Release 'Good News For People Who Love Bad News'
- Closed on
Well the album got a release date - which was the intention. Was it to do with the petition? Well no, I'd say there's little chance of that. But I'm pretending to myself that it was all me!
** UPDATE **
Did it work?! Yeah right. But the release date is now 30th March. Also -a limited edition 7" of "Float On" (b/w non-LP track "I've Got It All (Most)") will be out February.
** I'm taking this as a victory!
Sony/Epic, in their infinite wisdom, have decided not to release 'Good News For People Who Love Bad News', the new - completed - Modest Mouse album. It was due out September 2003, and has been put back to Spring 2004 - and maybe even later.
For those of us who have been waiting, and think that maybe Sony/Epic could appreciate this incredible band they have on their books, rather than treat them as some inconsequential small fry - I've started this petition to hopefully (yep, I don't hold out any hope they will listen either - but what the hell) get them to reconsider their god damned actions and get the album released now
We, the undersigned fans of Modest Mouse, urge Sony / Epic to show some support to a unique and talented band, who they are lucky to have on their label, by releasing their new album 'Good News For People Who Love Bad News'.
It may not bring in the revenue of Robbie et al, but it will show a commitment to real, original music - and that is priceless.
