Toh Kay (Streetlight Manifesto) im Kampf gegen Victory Records

Tomas Kalnoky von Streetlight Manifesto hat offensichtlich große Probleme mit Victory Records - die wollen nämlich laut ihm verhindern, dass sein Seitenprojekt Toh Kay ein Album herausbringt. Das Ganze ging jetzt soweit, dass Toh Kay ein neues Video bei Youtube und Vimeo veröffentlichten, Victory den Clip aber wieder offline nehmen ließ. Zumindest der Download des Songs funktioniert noch. Toh Kays Statement dazu:

"Some Men Are Just Born Rotten
So Victory Records and their lawyers are doing their very best to make this album (and anything associated with it) go away, for absolutely no good reason. And to be honest, as is often the case with rich cowards that hide behind desks, they seem to be winning. It's simply disgusting how a man and his company can be so consumed by hatred, selfishness and bigotry, that they will spend countless hours and large sums of money to ruin what others create.

You can download the song here for free. (Victory forced SoundCloud to take it down)
This song and its video are products of artists doing what they love. Please don't let the bastards who want to stop it win. Feel free to download both the video and the song and share them with whoever might be interested.
Thank you."
