"We all had the same idea and vision of where we wanted to go and how important the music was to us," says Stewart. "This was something that we all really wanted."
Immediately after writing "Hey Brittney," Forever the Sickest Kids continued working on other ideas, and by the end of their first week, they had finished three songs. "The chemistry that we have together is awesome," Turman says. "Whenever we get in a room together with our instruments, ideas just start pouring out."
Within four month, the band had recorded Television Off, Party On and written many of the songs for their full-length debut. Then, Forever the Sickest Kids started playing shows, including a three-week stint on the indie stage of the Warped Tour. "That was the hardest thing we've ever done because a lot of people didn't know who we were and we were constantly having to prove ourselves," Stewart says. "But it was also the most rewarding thing because we were playing to over 1,000 people a day."
As rigorous as Warped was, it paid off. Before Warped, Forever the Sickest Kids averaged 10,000 to 12,000 daily plays on their MySpace page. When they got home, the number jumped from between 15,000 and 22,000. And the band's fanbase continues to grow.
"There's a lot of word of mouth and the songs wound up on other people's profiles, which really helps spread the word," Turman explains. "The Internet has been an amazing tool for us, but there's still nothing like playing in front of a live audience."
