the...

I don't mind screaming the way Jon does it now. He's very particular about how his parts fit onto the music. His vocals are much more audible now too. Jon's wordplay on the last two records was...

Bands left and right are either breaking up or going on hiatus, while DGD just keeps putting in work.

7 studio releases in under a 10 year span. That's one hell of a run.

The point of having Slaves would obviously be to have Jonny, Kurt, and Tilian all share the stage together at some point. Even Kurt alluded to the idea that if they were all on the same bill, there...
