I Fight Dragons sign major label contract

At the moment there is a discussion going on in the chipmusic scene. I don‘t follow it, I don‘t like this flaming and hating and cursing on things people can‘t change anyway! The reason for this discussion is that one of the best bands that uses chipsounds has signed a major label contract.

I just wanna say this little thing: Imagine you would get the offer, wouldn‘t you sign? Hell, I would! I mean, I heard it from Psilodump some years ago that he almost got signed. But he said that the label people wanted to change his music too much so he quit the contract. I don‘t know. I love it to work as an underground artist. But I am just doing music. I‘m not playing shows, I‘m not selling merch. There are certain thing I don‘t care about. I don‘t even care about getting famous, if somebody likes my music, fine! If not, go to hell. So I don‘t need a label contract. The small chipmusic scene is enough for me. My universe doesn‘t need to be too big.

If others want to be bigger and dare to deal with major label restrictions, OK for them. Courtney Love said one thing the best: „It’s a radical time for musicians, a really revolutionary time, and I believe revolutions like Napster are a lot more fun than cash, which by the way we don‘t have at major labels anyway, so we might as well get with it and get in the game.“ You can switch „Napster“ with any platform you want, last.fm, Soundcloud, even 8 Bit Collective and micromusic. Musicians don‘t need a major label as long as they accept not beeing in the charts, in all record stores and on the big stages all over the world. Beeing a small artist with a small fan base is OK. It is enough. But as long as you dare to deal with major labels destroying your vision of music, go for it!

And nobody ever said, earning money with indie-/underground-music is wrong. It just doesn‘t meet the points of view of many underground artists.
