THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER Frontman Says The Band Might End If "Fans" Don't Buy 'Everblack'
Trevor Strnad from THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER recently posted the following statement on his bands Facebook page in regards to illegal downloading in anticipation his bands NEW album 'Everblack' (available this June via Metal Blade Records):
"HOW IT IS: We have almost 1,000,000 likes on here. Will we sell 1,000,000 copies of 'Everblack'? Fuck no! The reality is that 98% of you ‘fans’ are going to be content to steal the album and in turn we get nothing… a laughable fragment of the ‘likers’ will actually be cool and pick it up.
"It’s not about the money, the reality is that we get chump change for CD (and digital) sales BUT WE NEED TO SELL THEM TO EXIST! If there are no record sales the music industry will stomp us out like a bug and it’ll be completely over… the sales show them ‘how relevant’ we are.
"If you don’t buy the albums they’ll determine that there is no demand for TBDM, and there won’t be any more awesome concerts, tours, DVDs nor new music. Sure we understand you may really love our tunes, but if you haven’t paid for them, it’s a total loss to us… all the love in the world isn’t going to mean shit in the end. We need your support and every two years I am going to ask the same thing of you and make the same goddamn argument.
"Think of it like a vote… If you’d like to see us continue our reign of terror over the Metal world, you’ll pick up a copy of 'Everblack'. It’s as simple as that.
– Trevor on behalf of The Black Dahlia Murder
The bands sixth studio album was recorded at Audiohammer Studios in Florida and will be released this June all over the world! Here is a NEW song called "Into The Everblack". Crank it proudly!
