If the a label signs a band that has no rapport, little to no credibility, and no past success then I can fully understand why they want to see the band put out material that sounds like their demo or whatever the fuck got them signed. If I sign band A that gave me a demo that sounded like paramore, so I signed band A as they told me that is the direction the want to go in and then tries to put out a nu-metal album then I would say "fuck you, put out the music i signed you to put out" (aside: I have a soft spot for nu-metal and would never say this) . I get that "integrity" and "creativity" are important but if I was putting my money into signing them, then they better give me what I am paying for. A band like blink has earned their creative freedom and should be given free reign to do as they please. This band (who I just had to search on youtube) has not.
I don't agree at all. Thomas said earlier that they sound like a less talented Hayley Williams and Alex Gaskarth. Why listen to them when you can actually listen to Paramore and ATL? The music is bland and the lyrics are worse. I just don't see the potential at all. Now with TDS I do. They write great songs, are fairly recognizable, and people really connect. Imagine if this band did half the shit TDS does. No one would listen to them anymore.
And don't get me started on how that girl looks... I'm trying to be nicer in 2012
Whoa!!! Just checked out your profile and YOUR talking about Tay's looks? Im gonna be nice here in 2012 like you and not say much more other than, Her 8 You 3
They could release an album at the right time, when music moves toward rock again ... and blow up. They could release a cult classic. Seems weird to completely write it off as impossible -- they could get bigger. If they released an album on the same level as TDAG (I would bet money they won't) ... they would definitely get bigger.
I'm glad you said, 'When music moves towards rock again' should be soon.
i will defend watic until the day i die. they rock so much rob is one of the best dummers out there and they have the best merchie ever Molly Texeira-Torres and i think tay is cutier/hotter then hayley cassadee pope, rihanna and more
I don't see any valid basis for taking sides until the full story comes out and we know what the fuck they're upset about. I will say though, that the activity in this thread seems to speak somewhat for the popularity of the band.
has the thought crossed anyone's mind that maybe the passive aggressive tweeting wasnt about hopeless, but instead was mocking another band that had been passive aggressively tweeting their respective label?
