The Go! Team’s Proof of Youth out in September

Posted August 20th, 2007 by eric

Bands rarely use up major labels and then toss them aside. It’s usually the other way around. But The Go! Team had the opportunity to exploit Sony’s massive resources without selling its soul with a one-time distribution deal that managed to sell a quarter of a million copies worldwide of its 2004 debut, Thunder, Lightning, Strike. Now the band is back in the indies with an imminent release on Sub Pop. Proof of Youth is out September 11. So, ok, yes, 49% of Sub Pop is owned by Warner Bros., which, I guess, means they’re back in the “indies” by a hair but back in the indies nonetheless.
