I really like your band! Awesome name too! Well Done! If I had any money at all, I would totally buy the cd.

What's your royalty on that, if you don't mind me asking? I've always wondered.

Very cool. Congratulations.

How did you get your band on iTunes? Is there an approval process or something, or did you get brought in through a label?

thanks for the replys. our royalties for itunes is roughly .60 per song if i remember correctly. other places, like napster, cdbaby, digistation, get us more.

we have played both macon and atlanta. in macon, we played the hummingbird ages ago, and have played all over the place in atlanta. right now,we are not sure whats going to happen. everyone is off doing various things.

as far as getting on itunes, we got on via our cd replicator. they have a deal where they digitally distribute your music via cd baby for roughly 30 dollars when you purchase your cds from them. it takes a couple months for everything to get put on itunes, make sure nothing is infringing copyrights, etc. and ready to sell. then, every month, i get a check for the sales. very cool.

so please, buy, buy, buy. or just listen.
thanks for the compliments for those who gave them.

Stars of the Bizarre sounds like it might have been inspired by The Killers
Vocals need some work though i think. They seem to get hidden/obsecured by the music too easily.
