MUTINY WITHIN Activate Anti-Piracy Thing, New Single

MUTINY WITHIN is giving fans a full taste of their upcoming album Synchronicity with the release of their first single Embers.

MUTINY WITHIN also partnered with Tommy Jones (the studio) in a brand new anti-piracy movement called Industry Embers.

In a society where downloading music for free has become accepted and even the norm, people on the outside rarely are able to grasp the true effects of their stealing and how it trickles down to all the aspects of the entire music industry.

Industry Embers is an anti-piracy organization and movement. The goal is to have individuals from different facets of the music industry spread the truth about the damaging effects piracy has on the music industry as a whole.

If you are purchasing music via service-based options, digital downloads, physical CDs, or vinyl, and paying the asking price, the industry salutes you. Industry Embers encourage fans and supporters of music and the Industry Embers objective to tweet their music purchases, regardless of genre, to @IndustryEmbers with the hashtag #BuyMusicOrItsByeMusic.

Jones and MUTINY WITHIN know the downside to piracy all too well.

Jones notes,

“The guys in Mutiny Within were perfect examples of the difficulty an extremely talented new band faces to succeed in this age of online piracy, even after being signed to one of the largest metal labels.”

If you are reading this message, then you too are affected by piracy.  Support music.  Educate yourself.

MUTINY WITHIN made waves in the metal community early in their career by joining the Roadrunner Records roster and touring endlessly on the heels of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album.  Having half the lineup live across the great Atlantic pond and having serious financial difficulties due to the rampant piracy in the music industryMUTINY WITHIN was forced to go on hiatus in 2011.  That was the end of the touring band, but not the end of their music.  Epic metal music can not be contained – not even by the one-eyed pirates of the tumultuous thief infested world we call the “music industry”.  MUTINY WITHIN had so many good ideas and music ready to go, founding member/songwriter AJ and singer Chris Clancy decided to finish what they started and put out the next evolutionary sound of MUTINY WITHIN in the form of the self-produced Synchronicity.

The road is far from over for MUTINY WITHIN, and fans can look forward to many surprises leading up to the highly anticipated release of Synchronicity.
