Pentimento are not releasing their debut album via Paper + Plastick Records and Black Numbers today, but they are releasing it for free without any physical distribution. Panic Records, the band’s former label, has continued to threaten to sue the band and those involved with them without apparent right or reason, which has lost the band the support they both needed and expected.
Along with downloading the record for free, the band is asking fans to donate any money they can in replace of paying for the record so they can continue on. Download/donate to the record here and read a lengthy message from the band below by clicking “Read More.”
Update: Panic Records Releases Statement On Pentimento
Go support the shit out of this band. Fuck all the drama attached to this situation. This band is full of great musicians, hard working people, and all around fantastic people. It seems like what it comes down to is someone who is upset that the band got a better offer and would be leaving this record label behind.
Just for the record, I have worked with Panic Records in the past, with no issues, but it seems something is just off here. Really sucks to see a record label you respect act so childish.
