Eisley

Indie-rock outfit Eisley releases their third album – The Valley – today (March 1st). In true Pirate Verbatim style, here is some old news to go with the new news!

In a September 2009 blog, the band of siblings blogged about the importance of illegal downloading for music itself. In part:

“. . . No matter what people pay or don’t pay… music has held it’s value. The price tag has little to do with that value. Music is life… it’s not a luxury we hope to afford or even a commodity we need to help make life bearable. . . Do I think it should have a price tag? Yes. Do I agree with those British artists currently ranting about illegal downloads (hurting the little guys)? Sure. It hurts bands like Eisley but it also helps bands like Eisley. . . ”

The blog is long, so head over to Eisley’s blog to find out WHY they say free music helps bands like Eisley.

Eisley signed to Warner Bros. Records in 2003 and left in 2010. At the end of the same year, they signed to Equal Vision Records, an independent label, who says: “We are entirely owned and operated with no outside financial support. We are however distributed by the Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA Music), which is a subsidiary of Warner Music Group.”
