There’s a common thread here. Only established bands who have already made their money are the ones taking the stand against streaming music. New and upcoming bands are more willing to cast a big net to get ears to their music. It’s been proven time and time again that artists make more money off touring than album sales, so why not do everything you can to maximize your exposure to potential new ticket buyers?
I was dead-sure that Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories wouldn’t be on any of these streaming services, but it’s everywhere.
You think that if those new and upcoming bands ever get big they’ll then pull all their stuff from streaming services? Can a band even get that big anymore?
