This press release was sent to me as an MS Word file. Rather than try to reformat it into a forum post, here is a PDF file of the press release, and I'm also posting pics below if people want to read it that way.

Not to stir up any shit, but I thought Bad Attitude was signed to SunCity...I just ordered their cd a few days ago.

A buddy of mine told me there was already a question regarding the two different bands with same name of BAD ATTITUDE. David (SunCity) and myself chatted about this months ago and we decided that Eonian's BAD ATTITUDE will not be released until late 2009. We could not help that there were two talented bands with the same name, but trust me ...they sound nothing alike. I think you will enjoy both bands, as I have SunCity's release as well ...GREAT stuff!

when do these actually get released?

Go to www.EonianRecords.com. Each band has their own page and most have a scheduled release date as well. For the most part, we will release between two and four CD's a month with those numbers increasing heading into 2010. Stay tuned as Dan and I are working something out for the loyal Heavy Harmonies visitors. Dan will let you all know the details shortly. Feel free to e-mail me with questions.

Can't wait for Sgt Roxx also heard some new tunes on their myspace page I've never heard before :-

Sgt Roxx

 

How about re-releasing the singers post band Monkey Cocktail cds?

Indie released on cdbaby and could sell more copies on a better distribution scale.

 

I was lucky to by the first release when they were Dying Breed from a kind soul on here and a very good price :banana:

Due to an agreement with Koch Entertainment, the earliest the releases can come out are March 19th....and I believe if you go to the website and click on the band photos, it will show the release dates.

>> Due to an agreement with Koch Entertainment <<

 

Not being a dick or anything here but I can see nothing good coming from this deal. Prepare for headache on top of headache.

 

I will normally not respond to statements like this, but this one I could not resist. I also do not want to sound like a "dick" but you obviously know the record industry better than the rest of us. I think these message boards are cool to talk about what's new, what good, etc., but there seems to be just one or two of people here that always seem to have the record industry all figured out and can obviously do things better than the ones who are actually doing it. Do you know anything about distribution? How about Koch Entertainment? You know ...it would be really easy to just make these CD's available on our website and on one or two online stores, but we want the best exposure for the bands and the label and signing with Koch is a big deal. If it means pushing things back to do things right ...then damn skippy. :headbanger:

 

If you go to our website ...we are no longer putting "guesses" on when CD's will be released. The dates will only be posted after the masters and art have been submitted to our distributors and the titles are being sold to stores. As my buddy Jim said ...the first batch will be available on March 19th. Everything has been sent to press and we are ready to finally launch this new label.

 

We hope you all enjoy!

You and I have spoken on the phone Stephen. Yes, as a matter of fact I know quite a lot about distribution, having been with ADA (Warner Bros) and well, Navarre (now E1 / Koch - the same deal you have, only I had one stepping stone cut out of the path) - for over a decade. I know how they operate, I know all about the "mysterious chargebacks" that come flying at you, and about the "buy ins" to Best Buy, Transworld and the like. I know what it costs to take a 'cut" in the Super D book. I know all about the fact that you (just as a for instance) are going to be paid LAST in the chain of command and how your first royalty cheque most likely WON'T happen until the third quarter of your agreement (and that's if you're lucky). Yes, Koch is a big deal (they also just laid off 25 employees I do believe) but you're a small company (not a slag, it's reality). Koch has a roster of some 500+ collective labels - 60% of which have been turning some sort of profit for them over the past decade. You're brand new and I doubt you have $100,000 to spend on each release (like Compendia, Sheridan Square, Bar None, Schanchie and some others have) so you're going to be one of the low men on the totem pole. I know exactly how your deal works and I'm telling you, in a year you're very likely going to have a major "what the fuck?!?!?!!!!" moment. Do I hope that you do? No, I don't want anyone to. I hope you sell 50,000 albums this year. Do I know "everything" about the music business? Of course not but I've been in it for over 20 years and it's the only real job I've ever had so I think I've learned a little bit along the way.

 

Do you know who Michael Rosenberg is? He took me to lunch - not once but twice. I've also had lunch with Bob Pickering - wonderful person - I'm sure you've at least spoken to him.

 

Good luck. I mean it.

    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor. 
    • Not at all what I thought a band called "Days of Wine" would sound like; I was expecting something much more laid back. This could be awesome, though.  There have been many days of wine in my life lately. ;}
    • Days Of Wine | Facebook   The self-titled “Days Of Wine” is the upcoming debut album from DAYS OF WINE, consisting of close friends from the Oslo / Norway rock music scene. After years of playing in their respective bands, it was time to join forces to make a high class melodic classic rock album. All are reputed musicians from the major Melodic Hard Rock scene; superb songwriter / keyboardist Leif Johansen (21 Guns, Phenomena), singer Leif Digernes (Westpoint), guitarist Tom Sennerud (Stoneflower), drummer Geir Digernes (Sons Of Angels) and guitarist Jon Johannessen (Stoneflower, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom). Some friends also came by and contributed to some of the songs, i.e. brothers Gregg Bissonette (drums, David Lee Roth) and Matt Bissonette, (bass, David Lee Roth, Joe Satriani), Jon Pettersen (Ammunition), Lars Andrè Kvistum (Conception) keyboards, and Ronni Le Tekro (TNT) dropping some guitar. You can’t go wrong with “Days Of Wine”; this is classic, traditional melodic hard rock / classic rock from the Scandi factory. During Spring 2021, ten songs were recorded for the self-titled debut at Stable Studios, Oslo. The songs are based on the lyrics of Leif Johansen but musically grounded in the Classic Rock genre. Leading the charge is the melodic and “raspy” voice of singer Leif Digernes. To emphasize the classic rock vibe, all backing tracks were recorded “live” in the studio. With such astute and accomplished musicians, it couldn’t have been done in any other way. 01 – Seven Days In Love 02 – Devil`s Bill 03 – Spread Your Wings 04 – Healerman 05 – Like The Others (feat. Markus Klyve) 06 – Never Stop Believing 07 – Angels In Disguise (feat. Gregg & Matt Bissonette) 08 – My Last Kiss 09 – Paint The Sky 10 – Days Of Wine Leif Digernes: Vocals (Westpoint, Bronx, Stuntbandet) Leif Johansen, Bass, keyboards, Vocals (21 Guns, Phenomena, A-ha) Geir Digernes, Drums/Percussion, (Sons Of Angels, Stuntbandet) Tom Sennerud, Guitar, Vocals (Stoneflower, Diezel) Jon Johannessen, Guitar, (Stoneflower, Diezel, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom)
