Phoenix based outfit Greeley Estates have posted a new song, simultaneously announcing their departure from Tragic Hero Records.
The band is currently preparing two EP’s. Subsequently, Greeley Estates posted the following on their Facebook page:
"As you have all seen we love to hole up and get lost in our music while writing and recording. Its obvious by our lack of posts on Facebook and Twitter over the last few months. Here is the other side of the story that we haven't filled you all in on. We have decided to part ways with our Label Tragic Hero Records and release this record independently. (There's absolutely no hard feelings towards them, we love Tommy, Randy and everyone at Tragic and appreciate all they have done for us) That said.. we decided that it was time for us to do this on our own. We know we aren't the first band to do this but it seems to make sense for a lot of bands our size to fully own their own music. We decided not to do a Kickstarter or ask for any money to support this project. You all have stuck with us for this long so we know we can count on you to be there for us now.
We have funded this album ourselves, and because this will be a 100% independent release, The Narrow Road/Devil Son will be digital releases only. For most of you we know that this wont be a problem. Its the only way we are able to do this under the circumstances. We have all agreed that when the records reach a certain number in sales we will print physical copies as well. IF THERE WAS EVER A TIME WE WOULD ASK YOU ALL TO ACTUALLY BUY A RECORD, IT WOULD BE NOW. The sales from this record go to the band directly and help us pay off the studio costs, purchase a new vehicle (RIP RV) and also make it possible for us to continue writing/recording/releasing music. Stealing this record will actually be hurting us directly. You all know we appreciate your support and believe you will continue to have our backs. .....If we were doing this for the money we would have quit years ago
We will keep you all posted on the latest news and the release date.
