The only problem with the theory that there modlife isn't ready yet is that they were using modlife yesterday before the outage.
Holly HoX! modlife is kinda hard to explain but it's like a message board/store where people can post videos, sell merchandise and otherwise give news updates about the band.
EDIT: Modlife is a website that connects fans with bands, artists and personalities using live video broadcasts, text messaging, video blogs, mobile updating and Twitter feeds. Modlife's goal is to reward loyal fans and to create a new revenue stream for content creators through a high level of interactivity between celebrities and fans. Modlife’s business model is based on a community of fans who create profiles, leave comments, and engage in live text chats with each other and with their favorite celebrities.
Also, to further expand this mystery, if you look on Toms Instagram page, @poetanderson, All of his pictures in the last week of the X mas art work and release date of the bundles have been deleted! What gives?!? Some one jumped the gun?
I know these guys act like idiots but surely they covered all bases before they announced the split from the label..
Interestingly before the pre orders went up i thought i might sign up to their mailing list so id get the info and i cant remember exactly because i have the memory of a gold fish but something came up about universal music so maybe they own that website still or whatever
