Hey, I mean assuming they're like 15 or something - I didn't mean that as a dig.

Whatever.

Assuming that our album comes out next year, (big assuming,) there are definitely precedent for well-known labels that put out artists who don't intend to tour a lot--that said, we didn't get an advance really, and the producer was not a really expensive one. And when I say "we," it's more like me and my gf. Not really a "band." So there's that. Our producer, though, is a veteran of many bands, and was on an associated label of Mute's, and he's a bit more cavalier about finding another label for his current band. We just sent out demos to labels that we liked, and literally that was it. Needless to say, it wasn't the best strategy, probably--but still. Not to jinx it completely, but our label head has been very patient with us (me and gf both have day jobs and whatnot.)

Have you thought about approaching other labels with your press/demos?

^ I meant precedence.
