It's a kind of naive of you if you think CHVRCHES are gaining popularity from a 'feud' with Mike Shinoda, of all people..
P.s. I realise there is no feud.
Agreed. I wouldn't be surprised if LP fans, those who aren't familiar with Chvrches, are dismissing it because they're "attacking" their beloved band, while the Chvrches fans are probably doing the same on the other side. At least, that's what a few Facebook comments from both pages led me to think.
