|Record companies, contracts

I have put off making a post about this for a while as I wanted to try and get myself sorted out with it before I did, but I think it's certainly time now.
At the beginning of April my record company dropped me from their books, citing the commercial failure of Sirens for it. Which is fair enough from a business point of view as the album hasn't actually earned enough money to break even from making it. (The only reason I'm not actually in debt over it is that I've earned songwriting royalties, performed shows, and the videoclip we filmed was done almost free as a favour from a friend.) What this all means for now is that I am without a label which, while giving me a certain freedom I didn't have before, means I also don't have a way to release my music in any tangible form.
That said, I will still continue to have digital purchases available and you can find them on the shop part of the website. I'll still be doing my outdoor basically-busking shows as I have been doing, but there won't be much more than that.
I'll keep everyone up to date with whatever happens and I like you all know. Much love to all the goth puppies who have been so supportive of me and I hope you continue to do so because this is when I'm really going to need it.
