So, there’s this whole The Road To The Sphinx band contest where the best bands, chosen by Sumerian, of course, would get signed to the label. Seems like a great thing, eh? Well, Numbers actually won this contest, along with three or four other bands, and so Kyle Bishop made a small interview and decided to tell everything that happened to them. Listen to the video below, uncovering the shady Sphinx’s works. But here’s a short resume.
-They cannot announce that they’ve won unless they sign a contract.
-Said contract is non-negociable.
-Said contract says that Sumerian own the band, their name, all their previous and upcoming works.
-Said contract says that Sumerian decides who’s in the band, and have the final word on the band’s upcoming music.
-Sumerian controls everything about the band, basically.
-Numbers didn’t sign and walked away (understandably.
-Sumerian sucks (money)!
Here’s the full video. Enjoy!
UPDATE: Sumerian issued a response, and HBIH covered it pretty well so… read on, and make your own opinion out of that!
