Vile Seeks New Label Home and Post New Demo Song, "Wolf at Your Door," Online

Guitarist Colin Davis of the Californian brutal death metallers VILE has posted the following message on the band's MySpace page:

"Two new things for today. One is that we have uploaded a new song to our MySpace page. It's a demo version of a song that will appear on our forthcoming album. As I have stated in a previous blog, our new album will be out most musically diverse album to date. The new song 'Wolf at Your Door' is not our slowest song or our fastest song, but it is quite different from what we have done in the past and it stands as an example of the kind of diversity that will be included in this release."

"The second piece of news is that we are seeking new label representation. We have been very pleased to have worked with both Listenable Records and Unique Leader Records in the past. We appreciate all they have done for us. Unfortunately, things change, artists and labels don't see eye to eye on various issues and parting ways is sometimes inevitable."

"The Internet has become the new way that music is discovered and promoted and the old ways of selling music are coming to an end. Because VILE has 12 years of development time behind us to stand on, we no longer need the same kind of label representation that we desired in the past. Now we seek a business relationship with a company or companies that are embracing the internet as the new medium for music promotion and distribution, are excited about the future and have the energy and vision to stand with a band like VILE who is daring enough to challenge the extreme metal status quo. Unfortunately, Internet only promotion is not yet possible so we seek a label or labels who also have their tentacles into the old distribution system as well."

"Change is not easy for artists or business people. But if change is not embraced, death will follow. VILE seeks to change before extreme metal reaches an absolute dead end. We feel that if bands and labels do not start to step out of the box and offer something truly new, they will become extinct like the dinosaur. Many will say that they are providing something new, but we all know very well that this scene is stuck and if people do not offer something drastically new and improved, it will die. It's time for major change in this industry, and VILE seeks to work with a record label or labels who have the vision to accomplish something truly new and invigorating and the experience to get it done right. Interested parties, please contact Colin Davis through the Myspace page with 'label interest' or similar in the subject line."
