According to a recent blog post, Reeve Oliver are label free and will be releasing their new album on their own this summer. You can read a full message from the band below. The band has also posted two new songs on their MySpace page.
Hello, and good evening/morning/night friends of Reeve Oliver.
Due to the increased number of inquiries about the release of our new record, i am writing to let you all know the state of affairs. As most of you know we made a record last spring that was slated to come out this summer on Capitol Records. This is now no longer the case. Why? Well the main reason is that Capitol Records is no longer a label. At least, not in the same form it used to be. Without going to much into it(and not to bore you to death), Capitol’s parent company EMI decided to scale down both of its main labels which are Capitol, and Virgin, into one new company called The Capitol Music Group. They also drastically scaled down their band roster. The only bands that remain on what is left of the label are bands that were already a success, as major labels have little interest in trying to break new bands anymore. At first this was kind of a total drag for all of us in the Reeve camp, as you can imagine. But the good news in all of this, is that we ended up owning this record. We will be putting out the new Reeve Oliver record ourselves. Soon. For now, check out two tunes from the record. We know they are long overdue, and we do hope you enjoy them. Thank you for waiting, and your continued support of the Reeve.
Sean, Brad, and Otisserie
