Hear Tony Brummel Threaten ADTR On Original Edit Of “The Document Speaks For Itself”

C’mon, Tony. You’re making this way too easy on the rest of us.

Anyone connected with the emo/alt scene over the last decade needs no introduction to Tony Brummel, owner of Victory Records. His label is responsible for ushering in some of the biggest trends in the scene, but it’s equally, if not more known for the controversy caused by the alleged practices of Mr. Brummel. Most recently, that controversy has involved A Day To Remember and the release of Common Courtesy, which is yet again what brings us together in this post.

Before being trimmed for album placement (and what I imagine is a healthy desire to prevent further legal turmoil), the Common Courtesy track “The Document Speaks For Itself” featured a voicemail message Tony Brummel allegedly left A Day To Remember shortly after the album announcement went live. It’s a cocky, ego-driven rant about Brummel’s plans to sue that should have never surfaced online, but it somehow did and you can now stream the original edit of “The Document Speaks For Itself” at the end of this post.

Common Courtesy is available now through ADTR’s official website. Click here to stream the album.

    This is not as bad as I expected. Pretty light for a Brummel voicemail.

  2. Kriston McConnell says:

    Are there other voicemails out there?

  3. utgjames says:

    Not publicly, at least not that I am aware of. I was referring more to the personal messages he has left me and the people I know.

  4. Kriston McConnell says:

    You know you’ve made it when the owner of a record label leaves you a nasty voicemail.

  5. geeteekay says:

    Am I the only one imagining Tony sucking his teeth and twirling his head around like the diva he clearly is?

  6. Alex Jester says:

    this is so satisfying to listen to :)

  7. Will Nunez says:

    There needs to be a warning for any band that is about to sign to victory that says “Warning, our owner is a douchebag who will force you to change the sound of your music, sue you if you dont like it, and force you into a terrible contract. You’ve been warned”
