Great read and article all around. I have so much respect for people like this still doing it for the pure love of the music. Not for profit, gain or cred. I'll support this label forever and look forward to the many years to come accompanied with many more wonderful bands and releases. Hopefully one day I can work with such great people in the music industry. Thanks No Sleep.
