Anonymous said: everyone in american seems to make bands with friends so easily but here in the uk everyone is so lazy all they do is shop and play no instruments. i wanna make a band really badly and i have to wait until college so i can meet new people now ugh but i love your band dudes enjoy yourselves in this lifestyle !! <3

Well if your that set on the idea of a band and you still like the idea of forming one In college, then it would be completely worth your time! Even just by yourself you could jot down some lyrics and maybe some acoustic songs for a start. We wish you the best of luck!

Anonymous said: What do you guys use to record your cover videos for YouTube? I want to start doing my own covers, and thought I would ask the ones who are inspiring me to start. Thanks! xoxo

aw it’s cool to hear we’re inspiring you!!

We just use emily’s Kodak Zi8 to record, but we definitely need something better than even that.!!

Hey Everyone!
Yes, it&#8217;s us again. For those who haven&#8217;t heard of us, we are a band called For The Record, from Cary, IL. 
We want to thank you guys for being so supportive of us recently. The amount of followers we&#8217;ve gained on both our Tumblr and Twitter accounts amazes us, and we couldn&#8217;t even begin to describe how much we appreciate your support and friendship. We started getting thousands of views and hundreds of messages about our videos, and each of us as members of FTR. We are truly blessed.
If you want to help us spread the word about our band, please &#8220;like&#8221; our Facebook page, where you can continue to ask us questions and get to know us.
Below are the links to each of our YouTube covers, with our most recent being displayed at the top (PS, if you&#8217;d liked to subscribe to our channel, we&#8217;d be so grateful!!)&#160;:
Fine, Great - Modern Baseball (Cover)
I&#8217;ve Given Up On You - Real Friends (Cover) 
What Went Wrong - Blink-182 (Cover)
A Part Of Me - Neck Deep (Cover)
On a side note, we will be headed to the studio next Friday, August 15th to record our first single "Reasons I Don&#8217;t Like You", and we hope that we can get all of you to help us out and spread the word once it&#8217;s released!
As always, feel free to ask us questions and come and talk to us. After all, fans are our friends and fans are our family.
We love you guys and we couldn&#8217;t do this without you.
Love Always,
Matt, Nick and Emily of For The Record xx.
