Another (shitty contract) bites the dust... Trail of Dead go label free

Directly citing Trent's decision as an influence, ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead announced on Halloween that they are leaving stagnant Interscope Records. Frontman Conrad Keely had given thought to leaving "several hundred times in recent years, but I think the Nine Inch Nails decision and Trent's phone call really sealed the deal for me." He continues, "Hopefully the other bands [on the label] will follow our lead[...] There aren't many bands on the roster left to ruin." Thanks to chris for the update, and for poking me about that Coil DVD (d'oh!)
