The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ
Pay your bills bands
This is what happens if you don’t pay your record studio or your producer … your music gets turned into dance tracks. That’s exactly what happened to a hardcore band that didn’t pay their bills. The young hardcore band is Altitudes and they’ve got a new video, but it’s not something they put out or something they produced. In a video that was posted just a few days ago and has since gone viral, the opening statement is “What happens when a hardcore band doesn’t pay the engineer for his time and sweat he put into their mix and video? They get a horrible dance remix free of charge.” Well, the band took to the webs and said that they never intended to let the engineers hard work go unpaid.
