Suffocation and Relapse Records part ways

Monday, June 4, 2007 1:54 PM PT


Suffocation's contract with Relapse Records has run its course and the band is now officially without a label. Here's a statement from the group:

"Suffocation is happy to announce that we've fulfilled our contractual obligations to Relapse Records and are now free agents again. We would like to thank all on the Relapse staff for their support and efforts. We've learned valuable lessons over the past few years.

We are looking forward to what the future will bring, we have many goals and ideas in the works that will definitely make for a focused and eventful future for the band. At this point of our career the goal is to make the next steps the most important ones. Propelling the band as well as the Extreme metal genre to the next level is top priority.

It is long over due and we look forward to the challenge and opportunity to right the wrongs that has kept the genre underground and unexposed since its inception. Stay tuned."

6/4/2007 3:16:54 PM
They won't sign to Roadrunner, that's for sure.

6/4/2007 3:26:40 PM
maybe metalblade should step up and sign a band worth a shit

6/4/2007 3:31:34 PM
good band, they deserve more than JFAC thats for sure

6/4/2007 3:46:32 PM
I only wish the best for Suffocation. They deserve so much more.

6/4/2007 3:50:05 PM
maybe they'll get signed to Atlantic haha

Best fcking band. Period. Every band should sound like this. Once that happens, every band that sounds like this should all get together and burn this new grind/metal/core obsession down to the fcking grownd.

6/4/2007 6:06:31 PM
Suffocation signs with Lambgoat Records

6/4/2007 6:40:03 PM
This band should have remained broken up and left the legacy they created untainted. Souls to deny<beer shits. S/t is an improvement, but not amazing. Ill be the first to say it I guess

6/4/2007 6:59:16 PM
I was talking to Adam Jarvis (misery Index) and he said relapse is pretty good..he said they pay for plane tickets an sheit like that..so there not a completely horrible label

6/4/2007 8:42:49 PM
come on...this is a metal band. they always think they are entitled to more than they are and the grass is always greener on the other side.
