They're still able to sell out tours playing 800 cap rooms and their last record sold 12k first week, despite it being self-released and them moving away from their bubblegum pop sound. They're making enough money that it pays all of their bills and then some. It's not like their a band like Rookie of the Year that is still releasing records but can barely draw 30 kids to a show.
Haha... if you think 800 kids a night and 12k first week is paying their bills (not the bands as a whole), but their individual bills, you're not very smart. Nothing against them, its just a losing effort at this point. Please message me the sound scan numbers for the first week of this new release.
