Not screwing the fans

Not screwing the fans - 2006-03-03

2006-03-03 - EDGUY frontman Tobias Sammet has posted a statement on the band's official web site explaining why the band weren't selling any merchandise at their March 1 headlining show at Arenan in Stockholm, Sweden:<br><br>&quot;As sad as it is, the company that holds the rights to sell the merchandise at that venue in Stockholm was asking for a ridiculously high commission. They have been doing that for years and so far all bands kissed ass and gave in to the absurd demands of those parasites. Just because they rather add the commission to the original sales price and hope that they sell at least a few shirts to those who are determined enough to buy them, according to the principle: Any money is good money, let's get all we can take. THAT'S NOT FAIR!!! In a band meeting we decided to rather not to sell any shirt than screwing our fans. Stupid from a business point of view, but we do not wanna blow YOUR money into some businessmen's asses. Fuck that. I hope they will reduce their provision rates in the future. This step was unavoidable to give a signal. It's not acceptable to feed parasites with the money of our fans!!! We hope you understand that!&quot;<br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=680"><u>EDGUY</u></a>&quot;
