Finally, we can talk about this now. The new Skull Fist album is finished, it has been for about a year now. Back in 2011, we signed an amazingly terrible record deal and have been stuck with that ever since. It never sat right with me that 85% of what we earned while digging heavy metal trenches was going into someone else’s hands. We hired a lawyer to try and ditch the deal and ended up with only one option which was to buy out the contract for a large amount of itchy scratchy dollars and pay for the new record out of my own pocket. $20,000 later here we are. Unfortunately we did not have enough bucks to buy back the rights for our previous records so good luck finding those on CDs and vinyl. Now we have a finished record and a lovely debt- but for the first time our album is in our control. None of this info is for drama points or some crap, not even death can stop the tunes from flowing so it’s all water under the fridge. I just think it’s important to share the reality of this instead of pretending to be rich and successful cool guys.
Now the better news, we have agreed to release the album with the new label- Atomic Fire Records. We managed to work out a fair deal in which I’m not giving out handys to anyone. Markus and Flori are good dudes in the fist book and I doubt the Scooby Doo ending on this. We’re optimistic with all this. We will release a video in February and the album will be out in April, of course I’ll have more updates and all that jazz for you over the next bit. Also, I’m pretty stoked on this next album, it’s pretty heavy with less whining than Way of the Road. Either way, FCK THE WORLD, LONG LIVE THE FIST!
Καλά τα νέα αλλά θα το γράψω δεν αντέχω:
Τι φάση ρε φίλε; Πόνεσε λίγο αυτό το 20.000$ και το όλο στορυ με το συμβόλαιο.
