Mere days after firing their frontman, White Wizzard reports it has parted ways with Earache Records and will launch its own record label, White Wizzard Records.
Good luck with that, fellas.
The band claims the parting was mutual. I call bullshit.
“Excited to announce that we will be going independent and we have mutually parted company with Earache Records,” says the band.
“We wish them the best. This has been a decision made before the tour over the past couple of months. I appreciate the initial interest in White Wizzard and hope other bands that are with them do well.
“I am currently in the process of forming my own record label which shall be called White Wizzard records. I plan to form a couple of other projects next year. The guys in the band will now have an actual vested interest in making some [money] from album sales and our merchandise which is fantastic,” says the statement.
“I will be releasing a blog soon with some advice on record labels and how I think most bands should avoid that road and the pros and cons. One silver lining is we have had some great singers come forward with interest and I think we should be announcing someone within a few days, and I wrote a song I am excited about yesterday and am about to get on a writing tear I believe.
“While guys that have been fired by me that have an agenda will continue to spew nonsense and lies trying to stir the pot and hurt the band, I will continue to write songs and put out music. We will not keep the shit flying back and forth. We will just wish them well and get on with it. I know the music is what counts and it is why I got into this, not for the dumb shit.The fans do not want to hear the crap, they want to hear good songs. In the end the truth is on our side and our intentions are nothing more than to make great music. Here is to a positive outlook in the coming months.”
