Behemoth's Orion Not Happy With 'Bad Trend' With Venues

(TeamRock Radio) Behemoth's bassist Orion has criticized the "bad trend" of venues demanding a cut of bands' merchandise sales. He says that, like most other bands, touring is now Behemoth's main source of income - but adds that the additional charge makes it more difficult for musicians on the road.

Tomasz 'Orion' Wroblewski tells FreqsTV: "It's important to bring out merchandise to the people. They know they can buy some unique stuff at the shows which is much appreciated, because this goes directly to us.

"But some venues have started charging bands for selling their merchandise, which causes bands' rising prices of the merchandise. Three nights ago, I was counting everything that we need to leave in the venue - it was 42% altogether. This is becoming a bad trend. It's becoming like a Mafia. People should be able to get what they want for the prices that are fair." Read more here.
