FYS Discuss New SongWe wrote this song, “Fairweather Fan”, in honor of all of our REAL fans. The kids that have been there from the very beginning. The kids who love us for us, not for the gimmick, not for the fad, and not ONLY because we have breakdowns. We have always been a band that just plays music because its what we love to do. Not because we want money, or fame, its because we love it. So this song goes out to all those kids who call themselves a “fan” until a band does something different, and then just hop on the the next “cool” band.

We have always taken pride in our fan base because it was so eclectic, so open minded, and so unique. This song is written in honor of you, and saying fuck you to everyone else. This is four year strong. Rise or die.

I think that's such an ass move on their part with the comment. We dislike music for different reasons, and just because some may not like the new stuff makes us not a REAL FAN? We were the ones who helped them get to where they are, with all of our support they'd be nothing. I think we're as real as fans could get

So fans can't have their own opinion about their music?

I agree...it's a pretty good song, but all their comments on their new record and the reaction their "fans/followers" have had is starting to piss me off, not to mention what they did to Josh.

Why? Cause they're being honest? So many bands pussyfoot around and say the PC thing, once scrubbed by management, and no one gets the real, honest, truth. I respect this far more.

This is very good. Only track I've liked from this album so far, but very good.

love how honest these guys are being about this. I've seen a ton of bands try and experiment and get a ton of shit from their "fan base" and have to quietly go back and recreate their old style. I applause these guys for addressing how shitty people can react when bands just try to experiment with something different to what they usually do and get hate for it.
