mewithoutYou Discuss New Album

Posted by - 11:15 AM on 02/02/12
mewithoutYou are currently in-between labels and are contemplating where to release their new album.
From the InterviewRight now, we are in between labels. We have offers on the table to work with so-and-so and said label, but we are being very cautious of what our next move is. With the digital age moving on at the rate it is, we are wondering what the use in a label would be. Sure, there are benefits like handling all the things we don’t know about (i.e., distro, shipping, printing, promoting) but as grown men—some with families, some thinking about families—money definitely factors into the picture, and we just have to feel like we are getting a fair shake. We didn’t create this piece for cash in the slightest, but when there are consequences of putting your name in pen on lines which take a lot of control and funds out of your hands, it would be prudent to mull through all the options, hopefully finding one that appeals to all parties involved.

It's interesting because Rickie makes it sound like their going to release it through a label, but Mike seems pretty confident they will remain independent.

hey look at that, an intelligent band attempting to make informed and intelligent decisions regarding the business side of music so we don't have to read a lame thread about their dispute with a shitty label.

I think they would fit well on Favorite Gentleman, and since it's run by bands they probably don't screw anyone over.

I haven't really gotten into this band, but because of this info from them, I'll totally buy their new album. They sound like good respectable dudes.

Definitely where they should go. Fans of MO that haven't listened to mwY would jump right on board.

I need this in my life already, and self-comparisons to Brother, Sister are not helping me be patient.
