Since the inception of The Dolls, the band has tried very hard to keep fans as close as possible, all the while keeping things fresh and exciting.
Both Amanda and Brian strive hard to do special things for all of you -- on many occasions they have played songs live, but have asked that these particular performances not be made available to the public. Each time, you have honored this request.
With that said:
Many press and promotional photos for Amanda's upcoming solo record were discovered yesterday, and were being passed around amongst the fans. It is great (and understood) that many of you were excited about these photos and were sharing them with one another, but please DO NOT DO THIS ANY LONGER.
We have removed all discussion about the photos from both the LiveJournal and board, and ask that if any of you saved these images, please DON'T share them.
Amanda has put a lot of her own money into these photoshoots and literally spends HOURS trying to find the best of them to present to press so that they are unique and new to all of you each and every time. As fans of music and unique artists, we know it's exciting to discover such a motherload of unseen material, but we also know that Dresden Dolls fans are like no other and are very respectful of Amanda's wishes...
It is wonderful everyone enjoyed what they got to see, but again, please be patient and wait for us to release these photos in their full glory.
Thank you for understanding.
Also, Amanda wanted you to know the following:
"If anyone downloaded the photos of me naked in the tub I grant full approval for using the photos for whack off material. Thanks, and have a great night."
