YouTube stripped away two billion video views from the biggest record companies after the site cracked down on alleged fake viewers. The biggest losers were Universal and Sony.
From The ArticleThe dramatic cuts came as YouTube conducted a crackdown on fake views, but music industry sources have blamed it on housekeeping related to the migration of their videos across different channels. The unprecedented move left Universal with just five videos on the site - none of which were music - and Sony with just three.

This is the final reminder to all bands and industry folk - we'll be launching our EOTY feature very soon and we're still continuing to build up our "end of the year" database, as we've done each year, and we want your lists! If you're in a band, work for a label, or are involved in the industry - we want to feature your favorite albums of the year in our end of the year brouhaha. We've made it super simple again this year: just email us your lists here and make sure you make it clear who the list is for (ie: if you're in a band - is it a band list, or is it an individual band member list?). We'll compile everything together, and post it all around the new year.

Please note: This...

PureVolume recently sat down with Austin Carlile (Of Mice & Men) and talked about his work ethic, the band's upcoming album, and more.
From The InterviewTwo or three years ago, I may have gotten sucked into that stuff and voiced my opinion on this or that. But at this point in my life, I don't need somebody else's opinion. It absolutely makes me sick to see some of the hating on each other online. I think it's bullshit, and I think it's time for people in our industry to grow up. Instead of wasting time trying to be hurtful to someone else, why not try to help yourself and do something bigger?
