Emmure's founding guitarist, Ben Lionetti, released a statement condeming the band, their management, and their label.
I feel a little need to speak out. Let's get this straight ... Emmure is MY blood sweat and tears ..MY band born from my thoughts and my hard work and writing (I'm sure you can see the change from early Emmure to now so if they say they wrote it you know it's a lie; I was actually forced to say it was an even split wether it was money or writing credits) it will never be theirs as much as they can fake it that's all it is .. fake. To see what Frank [Palmeri] is doing to me and my family's hard work is absolutely disgusting. I love Mark [Davis], we hang all the time and...

Victory Records would like to share their cooking tips with you by sharing this "Let Me Teach You How to Eat" video. If you were dying to see your creepy uncle sing a crappy song with a video treatment that your 12 year old cousin came up with ... there you go. Happy Thanksgiving.

In celebration of Terror's upcoming direct support slot on Suicidal Tendencies "Slam City" tour, we're giving away two merch packs, courtesy of Victory Records. Each pack includes an autographed t-shirt, copy of the band's new album Live By The Code, and an autographed poster. Just write a comment on this post (one per user), and we'll choose a couple of winners.

Update: We have a couple winners - Thanks for playing!

PropertyOfZack is reporting on a new A Day To Remember and Victory Records case development that alleges the band paid John Janick (at the time of Fueled By Ramen) a sum of $450,000 over a period of four years as a manager to the band. However, the court has ruled that Janick was not acting as a manager and that means a variety of things for the case, including that Janick can now be deposed. You can read a rundown of the case here and view the latest document (sent in by Tony of Victory Records) here.

What appears to be the original version of A Day To Remember's "The Document Speaks For Itself," allegedly featuring a threatening voicemail from Victory Records' Tony Brummel, has surfaced.

Curious what this video referenced in the voice mail is? Some insight from videographer Drew Russ:
I sent Victory an edit of the "2nd Sucks" Music video I did. It had a watermark over the video which read "Victory Records Proof" like you know, a proof of a photo, that you look at before it's final. (This was standard, They asked for a water marked version)

Tony gets it and thinks it means like Victory Proof like Fire Proof or something. Gets mad, calls me. I thankfully let it go to voicemail,...

You either care about the current A Day to Remember vs Victory Records court case or you don't, and if you do, odds are you are a little confused about just what the fuck is going on. I'm going to be speaking with the band shortly for a longer piece about the new album and the ongoing legal stuff, and we've already read the statements from Victory. After pouring over countless court documents, talking to a variety of legal sources, and caring way too much about this (yeah, this stuff fascinates me, in another life, I wanted to argue in a courtroom instead of a message board all day) -- I've begun piecing together what we currently know.

First, if you just care about the music, here's...

Update: AP.net writer, Thomas Nassiff, has reached out and recieved a statement from Victory Record's lawyer, Robert S. Meloni.
While Victory is disappointed with the ruling, and disagrees with the court's conclusions, it comes as no surprise. Courts rarely grant negative injunctions of this nature, but the circumstances of this case presented a unique opportunity for such a ruling. Having said that, in denying Victory's motion, the court's reasoning actually contained silver linings that significantly favored Victory. First, the court held that it supports Victory's argument about the construction of the recording contract – that ADTR is still obligated to deliver two more albums to...

Looks like today's court case between A Day To Remember and Victory Records was postponed. A new court date has not been set.

PropertyOfZack is reporting that A Day To Remember will be self-releasing its upcoming new album, Common Courtesy, on October 8th despite the unresolved nature of its lawsuit against Victory Records. We'll keep you updated.
The band announced the release date for Common Courtesy at 11:30 p.m. EST this past Friday. No record label — Victory Records or otherwise — made an official announcement or issued a press release regarding the album following the band’s release date confirmation. With less than six weeks before Common Courtesy comes out, it looks as though A Day To Remember are timing the release of the album with their fall arena tour. Six days following the band’s original...

A site called RetiredArtists has popped up. Boasting musicians who have been in bands that were "signed and toured extensively, on labels ranging from Victory Records to Bridge 9 Records," the service offers discreet songwriting for the musically challenged.
What do we do? We make it easy for that guy who wants to sing in a metal, hardcore, punk or rock band (but doesn’t have the music-writing friend to help him) write songs. We also make it easy for someone struggling with writing their own music in a band get consistent by writing songs that they can learn, as theirs, and branch off from there.

How do we do it? You tell us what style you want your songs in based on specific...

Streetlight Manifesto just posted on their website that their album is in its final stages of being recorded and will be out in the Summer. They also ask for fans to boycott buying merch/music of theirs from Victory Records and that they will be off the label in the summer.
Message from the BandFor the sake of keeping things emotion-free and legal, we'll cut straight to the chase and forgo the insults and accusations: It is and has been for quite some time our position that Victory Records is an artist-hostile, morally corrupt and generally dishonest company, with whom we have had the displeasure of being associated due to a contract that was signed years ago. We're not writing...

I've heard some people call Rise Records the new Victory Records, and I guess I get the comparison from a certain standpoint - but I gotta admit: the emails I get after I crack a joke about a Rise Records' band on the homepage are always lighthearted and good spirited. When I used to make jokes about Victory stuff, the emails were basically threatening. Gotta give Rise a lot of credit. Plus, they're in my neck of the woods, are signing a lot of really good bands, and bringing in Matthew Gordner to do A&R work has been brilliant.
