The new IVM compilation “Family & Friends Sampler 3” is up now for pre-order (Digitally) right here on Bandcamp. In advance of the July 4th release date I am dropping a special full sampler reveal stream below. Check it out and let us know what you think about that new 7-10 Split jam. These two samplers serve not only as a special 18th anniversary celebration for Indie Vision Music but also as one of the final IVM compilations for the foreseeable future. Read more below.
What becomes of the IVM “label” is uncertain at this point. I am doing my best to fulfill obligations and promises I made to the bands this past year and after that it is more than likely I will cease operations as a Record Label. There will always be an Indie Vision Music on the internet and as long as I have fingers to type, ears to hear, and friends to chat with, there will be an IVM. I have over extended myself physically, emotionally, and financially. There is only so much one man can do especially considering I have a large family to take care of, full time job to manage that actually pays my bills, and somehow run this site. Managing bands, releases, packaging, shipping orders, maintaining the site, etc is a huge drain on my senses. Basically I am taking time away from my job and family to do this label thing which has taken on a life of it’s own. I’ve done this so many times in the past and always end back up at square one. It’s time for me just to take a step back and say enough is enough. So from this point forward and once the last few releases are put out, I will be devoting my time towards just maintaining the IndieVisionMusic.com website as it is and making sure people have quality content to read. I’ll use my breathing room to hopefully re-work some things and get some great articles posted up.
