Electro-rockers Innerpartysystem have announced their split with Island Records.
In an official statement the band comments:
“There are some really amazing, overworked, underpaid, stressed out people who love music, working very hard there… and there are a handful of people who just didn’t really understand this band, and didn’t know how to react when ‘Don’t Stop’ wasn’t Lady GaGa‘s ‘Just Dance.’ Our bad there.
“At the end of the day, our label teams made this past year possible, gave us the freedom to make the album we wanted to make, and provided the opportunity for us to build our (albeit extremely modest) studio and stage show. So thank you! This is a very exciting time for us.”
On a lighter note the band are offering a free mixtape download to coincide with their summer-long run on the Vans Warped Tour in the States and the launch of a new forum-based website.
“Innerpartysystem.net is a forum site specifically for IPS fans where we can communicate with you directly, and most importantly, use it as a place to give you free exclusive music, videos, and whatever else the gods of the interweb may dream up.”
The mixtape features many remixes done by the band over the last year. You can get the mix here by registering on the new site.
