Terror have fulfilled their obligations with Century Media, who licensed the band's last two albums to Victory Records, and are now "free of all contracts."
"Nick had also mentioned to me today he already wrote a few new songs that he thinks I'm going to love. This for sure gets me siked. Terror has now finally fulfilled all contracts with all record labels and the future is wide open for us. We signed a 4 record 'deal' with Century Media, I don't know - 9 years ago or something like that, but we have delivered them all the records (CM licensed the last two to Victory [Records] in the USA) and now we are free of all contracts. This is super exciting for us and opens up a lot of different...

I recently spoke to Mikey Carvajal, lead vocalist of Islander, while the band was wrapping up their tour with Korn and Suicide Silence.

Spotify has apparently put Victory Records' catalog back on their streaming service. No word yet on whether this decision was fast enough to save Victory employee's jobs.

Update: Just heard from Victory Records. Regarding the resolution, they stated:
Nobody’s job was ever in jeopardy. Tony was speaking rhetorically when he was quoted. We’re glad to have our content back on Spotify, and that we came to a good resolution that works for everybody, ensuring that our fans can listen to the music they love on Spotify and that all of our artists and songwriters are paid for their work.

The International Business Times is reporting that an email Tony Brummel sent to staff indicates that Victory Records will have to lay off staff if they're not paid by Spotify.
Nearly two weeks after Spotify pulled all of his artists’ and songwriters’ music off its service, Victory Records founder Tony Brummel says that unless his label’s catalog is placed back on Spotify soon, he will be forced to begin laying off staff and dropping artists. “They are over 70 percent of our monthly digital sales,” Brummel wrote in an email circulated to undisclosed recipients Friday. “Sorry to curse but in a few months -- I am f---ed.”

Courthouse News Service, out of Chicago, is reporting that Victory Records is suing Streetlight Manifesto.
Having received notices from Victory objecting to the release of the infringing Toh Kay album, Kalnoky informed the label that the band considers itself no longer bound by the 2002 agreement, according to the complaint. Victory seeks more than $1 million in damages for the band's failure to deliver a fourth studio album, pursuant to its record contract, and damages for copyright infringement.

Streetlight Manifesto thinks it's ironic that Victory Records apparently hasn't seen royalties from Spotify.
Ironically, Victory Records hasn't paid us a cent in royalties in over 2 years. More info soon
Jason Tate on 10/20/15 - 11:26 AM
Amidst an ongoing royalties dispute, Spotify has removed thousands of songs from bands signed to Victory Records.
Based on an audit by a small technology company called Audiam Inc., Another Victory says that Spotify hasn’t paid publishing royalties for the compositions underlying thousands of recordings that Spotify users have listened to millions of times over the past several years.

Emmure is MY blood sweat and tears ..MY band born from my thoughts and my hard work and writing (I'm sure you can see the change from early Emmure to now so if they say they wrote it you know it's a lie; I was actually forced to say it was an even split wether it was money or writing credits) it will never be theirs as much as they can fake it that's all it is .. fake.

PropertyOfZack is reporting on a new A Day To Remember and Victory Records case development that alleges the band paid John Janick (at the time of Fueled By Ramen) a sum of $450,000 over a period of four years as a manager to the band. However, the court has ruled that Janick was not acting as a manager and that means a variety of things for the case, including that Janick can now be deposed. You can read a rundown of the case here and view the latest document (sent in by Tony of Victory Records) here.

What appears to be the original version of A Day To Remember's "The Document Speaks For Itself," allegedly featuring a threatening voicemail from Victory Records' Tony Brummel, has surfaced.

Curious what this video referenced in the voice mail is? Some insight from videographer Drew Russ:
I sent Victory an edit of the "2nd Sucks" Music video I did. It had a watermark over the video which read "Victory Records Proof" like you know, a proof of a photo, that you look at before it's final. (This was standard, They asked for a water marked version)

Tony gets it and thinks it means like Victory Proof like Fire Proof or something. Gets mad, calls me. I thankfully let it go to voicemail,...

You either care about the current A Day to Remember vs Victory Records court case or you don't, and if you do, odds are you are a little confused about just what the fuck is going on. I'm going to be speaking with the band shortly for a longer piece about the new album and the ongoing legal stuff, and we've already read the statements from Victory. After pouring over countless court documents, talking to a variety of legal sources, and caring way too much about this (yeah, this stuff fascinates me, in another life, I wanted to argue in a courtroom instead of a message board all day) -- I've begun piecing together what we currently know.

First, if you just care about the music, here's...

Update: AP.net writer, Thomas Nassiff, has reached out and recieved a statement from Victory Record's lawyer, Robert S. Meloni.
While Victory is disappointed with the ruling, and disagrees with the court's conclusions, it comes as no surprise. Courts rarely grant negative injunctions of this nature, but the circumstances of this case presented a unique opportunity for such a ruling. Having said that, in denying Victory's motion, the court's reasoning actually contained silver linings that significantly favored Victory. First, the court held that it supports Victory's argument about the construction of the recording contract – that ADTR is still obligated to deliver two more albums to...

PropertyOfZack is reporting that A Day To Remember will be self-releasing its upcoming new album, Common Courtesy, on October 8th despite the unresolved nature of its lawsuit against Victory Records. We'll keep you updated.
The band announced the release date for Common Courtesy at 11:30 p.m. EST this past Friday. No record label — Victory Records or otherwise — made an official announcement or issued a press release regarding the album following the band’s release date confirmation. With less than six weeks before Common Courtesy comes out, it looks as though A Day To Remember are timing the release of the album with their fall arena tour. Six days following the band’s original...

What do we do? We make it easy for that guy who wants to sing in a metal, hardcore, punk or rock band (but doesn’t have the music-writing friend to help him) write songs. We also make it easy for someone struggling with writing their own music in a band get consistent by writing songs that they can learn, as theirs, and branch off from there.
