Website releases is a tricky thing... But to be honest, the website releases have been growing fewer and fewer on their own, and it's likely they won't be many in the future regardless of what anyone says... We try to focus all our creative strength on album making these days...
But if we get to a point we want to release something on the site, I guess we'll make sure we get to do that. As I said, they're not unreasonable.
However, the problem comes with album releases. According to our label manager, Hannu, the copyright organisation Toesto (or sth like that) in Finland makes it illegal to display more than 1 minute of copyrighted material on a site, so when albums get copyrighted by Spinefarm these restrictions apply.
However, since we're located in Sweden, there might be some sway there, I do plan to explore it. For now, I've made samples (a bit longer than 1 minute though, you know, just to fuck the system a little teeny wii bit), in the hope of replacing them with full-sized songs later.
On MySpace however, there'll be four full-length songs for streaming later on.
Leicesterfox, thanks for understanding... To answer your question, yes, Poe is quite standfast on his and our principles, but we are all like that. We DID discuss (all of us) if we were willing to do as Spinefarm said, to remove parts of our material, but we agreed that no, we weren't willing to do that. So we informed Spinefarm of this, and they said "Ok, Your call."
Unlike mainstream performers, all we have is our music. We don't have dancers, or Max Martin, or choreographers, or whatever... We have our music, and our fans, and that's it. We're not about to compromise either.
