Within the very gracious post, Pettit also revealed the real significance of these sales.
Turns out, over a year ago Alexisonfire were informed that their label Distort Records was interested in selling off the rights to the band’s music. Before a transaction with a random third-party buyer could come to fruition, Joel Carriere, Alexisonfire’s manager and the owner of Dine Alone Records, stepped up and took ownership of the music. Pettit explains that it has been agreed that once Alexisonfire is able to secure enough funds to pay back what Carriere spent, he’ll give the masters back to the band.
“This is the first real release since [Carriere made this purchase] and the box set sale has gone a long way towards giving us back ownership of our music. It’s a Christmas gift that you probably didn’t even know you were giving us,” offered Pettit. “So me and the band would like to send a very sincere and heartfelt thank you to everyone who purchased an Alexisonfire vinyl box set.”
