On Selling Out
Any band who is met with any type of mainstream success or a long career is forced to evolve in their music in order to survive in the dog eat dog world of music. The decision to evolve is generally met by a wall of “true fans” screaming at the band that it hasn’t evolved; it has sold out! The idea of selling out is a ridiculous one. Every single musician has constantly changing musical influences and interests, and each one brings a new angle to a band’s writing.
