Just a year and a half after signing
with Relapse Records
, New York City progressive/technical death metal band Pyrrhon
has apparently been dropped by the label due to the poor sales of the group's Relapse debut.
Here's what Pyrrhon had to say on the matter:
"Relapse Records have terminated their contract with Pyrrhon and will not be working on our next LP. The given reason for their decision was that The Mother of Virtues has not proven commercially successful, which will surely come as a major shock to anyone who's heard it. Our split with Relapse will not affect our upcoming European tour plans next month."
Undeterred, the band will release a new EP titled Growth Without End through Handshake Inc.
on June 2. The outing was tracked and mixed by Ryan Jones
, mastered by Colin Marston
, and, according to Pyrrhon, is their "fastest, scabbiest material to date."
