I'm in two bands currently. One which I have been in for almost two years that plays pretty generic radio rock. And another that I front and started a few months ago that plays art punk a "anything goes as long as we all think it sounds good" band. I've been contemplating leaving the first band for a while for a variety of reasons mostly disrespect. I'm starting to think I might need thicker skin, but it's the accumulation of such events that's gotten to me. Stuff that bothers me: 1. They make fun of any music I show them that is outside of their narrow niche. Math Rock = Stupid Dance Punk = Stupid Noise Rock = Weird and stupid. 2. Any suggestion I make on a song being a bit more creative is ignored. Like if I suggest a dynamic shift like no drums in one section or the vocals being whispered "lolno" 3. They don't understand that their friends don't count as fans. 4. They dismiss any suggestion I have of moving forward. Guys lets make a bandcamp Guys lets make a presskit Guys lets make a twitter Guys lets send in the EP to music review websites Guys lets write a few more songs before we pick 10 out of 15 songs to make an album Guys having a "hidden track" at the end of the last song in 2013 is pointless and annoying Etc. 5. Disrespect on stage. And this is what made me seriously consider leaving. Yet despite all this I still care about leaving leaving on good terms. Advice?
