Maybe you don't like it, but this is the future. Why? Because they hardly make money with their music anymore, since still a lot of people rather download music illegal than pay for the hard work the bands put in it.
Why do you think bands come with things like beer, wines and all other crazy merch/sidestuff? Because they need to make money first before they can make more music again for YOU! I don't say to go support bands and buy merch when you can for nothing..I know that making music and especially touring isn't cheap.
A lot of bands do a little tour in their vacation (if they can get the days off from their normal work that they do to make money for their families), and they are lucky to make it even.
What keeps all these bands going? Why do they still keep making music? Because of their passion, their drive, the feeling that this thing called music gives us.
So, realize that the surviving of the bands you like will (when you don't count fights and passing away of bandmembers in the whole thing) rely for a big part on you, the fan, too!
Show your support!!
