Varsity Fanclub checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@varsityfanclub) on Tuesday (October 6), discussing how they’ve been in professional limbo of late, pinning the blame on their production company. The boyband, who were dropped by Capitol Records earlier this year, write:
We were created by a production company. This production company controls virtually everything we do based on our contracts with them. From the start of being signed to Capitol records, every decision was made by them whether good or bad.
You would think that when you sign a record deal everything in your dream comes true. Not in our case…… It is hard work….. Extremely hard work. When you sign, there is no money, no cars, no housing, or fame waiting for you. Only the dedication you have to your fans and your love of music. In fact, the only money we make is with merchandise, writing songs, or touring. What really sucks is when you work your tail off for three years, only to see all the money you have made be given to a certain company and then never given to us at all. Can you imagine being penny less when your working as hard as we are and you think your band is doing huge things, only to find that your being held back?!
Let’s set the record straight. Capitol never dropped us because we were “untalented”! They let us go because they couldn’t deal with “those who cannot be named.” Basically… it’s a lot like when a mom gives a little boy lunch money… but then a bully steals it… and then the little boy has nothing to eat for lunch…
