Avenged Sevenfold deixam Warner Bros. Records

Os Avenged Sevenfold deixaram uma mensagem no seu site oficial onde relatam que terminaram a sua filiação com a Warner Bros. Records (WBR), empresa com quem já trabalhavam desde 2004.
Esta separação dever-se-á à constante mudança de regime de funcionamento da empresa e de responsáveis de marketing e também ao facto de que nenhum dos executivos responsáveis pela contratação dos A7X em 2004 estar a trabalhar na WBR atualmente.
A banda também diz que, ao contrário do que certos sites têm dito, nunca tentaram renegociar o contrato original que fizeram com a WBR.

A banda também menciona que está já a compôr as músicas para o novo álbum e esperam entrar em estúdio muito em breve. Por fim dizem que estão a prever lançar o álbum no final deste ano.

Eis a mensagem na íntegra:
We recently exercised our rights under California law and notified Warner Bros. Records we would no longer record for them. Few of the executives who have been integral to our continued success are still at the label, and we love and are grateful to them for their hard work. However, since we signed with the label, Warner Bros. has had 3 different regimes, multiple heads of marketing, and none of the senior management or A&R executives who were at the company and responsible for signing us are still there.

Whatever the activity, it takes a full team to compete, and we no longer know most of our teammates. In the coming days, you may read about the lawsuit our label filed against us for exercising our legal rights, rights the State of California granted specifically to protect artists. You may see mistaken facts or worse.

One such error we want to make sure you know about: Avenged Sevenfold has never renegotiated its original recording agreement with Warner Bros. Records. Billboard has now corrected its story to reflect the real facts.

Most importantly, we want our fans to know this: we are in the middle of writing a record we cannot wait for you to hear. We expect to go into the studio very soon, and look forward to releasing our new album later this year.


Until then, we wish all of you a happy, healthy 2016.

Love,
A7X
