Just Why


Thanks for everyone who read and spread our SXSW post around. We got a lot of positive response from it, and it felt like a lot of people who wouldn't normally be associated with our band got involved in the debate. Check out articles here and here. Not everyone felt the same way however -in a nice ironic twist of fate to the last time we were specifically linked to a particular group of corporations (ie when we sued Camel Cigs and Rolling Stone), - now we're the ones getting sued. One of the companies that was involved with presenting our official sxsw showcase (Thriller Energy Drinks) took out a claim against us yesterday for defamation. It's not a big case so it's not a huge deal, but it is a chilling reminder of what can happen when artists speak out about certain issues. We can't obv talk about it on here that much, but you can feel free to email the company yourself thx: thrillpill@thrillerenergy.com

I hear Thriller Energy drinks can make the dead do a syncopated dance. That's what I heard at least.

Make sure to send that email before midnight tonight!

"Really just a gross company, and even though we did help him promote our show, we wouldn't do it again. While all the companies we've mentioned in this article up to this point have been ones we've worked with on multiple occations, and hope to do in the future, and admire, we can say with force that Thriller Energy Drinks is a bullshit company and we won't be working with them ever again.

how did you think you could get away with this?! They really don't have a case, so I guess they wanna settle.

No Thriller brand suppository? Maybe that was too obvious.

If people think this is real, they're fucking retarded. The Thriller Energy Drink website was created TWO DAYS AGO. Try calling one of the phone or fax numbers listed for the "law firm."

Way to check your shit, NME, Exclaim, etc etc etc

I hate the world.
