Most Precious Blood cover art update

By now, you've no doubt heard about the disagreement between Most Precious Blood and R.E.D., Trustkill Records' distribution company, regarding the cover art (view the cover here) of MPB's upcoming album, "Our Lady Of Annihilation." Well, it seems that after several meetings, R.E.D. has agreed to distribute the record without any change in artwork. The band has released the following statement: "After nearly an entire week of meetings, we have won the war on the artwork. R.E.D. agreed to distribute the record with the cover art 'as is'. There will be a small sticker slapped over 'the bomb' on the shrinkwrapping for our valued WalMart customers, but for the rest of the world (read: people that actually matter), the album will released as we wanted it with nothing changed or censored. We saw this as a very minute compromise compared to the original solution we were faced with, which was 'change the cover art entirely or the record doesn't come out'. We'd like to thank all the people who wrote to us with support and everyone at Trustkill for sticking by us through this ordeal. Also, thanks to R.E.D. for hearing us out." Look for the CD to hit stores on November 18th via Trustkill, with Deathwish Inc. now scheduled to release a 12" vinyl version of the effort.
