In what may be the least surprising announcement, Four Year Strong have announced a separation from Universal Records. While speaking with AltPress on the topic, a member of the band had the following to offer:
“When the merger between Motown and Republic happened, our album was essentially done,” says FYS manager Rob Hitt. “Republic put out the album since it was done and didn’t seem like they had much intention other than that, so we were able to get off the label. Nobody is unhappy about this on our side.”
Four Year Strong have no plans of slowing down anytime soon, they will be one of the headliners for the 2012 Vans Warped Tour as well as the opening act for Blink-182’s impending U.K. tour.
