Did not see this coming at all. But I have so much love for this band, stoked they're recording with Sapone. Congrats!

yep, that's exactly what i mean. haha RFC needs to sign Mixtapes already too.

The best bands up for grabs on RFC now are Tigers Jaw, Hostage Calm and Basement

I definitely see TJ and HC leaving soon. Surprised Daytrader got signed before they did...

Those bands aren't up for grabs because we're doing all of their next releases, and even further past that with Tigers Jaw. Yeah, This Is Hell, Daytrader, Man Overboard and Transit all worked with Run For Cover, but none of those bands 'were stolen'. It was 95% amicable in all situations and half the time never even affected RFC or affected us positively.

I ddin't mean it like that, I just meant no band stays on a small label like RFC forever. Eventually they blossom onto bigger labels and move on. RFC/No Sleep are my favorite label and I wish all the bands would stay on them but yeah

Well I'm glad your doing theyre releases I trust your guys judgment with everything you do because I can't recall a release you put out that I havent liked. And all the artists you've been signing lately rule and I can't wait for their new records as well (Seahaven and Young Statues specifically)

Stolen was also the wrong word. It's just I remember looking at the RFC roster and seeing basically all my favorite bands. I love all the current ones but I'm sure you get what I'm saying.

I also thought Transit and Man Overboard were huge to RFC? They seemed to give the label a huge push forward

"Well I'm glad your doing theyre releases" my grammar-loving heart just collapsed.

grammar police, ut oh

thanks for all the kind words guys. working with jeff has been great, he has been WAY ahead of the curve for a few years now and is still proving it with bands like seahaven and young statues. Seahaven full length is one of the best of the year.

there's more info about the signing, new members, etc @ blogtrader.tumblr.com

My bad. Didn't realize you were one of those guys. I'll proof read every post in all the threads your in from now on, so your heart doesn't collapse.

They basically already have that with Kris Crummett, Cameron Mizell, and Joey Sturgis.
