Vocalist Gerald Casale - who is also a noted music video director- commented on leaving the label:
The band made headlines after releasing "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Seamus Unleashed)" which criticized Republican candidate Mitt Romney - not for his policies - but for his appalling mistreatment of his family dog, Seamus. The group is donating a portion of the proceeds from the single to no-kill animal shelters. It will be released on August 26, 2012 via iTunes and Amazon.
There's really no reason for us to be with a record label right now. I like that idea of using songwriting in a different way, and you can't even think about releases and albums anymore. It's kind of irrelevant to the creative space online and the way people buy things now.
