Trail of Dead manager deflects band’s Interscope diss

Posted November 12th, 2007 by eric

In case you missed Conrad Keely’s Interscope bashing screed on Trail of Dead’s official website just over a week ago, fear not, as the cached version shall live on, having made the rounds across everyone’s RSS feeder, anyway. The band’s manager, Asif Ahmed, has since fielded questions regarding Keely’s diatribe and the band’s split from Interscope, saying it was a “mutual decision.” The band blames its lack of record sales on not being able to “forge a relationship with the marketing folks” at Interscope and the “rounds of layoffs.” Keely took the low road by personally blaming label-head Jimmy Iovine for his unavailability, claiming an alleged affair with “the lead singer guy of the Pussycat Dolls” made him impossible to get on the phone. The band is currently on tour with a cartoon band from Adult Swim and mulling future label prospects.
