The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus Label-Less
 
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus' myspace profile now lists the band as label-less.

yeah virgin pumped a lot of money into marketing them and their album sales were mediocre.

Muy Interesante.

That sucks for them- maybe this means we don't have to be subject to their marketing to such a grand scale.

One can only hope.

Didn't their last album do well? I remember that horrible horrible song of theirs being played everywhere for a while.

didn't they go gold? if so, that's pretty respectable for a debut album

if not, totally ignore my post

Interesting. That sucks, but maybe they'll get on a label "more suitable" for them. Who knows.

Posthardcore 04/14/08 04:19 PM

good.. maybe they will make a better CD which wont get over populated on the airwaves as much

Mediocre? It went platinum..

one-hit wonder

You'd think a label would be grateful for a gold record, but I guess Virgin still has big expectations. RJA is probably better off. I think they have some really good songs that they're not recognized for.

As of a couple of months ago it had scanned a little north of 811k which is not quite plantinum but definitely a lot more than "mediocre"
