They've signed Staring Back,Bracket,and Paperface.The latter 2 bands are releasing albums on Takeover towards the end of the year,and Staring Back will hopefully release early next year.I think Takeover did a good job of adding(esp.Staring Back)3 good bands.
Apparantly you didn't get what I was saying. Fat Mike dropped Inspection 12. All the Fat bands sound the same, and that's why they got dropped, because they were doing something different.
I know that Fat Mike dropped i-12.he didn´t like get rad. even though I love get rad I understand him.I wouldn´t put out a record that I don´t like either.
all the fat wreck bands sound the same? yeah right, that proves that you don´t know anything about music or the fat wreck rooster.or can you really say that against me!,lagwagon,love equals death,the subhumans,sick of it all,the soviettes,the epoxies,good riddance,etc. all sound the same. common that´s a lame prejudice. "all the fat bands sound the same" I heard that a million times before and it´s just not true.
originally i was pissed as hell when fat mike dropped i12. i mean look what happened, we lost pete to yellowcard! But now it's quite clear why. The album starts out too slow. I know fat mike was concerned whether or not i12 could tour, ,but there's truth to fat's point that it wasn't "punk" enough.
anyways, fat wreck sucks now. he keeps signing shitty bands that are made up of hasbeena from older fat bands. and it's hard to argue that most fat bands don't sound alike. But i will say that AGainst ME! is the greatest fat wreck signing since propagandhi. Hands down!
It looks like something is up with Staring Back.On their myspace,they say they're unsigned to take over and they aren't gonna release a record at all.This is a wild guess,but this may have something to do with the whole Ben and Yellowcard situation,since Ryan Mendez played with YC over in Japan,I wouldn't be surprised if Ben was out and Ryan is in.But it's just a guess,could be totally wrong.
