Dependent Records Closing Shop

German Record Label Dependent Records is closing their doors. The label's manager, Stefan Herwig, spells out the reasons for the label closing and they are grim indeed. It's easy to say record companies have nothing to lose when people download music for free. I've said it myself. This shows the other side in stark detail. I wish them all the best... and I just bought this. You should too.

Assemblage 23 Preorder Begins

Preorders have begun for Assemblage 23's first single, Binary, off their upcoming album Meta. The single will be released March 20th and can be had for the low price of $5.98 USD. I'm very much looking forward to this one.

VNV Nation Announces Supporting Act

From the mouth of Ronan himself:

I thought this deserved it's own blog entry.

The bands that will be coming with us on the Judgement Tour this year are ... *opens golden envelope*

North American Tour - And One
European tour - Imperative Reaction

The additional support for the European Tour will be "Modulate". This is a band that Tom Gold in Tampa introduced me to that I have been raving about for the last 6 months. Check them out at MySpace

I saw Imperative Reaction when they came through town with Covenant. I like some of their songs quite a bit, particularly "Giving In To The Change." The crowd didn't get into them so much, though. I felt a little bad for them. I don't know anything about And One. They are German... so they probably rock the house with precision.

Colony 5 Annouces Album Release Plans

According to Colony 5's site, "The plan is for at least one single release in early spring (perhaps in different media) and an entire album before summer. It may be adjusted to an autumn release but we would rather not. What is important is the quality though, so we will work on it until we are 100% satisfied but we will keep you posted regularly" and I'll try and keep the info posted here. Different media could mean an electronic release only, perhaps?

Seabound's Double-Crosser is Ichiban!

Seabound announced today they have clawed their way to the top of Germany's alternative music charts with their new album Double Crosser. Congratulations, fellows!

Seabound's Double-Crosser reaches #2 chart position in Germany

According to Seabound's own site, their album, Double-Crosser has reached #2 in the alternative charts in Germany. German radio must be really fantastic to listen to, I suspect, if people there actually enjoy this type of thing.
