Forever In Combat revealed a few days ago that their upcoming song « Lucid Dreams » featuring Denis Stoff (now in Asking Alexandria) was blocked by Sumerian Records who refused them to release it (label problems, you know).

The band told on Facebook they were on working on it, but it seems that the guys decided not to care about it. « Lucid Dreams » is now out, who knows if it’s for keep? Sumerian is surely angry about that decision but who cares? I’m glad they did it. I’m glad a band had the balls to say « fuck it » to a major label. Read their statement below and listen to this sick new track.

« Fuck it, whatever anyone says we have the right to release this song and we will. We are not letting higher powers manipulate and push us around. We are fighting for what is right and just.

The transaction was made in October 2013, when Denis was in Down & Dirty. Back then, he had told us that they had not been signed yet. They were announced as a Sumerian band in December 2014, months after the deal was sealed.

We have no idea as to why they requested us to not release the song. It would have been surely understandable if they would issue a refund of the amount we have paid Denis back then, but they have no intention of doing that. Even though we collaborated with Denis prior to him being signed to Sumerian (or at least has claimed so to us). Our manager have contacted Sumerian for this matter but their representatives have not been co-operative and now, we have had enough and we are not the ones to accept injustice.

Regardless, we hope you enjoy the song and we also hope that it was worth the delay!

Spread awareness of good music and also this downright absurd story, I think we deserve an extra support for what we are doing, don’t you think? »
