Desert Parts Ways With Sleaszy Rider Records

Israeli power metal band Desert has issued the following announcement about splitting with Sleaszy Rider Records:

"Desert's way had many unexpected turns and we sure had to make some tough decisions on our way, over the last 10 years.

"Splitting paths is never easy! Nevertheless, we are announcing that Desert has decided to depart from it's record label, Sleaszy Rider Records. This was a decision taken by the band, and all six of us agreed on it.

"Desert released it's debut album, Star of Delusive Hopes, through Sleaszy Rider Records, in January 2011, and it's been a great period for us, many awesome shows played, many great friends made, both in Israel and abroad!

"While deep into writing and preparing the next album, we've reached a point, where our vision of how we should develop, promote, and support the band was not shared by the label.

"So we sat down, drank some beers, and decided it is time to try and do things our way this time! The contract between Desert and Sleaszy Rider Records was terminated and we stayed friends, with no hard feelings.

"We, Desert, wish Sleaszy Rider the best of luck in business, and hope to see many productive years and many great metal albums from this label! We have not decided yet whether we'll be looking for a label to publish the next album, probably to be released within a year. Hopefully, a partner, with ideas simillar to ours, will be found."
