I didn't realise so many labels were tied up with Sony/PIAS. Devastating news in amongst some truly awful scenes from this part of the UK in the last few days. Likewise, here's hoping for a calm evening (and an end to this stupidity).
All 2000 CD copies of Remember Remember's new album "The Quickening" were destroyed in last weeks fire in Enfield. I've held back from commenting on this as I wanted to have a clearer idea of what the consequences would be. This was obviously a major blow to us as it was to all the bands and labels affected. Thanks to the great resilience and kindness of the great people at PIAS and Rock Action, the albums have been re-ordered and at this point the release date, 26/9/2011, remains unaffected.

Yeah it sure can't be easy, getting all keyed up for your album's release, for this to happen. I'm guessing that the insurance payouts will take some time, so the labels are having to take another huge dent in their finances to restock their catalogue.
