Sumerian Records Speak On Abandoning Spotify
Sumerian Records have taken to their Twitter to address some recent criticism leveled at them for pulling much of their roster from the streaming music service, Spotify. The label, whose artists include Asking Alexandria, Born Of Osiris, etc., offered the following response:
“we rather be able to send our bands around the world on tour, make music videos and continue to support their careers and livelihood. Go to youTube if you want to hear all music. We are all about exposure but only major labels have equity in spotify. all us metal labels will join forces and make our own so that our artists can still eat.”
Could such a union be wishful thinking or a glimpse into the future? Either way, you can find some more insight into Sumerian‘s reasoning via Metal Sucks.
