Side One Dummy have posted up pre-orders for The Gaslight Anthem’s The ’59 Sound Sessions (containing previously unreleased demos). It’ll be out on June 15th and some packages come with a new 60-page photo book.
Dan Ozzi, writing at Noisey, looks at the collapse of Side One Dummy Records:
Many SideOneDummy artists who spoke to Noisey were reluctant to comment publicly on their situations since their futures with the label are currently being determined. Some have pre-existing contract renewal options under evaluation, others are in the process of obtaining rights to their back catalog from the label, and those with recent or future releases are working with the label on promotional strategies going forward. And since SideOneDummy has largely been home to small to mid-level acts that largely don’t employ lawyers or managers, most have been left to navigate negotiations on their own, and lack the business acumen to do so.
Mom Jeans have signed with Side One Dummy Records.
The founder of Side One Dummy Records, Joe Sib, is on the latest episode of the “Walking the Floor” podcast.
