Periphery’s Mansoor Doesn't Care Much About Money

Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor has reacted to the recent comments made by Sumerian Records CEO Ash Avildsen. As reported yesterday Avildsen described his complicated relationship with the group and his frustrations with their career decisions on ‘The Jasta Show‘.

Misha Mansoor has stated earlier that he “makes no money from the band.” Ash Avildsen also revealed on ‘The Jasta Show‘ that Periphery has split with Sumerian Records and will be releasing their next effort independently.

Says Mansoor via Facebook:

“It’s pretty simple: We want Periphery to be a fun passion project and creative outlet. We don’t really care about being a massive band or making crazy money with the music, and that has been our approach since day one.

Ash is a businessman, and wants his bands to be financially successful. Sometimes that means our interests are at odds, and contractually we had set things up to be in our favor so we couldn’t be forced to make decisions we didn’t want to. With that said, and even in Ash‘s own words in the interview, when he came to us with good ideas, we definitely listened!

Ultimately we had a good run with them [Sumerian Records,] and I’m grateful for our time on the label, but we have wanted to try starting our own label for a while now, and we finally have the means to do so!”
