We Are The In Crowd Answers What We've All Wondered

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/27/12)
We Are the In Crowd answered an interview question about the infamous "creative control" tweets.
From the InterviewTay: Yeah. We havenít really talked about this at all. Basically, there was a decision that was made for ďKiss Me AgainĒ that wasnít a make or break decision, but it was something where we wanted it one way, and somebody at the label wanted it the other way. It kind of burned a little bit hearing, ďNope, itís not going to happen.Ē For me it was just a spur of the moment, ďThis is bullshitĒ kind of thing. Iím over it. Iím definitely over it.
Jordan: A lot of the Internet thinks that because weíre a pop band that we donít write our own songs or thereís someone puppeteering us. This is an example of how that never happens. Because the time it kind of happened, we got mad and belligerent. Mike got really drunk that night.
Mike: I was literally the drunkest or second drunkest Iíve ever been in my entire life. I actually got kicked out of a bar for trying to break a pinball machine. I donít remember any of it.

They're still skirting the issue. They should just say exactly what it was.

Haha. I love how the last comment makes everyone forget about the rest of the statement. I'm surprised to see Hopeless doing that, but at least it was small and it's over with now.

From my understanding, the label (the one paying for the recording/mixing/mastering of the new song + marketing behind it) believed that the song would sound better the way it was released, and in order to justify the additional expense of the new song - wanted it that way ... I don't know how that makes them declarative assholes.

i get what ur saying...but on one song, could the artist's opinion on a song they wrote not be valued or taken into consideration. that specific track is a not a winner or loser on the album, its not too significant. i get business sense, but labels should let artist have more input on the music their making.

It's the new (re-recorded, re-released) single with Alex from All Time Low. So, yes, I would argue it is very significant.

Think Alex being on the track could be what they disagreed about? Dont really follow this band or anything so I'm not sure if theyre "friends" with All Time Low or not.

My understanding, again - me just picking up on things from people I've talked to - is that the idea for Alex to be on the track as a collaboration was their idea to begin with. I've heard the point of contention was some relatively minor part of the song.

Somehow missed this first time around. Kind of impressed they had the balls to say it in the first place, even if it seems slightly like throwing their toys out of the pram.

no ballin no more?

hopefully they're really over it by now. hopeless is my favorite label and i've never seen any band complain about them, not even sparks the rescue when their sophomore didn't get promoted the way it should, and later, when they got dropped off the roster.
