Neues von Touche Amore/Casket Lottery, The Wonder Years und All Shall Perish

Touche Amore und The Casket Lottery veröffentlichen eine 7"-Split via No Sleep Records. Als Release-Date ist der 2. Oktober angekündigt. Touche Amore sind darauf mit den Songs "Whale Belly" und "Unsatisfied (originally by The Replacements)" vertreten. The Casket Lottery steuern "White Lies" und "Myth (originally by Beach House)" bei.

The Wonder Years haben ein Video zum "Living Room Song" online gestellt. Der Song stammt vom kommenden Album "Year as a Ghost". Ihr findet den Song unter "weiterlesen".

Die Metal-Core-Band All Shall Perish hat ihr Label und den Distributor dazu gebracht, nicht weiter gegen Leute zu klagen, die ihr Album "This is Where it Ends" online getauscht hatten. Das Label Nuclear Blast dazu:
"Nuclear Blast and SKP Enforcement UG, who are experienced in tracking illegal downloads and the file sharing of music, recently decided to cooperate with World Digital Rights to fight against file-sharing piracy in the USA. In the United States, the providers are obligated by law to hand out the IP addresses of the computers from which the downloads / file shares were generated. By collecting this information, these companies are also acting in the interest of our artists, which is essential to the future of both our bands and the label.
To be able to recoup the investments both parties have made is crucial in order to produce new music and to survive in this business. Nuclear Blast, SKP Enforcement, and World Digital Rights want people to be aware that the peer-to-peer file sharing is illegal and hurts the bands and record companies they love.
That said, Nuclear Blast also respects bands such as All Shall Perish that do not wish to pursue file sharers. All Shall Perish was not consulted about this course of action and did not wish to participate in it whatsoever. When they learned about it, they immediately asked us to cease all legal action against their fans, file traders or otherwise, as soon as they learned this action had been taken in their name. Therefore,Nuclear Blast and World Digital Rights decided recently to stop legal actions against the file sharing with songs from the band All Shall Perish.
In all other cases, the parties involved pursue those violating copyright laws to avoid the financial loss they incur and to protect the value of their copyrights.
Nuclear Blast counts on the loyal fans which have been supporting the label and our bands for over 20 years now. Every sale helps support metal and the people that work hard to bring metal to the masses. For those that continue to buy music legally, that is something every loyal fan can be proud of."
