Artery Recordings acquired by Warner Bros.
Artery Recordings, the label founded in 2009 by The Artery Foundation owner Eric Rushing, has been acquired by Warner Bros. Records, according to a report at Alternative Press. The entire label staff has been let go as a result of the acquisition, the terms of which have not been divulged. Heretofore label President Shan Dan Horan issued the following to Alternative Press: "I can't disclose too much about the deal, but building up this company to a million record sales in just five years is a tremendous accomplishment for the fans, our artists and the team. I'm humbled and appreciate each and every band I've ever had the honor of developing at Artery Recordings. As we hand over the keys to Warner, I'm not quite sure their plans for the label or catalog, but I hope they keep the legacy alive. With new Slaves and Capture albums on the horizon, I'm sure the fans will be ecstatic." Current and former Artery Recordings artists include Attila, Vanna, Chelsea Grin, Bury Tomorrow, I declare War, and Slaves. It's not clear which of the label's current artists will move to Warner, though if the post below is any indication, Slaves will indeed be on the Warner Bros. roster.
