Straight Edge Label Drops Major Deal
"Anyone following the label closely probably heard we were going to have East/West Distribution via Warner Bros. and I am writing this to let everyone know that as of last night we ended that. Why would we end that is what you would probably ask? The answer is simple, Seventh Dagger is something I have worked on for the last almost 7 years and I saw this deal being the end of the label as it was and is. I saw this as trading the underground status and soul of the label for the potential to sell more CDs and let's face it if I was here to make money I would have left a long time ago.
Being a straightedge, hard core record label is the epitome of being underground or cult and the truth of the matter is that is where we should be. Straightedge is not for the masses and it never will be, so as I see it we might have made a minor buzz for a minute then the world would move on and not give a s*** and we would have been tied to some corporate distribution that I am sure could have cared less about us. - more on this story
