Left To Suffer, The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, Etc. Drop Off Kentucky Irate Fest

More bands have decided to pull out of the upcoming Kentucky Irate Fest. Among them are: Left To Suffer, The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, Kaonashi, Born A New, Downswing, Boundaries, Summoning The Lich, Kingz & Thieves, The Behest Of Serpents, The Delirium Effect, Inferious, Fight From Within, and more. This news comes after Isolator, Artica, Belushi Speed Ball, Wake Up In Tsunami, etc. previously dropped off the event.

The cancellations came about due to buy-on practices, ticket selling quotas, and more. On top of that, Until The Dead Walk were also dropped from the festival and their tour with Filth after vocalist Ren Young was accused of rape by Sero\\tonin vocalist Melissa George. Young was reportedly an investor in the festival, so the troubling allegations are playing a role in the departures as well.

Several bands issued statements:

Left To Suffer:

“In light of recent events we feel like it’s in our best interest to back out of Kentucky Irate Fest. We are sorry to anyone who planned on coming out to see us. We promise we will be back and can’t wait to be back on the road this coming fall. Love you all ❤️”

The Last Ten Seconds Of Life:

“We will not be performing at Kentucky Irate Festival on 8/26 We will still be announcing the new line up next weekend”

Born A New:

“it’s time. we hate to do it, but unfortunately due to recent events and how it’s all unfolded over this past week, we’ve made the decision to also respectfully back out of Kentucky Irate Fest. we did everything within our control to try and make a born a new set happen, but this is for our best interest. we are deeply sorry to all who planned on hanging with us and catching our set. we promise to make it up to y’all, we will be back Louisville. we love y’all 💙”

Downswing:

“We will no longer be performing at Kentucky Irate Fest. Unfortunately this means we will have to cancel our surrounding tour dates as well due to logistical issues. We are so incredibly sorry to anyone that was looking forward to seeing us and to all of the bands/promoters playing or putting on the shows we had booked around this festival. We’re extremely disappointed and angered by the events we have learned about this past week. It’s a shame that something like a heavy music fest meant to unite a scene has done the complete opposite”

The Kentucky Irate Fest is currently scheduled to go on as planned at The MG Prime Entertainment Complex in Louisville, KY on August 26-28. Organizers issued the following statement:

“A lot of misinformation is out there about our festival. Below is a list of CONFIRMED bands to still be performing at Irate Festival (the agents and managers have confirmed their involvement still with our festival). Yes, our venue is behind a Marathon gas station, it is a 2 acre lot that has plenty of room for stages. Yes, we have stages and a full sound team. Yes, we have a high end backline being provided.

Jonny McBee commented:

“To me, the music sounded doomy, dystopian, and apocalyptic. The Browning has always had that tone, but it’s even more prevalent now. Early on, I knew I was going to write the heaviest Browning body of work there was. I needed a theme to fit the heaviness and darkness of the music though. Since I was really happy in my personal life, it had to have a fictional plot. For me, this was about creating a universe.”

Ex-The Browning Drummer Noah “Shark” Robertson Calls Out Earache Records Over Alleged Unpaid Royalties And The Removal Of The Band’s Music From Digital Outlets

As previously reported, The Browning have been involved in a dispute with Earache Records due to alleged unpaid royalties and the removal of the band’s albums “Burn This World” and “Hypernova” from digital outlets. Now, the group’s former drummer Noah “Shark” Robertson has issued a new statement regarding the situation.

Robertson said the following:

“Earache Records. It’s incredibly heartbreaking to have a HUGE chunk of your life and career, simply erased from history. They have taken down a ton of other artists’ music and videos from all the streaming sites and platforms as well, not just The Browning. Music videos, albums, everything. It’s been this way for years. No explanation, nothing. And if anyone messages them or brings it up, including media sites, they just block and ignore.

When they took down The Browning‘s ‘Burn This World‘ album, it had millions upon millions of plays. When they took down our “Bloodlust” music video from Youtube it had over 6 million views. And the list goes on and on. It’s ALL just gone now. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will never make a dime from the albums I helped to create over the years. Fine.

But it’s even more disheartening to know that, in addition to ZERO monetary gain or compensation for the people who created the art, the die-hard fans have no way to listen to that material that we poured our hearts and souls into. People would come up to us at shows on tour and tell us how this song helped save their life or how that album helped get them through a rough time or a traumatic event… Now no one can enjoy any of that music at all.

We can’t relive our past or enjoy those memories. It’s just beyond sad. This is a battle that Jonny McBee has been fighting for a while… he’s hired lawyers and has done everything possible to try and come to some term or agreement.

A while back, I was contacted by a lady who identified herself as a staff member of Earache Records’ accounting department. She mentioned that the label owed us money and that she was looking to resolve the issue. She sent documents and login info and we were able to see that they actually did in fact owe us a good chunk of change.

Mind you, I’m not in the band anymore at this point, but I was excited to know that, perhaps, there was a chance I could make SOMETHING from all that hard work. Endless touring and performing and making countless sacrifices, starving, being broke, sleeping on floors and couches, being stuffed in a van and traveling all over the country, flying to Europe and touring all over Europe.

All that stuff. We went through SO MUCH to make all that happen. Maybe it wasn’t all in vain? Then the communication just STOPPED. They refused to answer anything at all. Lawyers have gotten involved over the years and yadda yadda and now they are refusing to pay anything. This has happened to a lot of different bands. They won’t pay, they won’t answer, they won’t explain anything.

Even though it has been proven, over and over again, that they DO owe the band The Browning compensation and royalties. I don’t even care about the money at this point. The other members who were in the band at that time, who helped create that material, they all have kids now. I’m more wanting them to be able to get something back from all this. SOMETHING at least..

It’s just that I can’t believe on top of all of this nonsense, the content is just erased. Gone. Bye-bye. Of course, the physical albums still exist out there, it was distributed far and wide and was in all the music stores, etc. It’s just maddening that the music and videos have been taken down and have seemingly been erased from history.

Jonny McBee and myself and Jesse Glidewell and Brian Cravey… we put an incredible amount of work, energy, blood, sweat, tears, travel, sacrifice, into making those videos and that music possible. And now it’s just been buried alive. Horrible. And Jonny and the rest of the new members have continued on and have done even more work and have made even more sacrifices over time.

Truth be told, I’ve never made a dime from any recording I’ve put out on any label. I’ve had a couple different albums in stores and on the Billboard Charts and I’ve never received one statement, or update, or payment of any kind.

It’s a huge reason why I wanted to start my own independent labels Zombie Shark Records and Swimming with Sharks Records, because I wanted to actually help up-and-coming bands and not completely screw them. Sure, we are smaller labels, but the point is I always pay what is owed.

I wish these labels would at least communicate or do the right thing. I know tons of artists and musicians out there in the exact same boat. And simply put, it just fucking sucks.

“The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There’s also a negative side.” — Hunter S. Thompson.

Kind regards,
Noah “Shark” Robertson“
