Darkest Hour Frontman Slams Victory Records

Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour frontman John Henry has criticized Victory Records and says that despite releasing five albums with the label and selling hundreds of thousands of copies, he has yet to see a royalty check from the record company.

Henry isn't the first artist to be critical of the Chicago based label. A Day To Remember won a lengthy legal battle against Victory last year with a jury awarding the band $4 million in alleged unpaid royalties, according to Altpress.

On a recent episode of the Lead Singer Syndrome podcast with Silverstein's Shane Told, Henry had this to say (via Lambgoat), "We were one of the few bands that completed a Victory contract. Five albums, yeah, ten years baby. Still haven't seen a royalty check. Hundreds of thousands of units SoundScanned, you know? Not one penny.

"So, maybe someday, we'll get something from them, I don't know... not that it's all about the money or anything Feeding yourself is pretty tight." Listen to the full podcast here.
