Jayk Purdy of Varsity Fanclub checked in with fans on the Los Angeles based boy band’s blog at MySpace (@varsityfanclub) on Wednesday (December 10). Purdy revealed that their self-titled debut album may be pushed back by their label Capitol Records due to poor online sales of their first single ‘Future Love’, making the label hesitant to pour more money into the project in current economic conditions. Purdy writes:
To the MAN………….
Hey y’all it’s your boys VFC.. Well we regret to inform you that our album is in danger of being pushed back once AGAIN.. The original date which all of you know is Jan. 13th… The reason being is because our single “Future Love” was available on the iTunes and no one is buying it because it was accessible on Limewire or whatever download sites months before… The people higher up unfortunately look at these statistics and think people are not “reacting” like they should and don’t think it’s the right time to put anything out yet… What they don’t look at is all of your amazing comments, the millions of plays we have, the millions of channel views, your constant promoting to all of your friends, your fan videos, your messages that we love reading, and your beautiful faces at our shows.. THE SAD REALITY is that if you don’t get on iTunes and buy the single our album is being pushed back to who knows when OR even us going over seas for a while to release.. This is heart breaking, but this is the situation we have been dealt.. Trust us we will come out on top with ALL OF YOU.. We love all so much, you have no idea.. Thank you
Jayk of VFC
