The Red Death dropped by Metal Blade

New York's The Red Death, who released an album with Metal Blade Records last year, have reportedly been dropped by the label. The move is rumored to be the result of "artistic differences," in addition to instability within the band. No official word has come down on the matter. Update: The band has issued the following statement: "Yes, we were dropped by Metal Blade. I can assure you that it was not because of 'instability within the band' because if there is such an instability, then I'm blind to it. We're just as strong as ever, and have been busy playing shows, writing some far less metalcore and more metal jams (which Metal Blade may or may not have liked the idea of, I don't really know) and finding a solid new bass player to replace Dominic. As far as "artistic differences" with Metal Blade are concerned, I'm not sure if that's the case. For those of you that care: Keep an eye/ear out for us, because we view this as an opprotunity, and we do NOT plan on quitting, we will continue to tour and release records for as long as possible. For those of you that don't care: Don't worry, I'm sure that we'll die in a van wreck soon enough. No care ever, pirst fost."
