M.Shadows about 'The Best of 2005-2013' and Warner Bros: "This is childish on a whole new level"
M.Shadows was recently interviewed by 101.1 WJRR, you can read some excerpts below.
About "The Best of 2005-2013" compilation album: "No, we're not promoting it at all. That has nothing to do with us. They, basically, saw the date that Chris Jericho put up, and, from what we understand, they are trying to undercut our new record, so they were trying to put it out the week before. And as childish as things can be behind the scenes with lawyers and stuff, as I’m sure you can imagine, this is childish on a whole new level."
Shadows continued: "You’re gonna try to put this record out right before our new record just to undercut us and try to confuse the casual fan, like, ‘Is this the new record? Or is that the new record?’ Or parents buying stuff for Christmas. So it’s just really childish. It doesn’t even have a good pick of songs. It’s just kind of, like… It is what it is. And it’s a record label, basically, digging themselves into a deeper hole, as far as I’m concerned, ’cause it doesn’t look good to other bands who are potentially gonna sign there, and it doesn’t look good to fans."
