The RX Bandits are not happy with Drive Thru Records' decision to release their album Progress on vinyl.
angerApparently DTR is making more money from our album Progress by selling it for a vinyl pressing we were not asked nor do we get 1 cent from it, just business as usual for DTR ripping off bands.
