In an email letter to fans on the band's mailing list, BRMC's Robert Turner spilled the beans that the band is "free free free from Virgin Records." According to Turner, BRMC has been fighting to get out of its deal for the last six months. "There are many reasons we wanted to leave Virgin but instead of going into that, and digging up the past, we'd rather just look forward." The band is currently on a US tour with The Rapture and in the midst of servicing their third single, "In Like The Rose," to radio. The tour will go on as planned because the band wasn't receiving tour support from Virgin anyway, but they're worried that the single may now just fall through the cracks.
"We're trying to get help from outside promoters to get the single out there but it's hard. The support you give us now though is what we really need. Just calling up your radio station or whatever in the city you live in and asking to play the song is a big deal. I know it sounds like a pitch or whatever but the song means more to us than anything and we want it to be heard."
Turner calls the their part with Virgin "the greatest day in the band's somewhat short history." They have many plans for the future, but we're just going to have to wait and see what happens. We'll keep you posted.
