Scene Point Blank: How will you remember 2007? (In terms of music)
Anything music related, I'd say Summer/touring.
Scene Point Blank: What kind of impact do you think donation-based releases like Radiohead, Saul Williams, etc? will have on the record industry?
Honestly, I don't see it hurting the labels that would have normally put out theie records. Either way they'll find a way to make money.
Scene Point Blank: 2007 saw the decommissioning of two prominent file-sharing groups - Demonoid and Oink. What kind of impact will the increased crackdown on file-sharing have on the record industry? Did it personally have an effect on you?
I don't think it will have as much as an effect on the labels as it will bands. Those sites seemed to have helped smaller bands get their music in more peoples' ears. I was never a member of either of those sites but I know our EP was all over those sites and its less people hearing it with them closed so it's somewhat of a bummer.
Scene Point Blank: What can we look forward to from your band in 2008?
New music, more shows, more merch, more fun.
Scene Point Blank: What three records are you looking forward to most in 2008?
A.F.I., 2* Sweet, and Fireworks.
