Just want to make sure you were aware I was defending you and that I stated that I didn't think you had screwed up.
I know you weren't saying that, no worries.
Good no one should haha.
Can I ask when you think you'll have a date for this and for Lakes? I really want the Lakes one.
Also you've inspired me to start my own label. We're doing CD not vinyl yet but just thought I'd share that tidbit.
I can't say specifically for Lakes. I could throw something out there, but why give people more ammo to bitch about stuff when it doesn't fall exactly on that date for whatever reason. Those guys have been doing a ton of stuff, both musically and personally. The extra time has, however, allowed us to come up with more ideas for the release, so while it won't be out as soon as it might have been had we just thrown it together, it will be worth it. They have a very loyal fanbase, and I don't think they will be disappointed with what we are doing for that record. It's going to be really nice.
People don't know what they are talking about. Just because a label puts out a vinyl release, it doesn't mean the band/artist had ANYTHING to do with it. Anberlin didn't even know Cities
was coming out on Record Store Day. There have been several other releases that have been done recently by other labels without any artist interaction. That's not my style. That's not the business I want to run. I work with the bands I work with every single day to make sure things are how they want it. I'm not putting together a generic mass market release. I don't want to do that, so I never will. That goes against everything I believe about music to begin with.
And I'm not the biggest fan of CDs, but at least you are doing something. Most people can't say that.
