Iwrestledabearonce say the Internet is “a gift and a curse”

Among our plethora of Warped Tour interviews, our chat with Iwrestledabearonce probably best exemplified the conundrum facing musicians in today’s Internet Age.

Sure, the Internet has made anyone able to start a band and release music without depending on a record label — but that also means a lot of crappy music gets put out, as well.  Or some fans love being able to instantly download their favorite bands’ albums, but then are missing out on goodies like album artwork and lyrics that don’t always accompany MP3’s.

Ultimately — as IWABO’s Krysta and John concluded here — the best thing to do is adapt with the times (as seen in their prolific merch selection) and be happy to see more bands today putting originality into their music rather than whatever a producer tells them to.
