Black Kids: They May Leave The Internet Because Of You

OK, not because of you, but because head Kid Reggie Youngblood didn’t realize how tiring it was to actually be in a band that was a major-label’s balance-sheet concern (16,000 SoundScans to date!) and perform and live up to unreasonable expectations all at once. “I don’t know if there’s going to be a second record,” Youngblood told “If anything, [performing] has hindered my songwriting because I’m used to writing on my own pace, at my leisure, or while I’m supposed to be working a proper job. I don’t really have time to sit down. When I’m not performing, I’m usually really tired and just want to sleep.” Sure, I can be smart-ass about it and say that some people kind of saw their hasty demise coming–even before they saw their unfortunate live show–but oh boy do I know the “just let me take a nap” feeling.
