We Came As Romans guitarist Joshua Moore isn’t a fan of the Kickstarter trend of having fans fund a bands music. Venting on the subject earlier today (September 14th) via his Twitter, he offered:

“When my band was broke and wanted to record an EP, I went and got a job and put almost all of the money I earned towards it. Making sacrifices and having NO money was part of trying get somewhere in the industry. My tour friends and I have all been there before. Sorry for the rant. But I just don’t get it. I’m not saying I’m better than anyone else, and I’m not trying to speak for anyone else. But at least I know we never took the easy route, and did a majority of it with empty pockets but full of pride in what we were doing. No I’m not subtweeting any band. If I had an issue with a specific band or person, I wouldn’t put that on twitter. It’s just the idea of it.”
