Ingested have parted ways with Unique Leader Records. The band said that the label are “100% supportive of [their] decision.”
The group issued the following statement:
“The 5 years spent with Unique Leader Records have been amazing for Ingested, and the path we’ve made together is cemented with our most successful releases and period to date.
It hasn’t been an easy ride since 2016, the passing away of the legendary Erik Lindmark was a very difficult period for the label and our longtime friend Jamie Graham has worked tirelessly to secure the future of the label and develop Unique Leader as a major player of the modern extreme metal scene.
You hear all sorts of stories of bands leaving labels and speculation ensues…but to make it clear, Unique Leader Records are not only understanding, but also 100% supportive of our decision to take the next steps in our career as a band.
We are eternally grateful to Erik, Jamie and the entire Unique Leader family for their contribution to the band and are proud to say that we share a history together. We truly wish you the best of luck for the future and it is with a heavy heart that it’s now time for us to say goodbye.”
Unique Leader Records added:
“The Slam Kings have posted some news from their page about the next chapter moving forward. No band has ever done this for us so we really appreciate it ❤️
4 full length albums and 2 EPs later, we wish Ingested all the best in the next step of their careers! We love you guys!!! You deserve all the success and will always be Unique Leader family!”
