MetalSucks recently caught up with 3 INCHES OF BLOOD vocalist Cam Pipes before their hometown show in Vancouver with BISON B.C. Pipes spoke about touring in support of the band's most recent record, the band's split with Roadrunner Records, writing new material, and what the future holds for 3 INCHES OF BLOOD. An excerpt follows:
MetalSucks: One of the major events this year is that you’ve split with Roadrunner records. What happened to that relationship between the label and the band?
Cam Pipes: It was time for them to decide if they were going to pick up the option for the next record. They didn’t and we’re happy about it because we didn’t really like being with that label. There was a lot of things inside the label that we didn’t like in terms of how they showed their support for us and how they pushed our band in the press. We really didn’t see eye to eye on a lot of things. They’re a really big corporate label now owned by Warner, so they’re moving strictly in a “We want to make money” direction and we weren’t putting up the numbers that they would have liked to see. We got dropped on the priority list time and time again and then they finally decided that it wasn’t economically viable to keep releasing this band. It's enabled us to be a lot more creative on where we want to go. We’re not tied down to a long term contract anymore, so we can go explore other options and hopefully we’ll be a little more free to do certain things with a label that’s a lot more focused to promote us in a better way and [is] more geared towards our style.
MetalSucks: Are you looking for a label right now or are you happy to be an unsigned touring band?
Cam Pipes: We started looking for labels right off the bat and we’re still weighing our options, but we think we might be getting close. I’m not going to give away any names of potential labels right now but something could happen soon. We’re going to keep writing either way. That was always our focus to just be writing around this time and putting out new songs.
