Well, I download it and make another news article about the band after I've heard the song (even if you're the only one that reads it).

this is interesting, i would like to hear some well crafted, dark, studio pop from this collective...

was she a contestant on the show? or a singer in the live backing band?

A contestant. I'll change "vocalist" to "contestant" since it should be obvious that she is a vocalist.

She's a much more talented vocalist than Amy Lee but she over sings like whoa.

in a new band called The Fallen.

Literally the cheesiest, cliche band name I've heard in a while.
The music could be good though.

Meh. I can't imagine anyone but Brett Scallions singing for Fuel.

didn't evanescence already have a song called bury me alive or does that just sound like something they'd do?

also this will probably not be good.

Fairly sure they don't...but the band name being the same as Evanescence's big label debut? Wow.

And obviously it was Amy Lee that tore apart Evanescence, not Moody.

She has a half-sleeve now she's edgy hence the name change.

I wonder if the band name is taking the piss out of Amy Lee or they're just lazy.

I tried to download the song but it appears the band aren't as "fan-friendly" as they're trying to let on. Only the first 100,000 fans will get the song for free, but in order to see if you're one of the first 100,000 you have to fill out a form giving them your first and last name, DOB, cell phone number and e-mail address. You will then eventually recieve an e-mail letting you know whether you can download the song or whether you've just been dupped into giving them ways to spam the shit out of you.

It pisses me off because regardless of their past they're still a new band and they're going to force people to jump through hoops to hear one song. That's not even including the fact that most people are going to give up their private information and not even get to hear the song. Bullshit.

Yeah, I figured there would be unofficial ways to check out the song. My problem is with the band themselves and the shady way they're collecting people's information and how they're already being dumb about getting their music out.

I don't see how it's dumb. Wrong, sure. But not dumb. Not only do they make 100,000 presumably fat, ugly girls feel special by giving them a false sense of exclusivity but they've persuaded hundreds and thousands of other fat, ugly girls (+ Willie) to give them their information so that they can use it for advertising purposes.

Yeah, maybe "dumb" was the wrong word. I'm basically saying what Dave said in the last sentence of his comment. I didn't give them my information, though ;) I was going to check it out so that I could post another news item, but it wasn't worth it.
