By Ben ConoleyPop punkers Set Your Goals have made an interesting departure from their former label, Eulogy Records, by having their manager buy out their contract for a $150,000. Eulogy, responsible for releasing the band’s breakthrough LP, Mutiny, will no longer be releasing the band's follow-up, which they are now in the process of writing.
Vocalist Matt Wilson responded to news of the buyout: The truth is we have many options for our next record and self-releasing is one of the best and a very likely option. This has been discussed within our band and management since the buyout was first brought up. Yes, that's right, our manager is personally offering to buy us out because he has that much faith in our band. There's no promise from a label (though many labels have since caught wind of this and gained interest) and no contract being written up with anyone else waiting to buy us.
