    @Danny...could be huge?! These guys ARE huge. I don't care about size, these guys have one of the most dedicated fan bases of any band I have ever seen. I'm not talking about people wearing their shirts and merch, or the number of people in their fanbase, but people who genuinely appreciate their music.

    I've been a PTM fan for 2 years now, and unlike "Hipster" up top, I do feel that many people will take their music for granted and it sucks they're mainstream. But these guys have such powerful music, that honestly, I feel they're just what the music industry needs. I saw them live at the TLA in Philly, and they were just ELECTRIC. God bless these guys, always a fan, about time they get the attention they deserve!!

    Can't someone just make amazing music, and it be considered amazing? Their music is very important. The Beatles are popular as hell, but for a reason. There's a reason good music becomes popular. I've seen these guys a lot. They're all genuinely nice people.
