So I'm not sure how much I'm supposed to say about this... Today I found out we were officially dropped from Universal Republic. I can't say I'm dissappointed though.

We did everything in our power to avoid the horrible situation we were put into, but I guess that wasn't enough. I guess the label is kind of in shambles. I mean, if you feel like the man that brought you The Killers and Fall Out Boy is expendable; what the hell are we?

Whatever... most people in the "record industry" are shitheads, and don't have a clue what they're doing. That is the real resaon why records aren't selling anymore. I only know that my band is going to keep on keepin' on (as I like to say) and that we are already working on some badass new music. I feel like I want to fight for this more than ever before.

I'm sorry it has been a long while since I've checked in, but I've kind of been bummed about this stuff. I feel sort of reinvigorated now and I promise to check in more often.

If I don't check in sooner, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and new year. I'm looking foward to spending time with my family and friends on beautiful Long Island myself.

Thank you guys/gals for sticking with us. We'll keep you posted with updates ASAP.

Yours truly,
Shaun

I'm sure they'll be fine, if not better. They are actually pretty good from what little I've heard, but put next to the bands that are actually "making it" on that label, they're leagues ahead. It sucks that the industry sucks, but they'll make it through.

Sh*t, straight after the largely sold out tour with Motion City? This makes little sense.

I wouldn't be too bummed if I was them, I mean, who wants to be on the same label as Alter Bridge or 3 Doors Down?

I would however be bummed about leaving behind Afroman as a label mate.

Either way, they'll get snapped up by someone.
there is no fear in this heart.

As long as they keep making great music, I don't care what label they're on.

They're too good for them anyways.

Lord Gold probes you publicly and makes your pussy wet.
Now say his name.....

I don't know much about the music industry, but won't another label just jump at the chance of signing a band that has already "made it"?

i could be wrong....
...Nothing you've ever...
...Planned on ever turned out...
...The way you planned...


...You're still disappointing them...

hey you make great music but you don't make money get out

it seems like that how most major labels treat smaller bands on the label

they were properly the best band on Universal and i haven't even seen the roster

What were they doing on that label in the first place, that's what they should be asking
