Really rare to have someone shake your hand and introduce themselves after a simple compliment on a set. Jeremiah and Mike both did that. Just genuine dudes in a fucking terrible situation. I hope this sparks bands other than Hostage Calm to air out some grievances with Panic records. There are always new labels forming that can do a comparable job to Panic and I would hate to see this keep happening, which apparently is a lot

Panic's FB is hilarious right now.


I just checked and didn't see anything regarding it. Did they delete it all or something?

"You can believe the spin of Pentimento if you'd like. The band is always the victim in every situation when it comes to band/label disputes and if you side with them and call fowl on Panic Records, that's your choice. Remember there are two sides to every story. I honestly do not care. Pentimento signed a contract and were happy with Panic Records on up until they were offered a deal from another label in which I tried to negotiate the end to their contract so that all parties would be satisfied. Pentimento are the ones that introduced their lawyer into the dealings and I responded with a lawyer as well."

Thanks. I was interested to read what they had to say.

The comments are a good read, too. Panic Records is definitely on the defense here. Either way the album is great and if anything they appear to be getting more publicity this way.

Yeah. I don't know much about the situation, but I know pentimento is a great band and their new album (at least on first listen) is fantastic. I also know that Panic Records put out releases for a couple of my favorite bands like Another Breath and The Effort (obviously), so I don't think I could completely boycott them. I do hope there's a physical release for this pentimento album on another label in the future so I can pick it up though.
