You know what’s beyond annoying? That press releases often come stylized. Meaning, almost pre-written for specific sites, so they can just take the text, copy and paste it into their content management systems. I’m fucking really over all the preferential treatment certain folks get. It’s giving me a cunting ulcer.
Why capitalize the name of a band in a press release, unless the band’s name is, indeed, one that is, at all time, in CAPS?
So, yeah, New Hampshire ambient blackened doom metal outfit Vattnet Viskar will soon be touring…on the heels of the exciting news they’ve been singled out by Stereogum.com as a band to watch!
Boy oh boy, that kind of distinction’s gotta add a little glimmer to that resume, I tell you.
“We’re beyond excited to hit the road in support of our EP and recent signing to Century Media,” says the band. “To our West Coast fans: don’t worry, more dates will be added soon in November…We look forward to meeting all of you on the road!”
So, yeah — the West Coast isn’t getting any part of Vattnet Viskar. So suck it!
