“DUST FOR LIFE” AND WIND-UP RECORDS HAVE PARTED WAYS
(NYC, NY) – Dust for Life and Wind-up Records held meetings at their New York office today, to bury the hatchet. After much talk and good conversation of the situation that had caused the stalemate between the band and label, both parties agree that the best answer is to part ways.
Wind-up feels that although personal differences have been worked out, that letting the band go is the best choice. Wind-up still wants to maintain their publishing relationship, through Dwight Frye, their in-house publishing company, with the band. They will also let the band out of their contract totally, free to resume their careers without any hindrance. “We both buried the hatchet and feel good about that. We also feel that Wind-up was gracious to let us free of our contract to pursue, what they felt, is a promising career. We agree with the decision. It was a good meeting. And there is definitely no hard feelings,” says Jason Hughes, guitarist DFL. Jason goes on to say “We feel like we have a fresh start. We already have major label interest, so we are off to Ardent Studio’s to record with our original producer Pete Matthews. We are very happy. It was a good amicable split with the label.”
With a fresh start and all new songs ready to record it looks like nothing will stand in the way of Dust for Life. The band will continue their South/West tour and then immediately return to the studio for the next album. We will announce the new arrival as soon as it is born.

DUST FOR LIFE – THE TRUTH ON THE CURRENT RUMORS
(Memphis,TN) - Dust for Life recently had an interview on KNAC.com, which the members voiced the truth on their current situation with their record label. As all have heard by now, the rumor that has been launched, by this interview, is that Wind-up Records dropped the band from their roster. This rumor is incorrect. They are still on Wind-up Records. Also, they have not been shopping for a new label at anytime – past or present.
Although the label has removed the bands’ official website and from the labels website, the band is still apart of Wind-up’s roster. As of today, the band is in negotiations with the label to come to an understanding and agreement as to the direction and future of the relationship. The band feels that they will be able to continue to work with the label as long as certain contractual elements are honored. However, their future with Wind-up Records is contingent on the outcome of the negotiations.
Due to the rumor started, it was told that Wind-up has received calls from other major labels as to a “buy-out” for DFL’s contract. This is a definite plus for the guys. Dust for Life will continue to rock regardless of the outcome. You can rest assured that the four rockers, from Memphis, will not be stopped.
Tonight, DFL wanted you, friends & fans, to know how much you are appreciated and thank you for all your loyalty & support! “This means a lot to us,” said Jason Hughes (guitarist). He continues to say that – “We had to stick up for ourselves. We just want to work and play. That’s all we want. All we did was tell the truth. I guess the truth is hard to take.”
If you fans and supporters - do so feel inspired – contact Wind-up Records, through their website, and tell them what you think.
You can also help by spreading the truth through your emails and websites – no one has been dropped or fired!
