Where can people buy your merchandise? At a show, or at our online store; http://humanvivisection.bigcartel.com
What do you think about people downloading music instead of buying records now a days? It sucks, but I think we just have to roll with it that it happens. I do understand why people do this, outside the fact that its free. There are so many bands out there nowadays, and it's impossible to support all of them. I prefer people to download our music illegaly and come to a show and buy merch then, then not check us out at all.
What advice would you give other bands or artists? Work hard. Take action. Don't wait for gig oppertunity's, or labels to come to you. Reach out. And most importantly; support other bands, help eachother out, go to other people's gigs. Don't expect people to come out to your show if you don't go to theirs. We must all do out part to keep this underground scene alive.
