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: firstname.lastname@example.org
