pretty interesting. i would really like to see a list of the revenue a band like BOO makes, and how seriously bad it hurts them to have a cd leak early. i would assume the label has to pull money from other areas at that point
interesting facts. i still am curious to know what a decently known band like asking alexandria on this label, or any label for that matter, walks away with at the end of the year when they've toured extensively and released an album in the same year. smaller indie labels like rise and tragic hero, etc. are always signing bands and are bigger labels than a year ago. however it seems like it's finally time for the music industry to take a diff route to make money in place of album sales b/c illegal downloading will always happen. for me when i don't buy an album, it's b/c the album isn't worth buying.
record labels make money off the CD sales.. so no shit he's gonna make an ATTEMPT to stop illegal downloading, thats why he even opened that music store yesterday on sunset blvd ..lol..
kids will still download tho.. doesnt matter
