“Just gimmie a scene where the music is free.”
Against Me! has gone major.
The Florida punk band confirmed rumors that they’ve signed to Sire Records, a subsidiary of the Warner Music Group (which is also home to labels including Reprise, Rhino, Elektra, and Warner Bros.).
A new record will be released in 2007.
I’m not sure what to say about that, other than maybe quote the band themselves…
“We want a band that plays loud and hard every night / That doesn’t care how many people are counted at the door / That would travel one million miles / and ask for nothing more than a plate of food and a place to rest.”
I guess a big-money major label contract would feel pretty good too, eh? Then again, that song (“Reinventing Axl Rose”) was written in the band’s early days. And they never said they wouldn’t sign to a major if the right opportunity came their way… still, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
