Trail Of Dead have blasted their former label Interscope.
Frontman Conrad Keely launched a stinging tirade against label boss Jimmy Iovine, saying he’s impossible to get hold of now that he’s dating “the lead singer guy of the Pussycat Dolls”. He went on to say:
“At the expense of a massive debt to them of half a million dollars, they really helped us to grow. They’ve taught us about the worthlessness of A&R people, how to yell at idiots running an art department, and how to shake hands with smiling retailers who have no idea who you are.
Hopefully the other bands [on the label] will follow our lead. I mean, Interscope has already killed TV on the Radio and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. There aren’t many bands on the roster left to ruin.”
You tell ’em my son!
