Now, Now Every Children checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@nownoweverychildren) on Friday (April 16), discussing how they’re planning to independently release new material after leaving their record label. The Minneapolis indie pop act write:
Due to irreconcilable differences, we have left our label, Afternoon Records. Needs were not being met and a middle ground could not be reached. We had been trying to make it work for a long time, but no real progress was made. It is an unfortunate situation, but we are excited to now be moving forward.
We have been distracted lately, but are now free to be working on new material for a full length! Since we are currently without a label to fund the next album, we’re not sure when we are going to be able to afford recording. But in the mean time, we will be putting out a little self released EP with a handful of previously unreleased songs. We will only be making 50 – 100 physical copies, but after that it will be accessible to purchase in MP3 form online. It will be more of an EP package with a Polaroid of the recording process and other goodies. It should be out some time in the next few months. We are trying really hard to be able to tour at some point this summer. And thanks to all of those who have been so generous to donate to our PayPal, we are inching our way closer to having a van to make that possible!
This is a fresh start for us. It is a little scary, but we are optimistic that we’ll figure something out.
Thank you guys for being patient with us, and we hope to get new material out to you soon! We will keep you updated about the makings of the EP and a more specific release date when all that information is solidified.
Your support means the world to us. We love you.
