Chimaira and Roadrunner Records part ways

Chimaira and Roadrunner Records have officially parted ways. The band has released the following explanation: "We asked to be let out of the contract and they graciously agreed to our request. We (Chimaira and Roadrunner) had not been seeing eye to eye on some key issues and came to a mutual agreement to end our relationship - and we are leaving on good terms with everyone there. Bands change labels all the time, but in this day and age everyone on the internet is an industry expert and will come up with their own theories as to 'what happened.' There is nothing more going on than what we already stated."

My friend threw a tomato at this band once while they were onstage. They got pissed and whined about it until he was thrown out of the show.

"Plans for the chimaira christmas album are now on hold"


killseverybody 4/13/2006 2:02:00 PM

it's possible roadrunner has been keeping chimaira from playing music like the bands they tour with. hopefully this means they'll drop the shit numetal and at least man up a bit.


fearB4 4/13/2006 2:28:29 PM

SHIT BAND!!!


xvegeedgex 4/13/2006 2:31:07 PM

xnvb 4/13/2006 2:54:09 PM

They anticipated the Lambgoat response and were prepared with this statement "everyone on the internet is an industry expert and will come up with their own theories as to 'what happened.'" Haaaa.

It's about time RR dropped Chimaira and started signing real metal bands like D&D: The Snake Cult Apocalypse.

The tomato story was okay until I started thinking about the dude planning it and sneaking a tomato into the venue, now he just looks like a dork.

"My friend threw a tomato at this band once while they were onstage. They got pissed and whined about it until he was thrown out of the show." ------ Find that really hard to believe.


SmellyPirateHooker 4/14/2006 10:05:55 AM

I laugh at all you gays that are calling these guys nu-metal. Obviously none of you pussies listened to the new album! Far from nu-metal.


look_ma_no_hands 4/14/2006 10:32:52 AM

Don't just stop at parting from Roadrunner! Break up all together! Do music a favor!


NIGdestroyer 4/14/2006 1:54:31 PM

"FULL BLOWN ASS RIPPING METAL!" bwahahaha. I forgot they had that on their gay shirt's. Haha. Ohh man. Classic. I put my money on trustkill or ferrett signing these guys. I mean, gays. Crap.
