Misha, kind of a weird question, but did you make some of the posts from Saturday whilst on your laptop at the Palladium? If so I may have watched you type them

Well they've been down to Australia (sadly I didn't know about them at that stage) So hopefully they return, and yeah, they might stop NZ

Seems like you guys are taking a complete 180 from your self titled release. If you were all about the band you wouldn't have released an instrumental then.

I hope you aren't forgetting most of your fans started by listening to your instrumental stuff like myself. Nuance and technicality are what got me into your grooves. Not saying vocals negate that, its just I think other vocalists were a better fit. I digress.

Just stating my opinion, release an instrumental album and you'll sell another record. Otherwise like you said, theres plenty of other bands out there I can shell my money out on.

Do you want me to tell you why you are wrong in alphabetical order or by importance?
I'll just say that what you dislike and call a 180 is called progression.

We did the first one because a lot of people were introduced to us as an instrumental, and we thought for the hardcore fans who only ever knew us as an instrumental band, and for musicians who wanted to hear the instruments a bit better it could be cool, which is why we had it as a SUPPLEMENT, and because the test run did well we made it available on itunes as well.

We might do an instrumental of the next album or we might not, but if we do, it will once again be a limited release and be supplemental.

And honestly dude, you arent really a fan of our band, i have seen enough posts in this thread by you stating your perfectly valid opinion to know that.
With that said we really dont need your money (or anyone else who is shares your opinion on us), so using that as an argument will not sway our decision, save it up or spend it on a band you actually like. We write the music WE want to write for ourselves, and because of that im afraid you will never like us the way we are, and thats fine by me haha!

i've never really understood this behavior of trying to tell bands what to do.

there's always this battle with fans and artists over what the actual relationship between the two is. and technology these days making the distance between the artists and the fans closer than ever seems to really make some fans think they're literally part of the band.

but there reaches a point where you have to be clear that if you're a fan of the band, you're a fan of what THEY create. not of what they create as proxy for what you wanted to have created.

or you're just not a fan, and you can go elsewhere.

but you're not really a fan of the band if you're demanding they create the music you want created. because your music isn't the band's music.
and frankly in no way shape of form do they ever become YOUR band simply because you bought their music.

this may be a cold summation of the relationship, but at the end of the day they create and you consume.

or don't consume.

but you're not part of the creation.

so you kind of have 1 of 2 choices = accept what they're producing or move on.
whether it's debates over who Periphery's vocalist should be.
should they even have a vocalist.
whatever.

hell, if Periphery becomes a Taylor Swift tribute pop country band next album, you still have 2 choices = accept it or move on.

if only everyone else was this sensible haha
but yeah this sums it up ever so well, thanks dude.

i think people sometimes forget that money/fame/etc are not a motivation for a lot of musicians, and definitely not for us (or we would definitely have picked a style of music that is actually popular and can actually generate those things)
The band and i are still doing what we were doing back when no one knew or cared about us, and that is writing something that we can be proud of.
We love our fans, but we love them because they accept what we write, not because they want to change us, and as much as everyone is entitled to their opinion, saying "i wish they would x, y and z" will literally have no bearing on what we do and is therefore just waste of time on their part.

I understand this, but discouraging people from giving their opinions on what they wish you would do pretty much negates the entire purpose of a discussion board.

I wish spencer would only sing clean and not scream anymore, it would increase my enjoyment of periphery's music, so that is something I will say on a message board like this one.

Will I lose sleep over it? Will I slit my wrists if he continues to scream? No, I just wanted to put my personal opinion out there. Like your music, like his singing, don't like his screaming. the end. Not telling anyone what to do, just stating a personal preference.

Like when I said half mockingly in the Tesseract thread that they should try starting a song without clean guitars and reverb, someone immediately jumped on me like YO BRO WHY DON'T YOU DO THAT IN YOUR OWN MUSIC THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THEY WANT ITS THEIR BAND SHUT UP.

no reason to get butthurt over opinions on message boards. That's all. Actually opinions, not "this is gay" or something like that.

I know a lot of reasons to keep up a discussion board other than tell a band what you think about them.
