STREETLIGHT MANIFESTO vs. VICTORY RECORDS

 

Die Band aus New Jersey macht drei Kreuze - denn das letzte im Vertrag vorgesehene Release auf Victory Records steht an. Um dem eher "ungern gesehenen" Label möglichst kein Geld in die Finger zu spielen, rufen die Amis auf, die Platte entweder auf den eigenen Shows oder über die Band-Website zu erwerben - nicht aber über Victory oder iTunes direkt.

In einem Statement hiess es:


"It is and has been for quite some time our position that Victory Records is an artist-hostile, morally corrupt and generally dishonest company, with whom we have had the displeasure of being associated due to a contract that was signed years ago. We wish Victory Records no ill will or harm. Ok, that's not entirely true. But what we want more than seeing the bad guy get his comeuppance, to see the villain get bitch-slapped by karma, is freedom from a company we abhor. We want the money made by our record and merch sales to help fund the band, not a company we're ashamed to be associated with."
