The band is the second departure from the label in as many months. The band is planning their next release through Side One Dummy Records, with a new 7-inch called Vehicle City Blues due out May 29, 2012. It is the follow-up to Good for Me which was released in 2011 and 2009's Ups and Downsizing.
We've had a good run with them and have a lot of appreciation and respect for everyone at the label. While we wish the staff and their bands the best of luck, we've come to the conclusion that being part of a major label just isn't the right fit for us right now. On May 29th, we're releasing a 7" of two songs that weren't on [our last album. They're some of our fastest, most aggressive songs we've made to date. The 7" title came from the song "Vehicle City Blues," which we wrote about the recent effects of a serial killer in Flint, MI. We're planning on releasing an EP on our own later this year before signing with a new label for an album sometime in 2013.
