As of last month, Nashville pop-rock crunchers JEFF The Brotherhood were all set to release Wasted On The Dream on Warner Bros. Not anymore! The band released a statement today announcing that Warner Bros. has dropped them and they’ll be releasing the new album on their own label, Infinity Cat, two weeks past the original release date. They sound pretty relieved about it, too. Here’s the statement in full:
Hello friends and fans and family and hello people of the press and people of the industry!
We, JEFF The Brotherhood, are SO FUCKING PLEASED to announce that we have been DROPPED from the clutches of the demented vulture that is Warner Bros! We feel as though a heavy weight has been lifted from our shoulders, and could not be more excited.
As for our album, “Wasted on the Dream”, it is finally coming out March 24th on Infinity Cat Recordings – our spiritual, as well as literal home.
It was a very strange experience working with WBR. Luckily, we help to run an indie label that has its shit together more than the big guys, and the announcement comes today from Infinity Cat. The records are pressed, and we are poised and ready!
It’s true what you’ve heard, the era of the major label is over, we have seen it first hand. Upwards and onwards!
-JEFF The Brotherhood
