“That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… And it’s worth fighting for.”
I cannot believe that I’m actually sitting here having a conversation with Consider Me Dead on facebook!
Okay so yesterday they posted “Message us!” on both their twitter and facebook pages, and they always favorite my tweets and stuff, and so I thought I’d try and send them a message on facebook too, and I just wrote:
You guys are amazing, I’m so excited to hear Young At Heart - less than a month to go! :D I really hope you’ll come to Europe on tour someday in the (near) future! :D
And I realize that I could/should have phrased that differently considering that Young At Heart is the title of their upcoming album and not a song, but I didn’t pause to think it through before I sent it… And I was excited to see whether they would answer me and they did!
Thank youuuu! <3 Have you pre-ordered the album yet??
And I can’t not answer a question so I told them truthfully that no, I haven’t, I’m waiting for my next paycheck (which is actually not quite true because I don’t have a job but I get money every month because I’m a student at university and it’s kind of like a paycheck so yeah…). And I was certain that they wouldn’t answer me this time, but they did!
Awesome! That will mean the world to us!
Please excuse me while I’m having a major fangirling moment: adskjhfbhafsgsh!
Last night they did a livestream on YouNow (younow.com/considermedead); they do that every Monday - because Mondays suck and they want to make them a little better, they said a couple weeks ago when I watched another livestream they did. And I had a lot of work to do anyway, so I stayed up late working (because of the time difference, right) and then watched the livestream which began at midnight (usually 1am in my timezone, guess they decided to start an hour early).
And YouNow is a place where people watching can write in a chatroom for everyone to see, and if you watch last night’s stream (you can watch them all by clicking the link above) you’ll notice that they answer a lot of questions and comments and such… And every time they say “Julie” it’s me okay - I watched the whole thing and there were no other Julies there yesterday, at least not that they answered! They noticed me at least three times - first I said that I love their new single “Like Thunder” (you can stream it here: purevolume.com/considermedead), then I asked when their birthdays are, and finally I said that I would pre-order their CD when I get paid on Friday. I really hope I can do that… Oh, and a fourth time: I asked if they ship internationally, both Brandon and Chris answered that one, kind of at the same time hahah. Ohh, now I remember more and more times they noticed me: I asked Chris if his phone was more important than us because he was texting or tweeting or something - he said no ofc not. And I asked for opinions on killer whales - because someone asked about their favorite animals - and Chris answered something along the lines of killer whales being awesome.
Okay, it’s safe to say I’m such a fangirl… Borderline stalker-ish perhaps; I’ve been liking a lot of their instagram photos today… And now I’m writing all this… Oh my god I need help (thinking about that episode of Penny getting addicted to online gaming and how that episode ends)…
Bottom line is: Consider Me Dead is amazing! I love their music (you can hear all their songs by clicking the purevolume link above, and all but “Like Thunder” are also on Spotify and probably also iTunes). My favorite song varies, but I really like Chasing California because it makes me really happy. I love love love how they interact with their fans, I love how they always favorite and retweet our mentions, and now they also answer messages on facebook! It’s a little insane… But my god, it makes such a difference for people like me. There’s nothing worse than musicians that don’t value their fan base, because they wouldn’t be able to be musicians without their fans. And CMD is aware of this. And the guys are awesome. And gorgeous… I love them all! I can’t choose a favorite haha!
Summing up the links:
THEIR NEW ALBUM, “YOUNG AT HEART”, WILL BE RELEASED ON APRIL 8TH, 2014!
