When we started, we were very fortunate to start with a very successful band. That took us from having no distribution to having independent distribution.

Just come out and say it. You owe your existence to Alesana.

Ehh, hopefully this label signs some better bands soon, they've got a pretty shitty roster as of now (minus The Morning Of), and that Everyone Dies In Utah album that came out this week is simply horrendous.

Hopefully TMO leaves this label and finds someone that will REALLY support them. They did get their european tour, which is a great thing for them. but hopefully there is a label willing to devote a serious amount of time to promoting the new record they are working on.

I still can't believe Tragic didn't put them on tour when the album came out (it was like 3 months later, after the "hype" Tommy talked about had already fizzed out). If they were in the middle of their best economic year, and are sitting on an album they believed to be phenomenal (the public's general opinion as well), how do you not promote the hell out of that band? It's a missed opportunity on their part, and an utter disappointment for TMO.

pretty correct in that matter. the drama between Tragic Hero and TMO is confusing to me.

In other news, what the hell was up with the Flyers tonight? Bob needs to stop giving up the soft goals ugh

i was unable to watch the game unfortunately, but from what i've read so far, he seemed to be making the saves he needed to? apparently the offense never found a rhythm because of all the penalties in the first? glad versteeg made a difference tonight tho. your input would help me understand better these things more haha

ha Versteeg did have a good game (2 goals) and Bob did play well, except for letting in a soft go-ahead goal with 4 minutes left in the 3rd.

just finished watching the highlights. definitely a weak goal Bob gave up there in the end. briere was reallll close to tying it with less than 30 seconds left. richards' assist on Steeg's second goal was pretty sweet. i'm worried Bob might be experiencing some fatigue. he's probably never played this many games. seems like it was an exciting game. first time this year they've had back to back losses i think. as long as they pick it up later, i'm not too worried.

/flyers rant haha
