Band tell fans they'll carry on
All Saints have vowed to continue making music, despite being dropped from their label.
As previously reported the band were axed by Parlophone Records last week after disastrous sales of their 2006 comeback album ’Studio 1’.
In a posting on their Myspace site the band said: ”First of all the four of us just want to say that we’re really sorry you didn’t get to know about the recent news i.e. the split from our label before anyone else.
“It really wasn’t that clear cut for a while and we wanted to let things settle for a while and give ourselves a break. As usual the press seems hell bent on repeating their negative reporting and we just felt it was time to say something official.
“As you know we are so happy with the way our single ‘Rock Steady’ went in November. We couldn’t have wished for better and it just showed that we still have our fans supporting us as well as picking up some new ones along the way.
“Of course we’re really disappointed that things didn’t work out with our album, ‘Studio 1’, on Parlophone. We’ve just hit some very weird turns along the way with some of the media which is such a shame for our fans as we know you love our music. It’s funny how things go with certain people’s perception of things – the negativity has been astounding to us all as we’ve only ever been honest about ourselves and more importantly just wanted to make and perform great music.
“We’re going to continue making our music and we’ll keep you in the picture as things go.”
