    Dear @maurajohnston Look, you can tear us apart or try to ruin us or whatever this is but please PLEASE don’t ruin the good name of @rollingstone while doing so. Please do your research. Understand that this band is out here because of what this magazine represented to all of us growing up. If you think that we were implying that music made on laptops is not real music than you clearly haven’t done your homework. That to me is embarrassing. You’re writing a piece for the BIGGEST name in music (RS, not us) and this just comes off as lazy and ignorant. Did you really not understand what “No Computers Up Here” meant? Do you really think we don’t respect electronic music? This is Rolling Stone, not Pitchfork. We care about what RS represents and ya know what? I’m proud as hell of my band for playing the AMA’s with ZERO backing tracks. Yes, we take pride in that. Without a doubt. We are a rock band, not a pop act and we played our instruments just as we said we would. We project that same sign every night at every show to let our fans that they are getting a unique experience. It’s not out of disrespect but out of respect for our craft. If you respected your job the way we respect ours you wouldn’t have written this trash. Do not do this to us again @rollingstone we care about you too much. And Maura, SPOILER ALERT: It’s electricity ⚡️ZAP⚡️
