More on The Devil Wears Prada
In fact, in a brief interview with TMZ, vocalist and guitarist Mike Hranica says he’s actually kind of relieved that some of the band’s earlier releases are now buried in the internet abyss never to be heard from again.
Hranica goes on to explain that MySpace is pretty outdated. In that regard, Hranica notes it probably wasn’t the most reliable place to put important files in the first place.
“I find it really reckless and foolish to count on MySpace, the most dated platform, to hold something of importance, being your music,” Hranica says.
The vocalist then goes on to admit that his band really didn’t lose anything of interest to the server migration.
“I can think of one stupid cover song we once did, but honestly it’s not to our objection or peril to be losing that super old stuff,” Hranica says. “I find it rather refreshing to lose some of my 15 to 18-year-old self. But that’s just me.”
MySpace lost all pieces of music uploaded from 2003 to 2015. All in all, the loss equated to about 50 million songs from 14 million artists. Additionally, many users reported that old photos and videos would also not show up.
“As a result of a server migration project, any photos, videos, and audio files you uploaded more than three years ago may no longer be available on or from MySpace,” the site says in a statement. “We apologize for the inconvenience.”
