Sumerian Records' CEO Posts Response to Upon a Burning Body

Posted by - 03:51 PM on 07/02/14
Sumerian Records' CEO, Ash Avildsen, has responded to the post made earlier from Upon a Burning Body.
I woke up to a ton of missed calls and just saw all this stuff about Danny Leal of UABB posing as that he's been abducted or kidnapped. My phone hasn't stopped ringing since. As a child, we all learn the story "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" and it sticks within our consciousness for a reason. I do not condone this type of publicity stunt. This was done behind my back and I am not OK with it. In my eyes, there's never a time to use the possibility of real-life abduction, injury or murder of someone you care about to promote anything, especially an album. If you need to resort to that, then you have lost the plot. We as a society should have evolved past that way of thinking by now and especially within the rock/metal community, given all the tragedy that has happened in our world over the past few years. There are some people who owe us an apology. -Ash Avildsen, Creator & CEO of Sumerian Records

The PR Rep who made the initial post on the Sumerian Facebook page is going to get his ass handed to him lol.
Also, what a shitty thing to do on the band's part.

I see a lot of people on the social media trashing the label. I don't think it's on the label honestly. To me this just seem like a terrible joke that isn't funny that the band pulled.
